The principals @ the school are very unprofessional about thier job they have thier picks of kids if your child is not 1 of them then they will be picked on kicked out of school..MR.Packeston is a liar hes lied 2 me about my childs actions behavior..my kids cant get a education because of this..Before my child went to this school we had no problems strait a's so forth and so on...Now that they have attended HMS NO GRADE REPORT AT ALL this year!!!!!!!!!! This is the 1 worst school of the tri-state area ...If you seem 2 have the same problem or just a lil. bit of one grab a lawyer so tour child can maintain an education..If you dont they make sure your child looks guilty in everything they do even @ lunch!!!!!!!!!Take the time to think is my child being treated fair or not?????????? I wish i would had noticed this before my child was their sitting duck... Everyone has thier own oppinion so if I affend any PARENTS I apologize..TRUTH HURTS!!!! A parents actions or talking SHOULD HAVE NO AFFECT ON THIER CHILD but it does if thier not in the schools click...Trust us we have been doing this for a while now...

My child attends HMS and has always LOVED school until this year! My child has been bullied made fun of and ect. one of the principals told us that its gonna happen and what is she suppose to do ? Then she went to asking what school she attended last year when my child answered her she replied and said you should be tough anyway look where your from!! So i really dont know what else to do ive had meetings with the teachers and Mrs.Archer and the only one that seems to be interested in my child is Mrs.Archer!!! By the way we are from the westend and i knew deep down inside that this is the way the westend kids was/are gonna be treated when they was talking about putting west and good ol cammack together!!! Nothing against the cammack "kids" because it isnt there fault but the teachers are the adults here !! I cry when my daughter calls home or when she comes home crying because someone said something hurtful to her and the teacher just says it will be ok just dont pay them any attention well thats easier said than done!!I thought cabell county schools had a no bullying policy? But it that for just certain students? I think so!!!

Good luck with the "Anti-Bullying" policy ! They do NOT give a damn. My child attend BHMS and on the 3rd day of school got kicked in the shin, which caused it to bruise and bleed. Out of fear my child did not report it. The "bully" called my child names etc. and two wks later kicked my child in the butt and my child turns around and hits the bully. My child got suspended for 10 days, the bully...NOTHING !!! Because my child did not report to any teachers what was going on for them to confront the bully, for peer face to face counseling and so forth. Luckily numerous friends of my child went to bat for my child and the suspension was shortened to 3 days and the bully got suspended for 1. It is now documented but let's see how the rest of the year goes. The board and their rules SUCK ! They make you follow a policy and a 3 step procedure before things are done. I wish you luck, you'll need it. But fight like hell for your baby and become a bitch if you have to for your childs well being.

Their is a child advocate lawyer, I do not have her name now but can have it by Monday.( it's in the office ). Starting after this next grading period....I will be allowed to sit in my childs extra cruticular classes ( ie: art,music, gym, etc.) I will be attending those classes to observe my child and my child's behavior.

When they closed Lincoln Jr. High :( half got sent to BHMS, some to Enslow, and Cammack. Kids coming from Lincoln to BHMS was PURE HELL !!!! We got called racial names, assumptions, even the sports were already picked when we got there. The rich kids assumed we were poor and had nothing. And they would love to hear if my dad would have gotten arrested or put in jail over the weekend. They thought that was the highlight to their week !!! Because their daddies didn't do that kind of thing. Even the teachers would show favoritism to the BHMS students over the ppl from Lincoln Jr. If someone got in trouble and no to blame...they grabed up the asst. principal from LJH Kathy Housaflouck.....and she would pick the one that got in the trouble. I'm telling you,,,,stand up, be a bitch and bite down on them.

Beverly Hills isn't full of rich kids anymore. I don't think combining with Enslow will be any big deal.

My daughter goes to HMS and a little punk went around telling everyone that she is a crack head the day after the same punk hit my son causing him to lose a tooth and he had a knot on the back of his head. I told the police they didn't do anything and I told the principal and he said that he would take care of it and still nothing has happened. My daughter brought home her 2nd term report and had 8 zeros in math and 6 the 1st term this is ridiculous only in math no other subjuct. Why do I give these people my name, number, and address if no one uses this info to inform me that my child is doing poor in their class. Now my daughter has to go to recovery school I signed the paper and asked the teacher to call me well this was Tuesday and still no call back. Come Monday someone will talk to me and answer my question as to why no one called or sent me a letter to tell me that my daughter is failing math until now 4 months later?

What is up with all the whining parents and kids scared of bullies. My son goes to HMS, and I think it is ridiculous how thin skinned parents and kids are today. So your kid got kicked in the skin, man up and kick someone back. There is your answer, my son got bullied and let it go on for a while then kicked the kids ass. He got suspended sure, but you know what, all the kids who were messing with him stopped and he has not had a bit a trouble since, oh other than being labeled as a bully now. LMAO !!

Beverly Hills DOES NOT have rich kids. Try Barboursville Middle ! Parents up there driving Caddys, Denailis, hummers, BMWs, etc. Money talks up there....I'm glad I got my kids the hell out of there 3 yrs ago.

If you read my post a little closer you illerate, I did say he hit the bully back ! Schools are NOT like they were even 15 yrs ago when I graduated. When my child was in elementary a 5th grader brought a knife in school to take care of someone ! But that's OK to you ?

I am thankful that my child goes to a school in Wayne County that does not tolerate any form of bullying. Ultimately, the principal is responsible and there ARE actions he/she can and are required by law to take when made aware of a bullying situation at THEIR school.
Why are you parents putting up with administrators who aren't doing their jobs and continue to rake in those big bucks?

Your sending your kids to school in Huntington. My children attend school in Barboursville and I have never had trouble with my children being bullied nor have I heard of any bulling. The principles are great, teachers are great and my child gets a better education because their not destracted by such nonsense as bullys, unfair staff and dramatic parents.

Because Barboursville is perfect. Their children never bully and are full of sugar with a cherry on top. Mom doesnt work and has time for PTO meetings, no black kids, no poor kids...life is grand! This has been the attitude since I was in school. Never changes!

It's always hard integrating two schools. High and East coming together was awful and I feel sorry for the Enslow kids when it happens to them. I hope the kids that are being bullied find some peace. If nothing else, I hope they eventually knock the crap out of one of those little turds :)

THAT IS THE BIGGEST BUNCH OF BULLSHIT I'VE EVER HEARD !!!! Those kids up there are the worst to be around. They are rude, demanding, and major BRATS !!!! My child went to VOBE and was treated like crap by the principal there at the time and the teachers. And the kids were worse....they would throw playground mulch at my child, cuss, take food off my child's tray at lunch, etc. all because my child had a minor disability. Several of the kids said in 5th grade once, that they would not be my childs friend because they didn't want to catch the "disability" of a freak. We moved and put our child in BHMS and it was the BEST decision we EVER made ! Our child makes great grades, tons of friends ( accepts my child for who he/she is ), and plays on sports teams there. You need to open your eyes and see that BMS is by far NOT perfect.

I don't care one bit about any ones children but my own. My children are taught respect and manners at home as we as parents are supposed to teach them. They go to school for education and they get the rest at home. My children are not bullys nor have they ever been bullied. Barboursville Schools are better by far than Huntington schools. And I don't think it has anything to do with the schools, it has to do with the parents raising these children. And not every child in Huntington is a bully or a poor student but let's be honest, there is a lot more crime in Huntington than Barboursville. I work very hard to raise my children... good parents=good kids. Good kids= better schools. It's a very simple concept!
