Sounds like sour grapes to me, Tamara. Maybe you should transfer your kids to IPS and see how you feel then. Or better yet, home school them. If you approached anyone with the attitude you displayed on here, no wonder the principal walked away.
If things are as bad as you say, yes I agree some investigation needs to happen. But unless things have dramatically gone downhill since I graduated in 1985, I am guessing it is still a good school. The teachers, when I went there, actually cared about the students. Because of the small school size, they were able to give more personal attention than a larger school. Harvey Warrner was my homeroom teacher for at least a couple of years. If he was as good an administrator as he was a teacher, then I commend him for his efforts.
"It's not my fault, I just send them to school and let them come home and do whatever they want. I really expected the school to do my parenting for me. I have to help my kids with my homework so I can't watch as much TV..." This is the problem with our education systems - parents don't expect to have any involvement and when they do, they cause unnecessary trouble.
Personal attention?????????? Do they do that?

Tamara: If it's true that you are a former teacher as you say you are, then I pity your pupils. I can excuse nonprofessionals for their misspellings, grammar and punctuation errors, and run-on sentences, but you, as an educator, are setting a poor example.
To BG: Congratulations. Here's hoping you can sustain the four-star rating.
If I wasn't upset or in a hurry I might not have made any mistakes? Get over it
are you a teacher

tamara is not well schooled in her geography. The last 2008 homicide occurred at 4615 N Evanston (NORTH!). Must be confusing B.G. with B.R.
Must be a bunch of mad teachers on here regarding me being upset. Sorry, if the truth hurts. More worried about MY spelling and geography, than what the actual problem at hand is.

Gosh what an HONOR. The great work of Harvey Warnner, the rest of the administration and counselors, and the entire teaching staff are to be commended. Beech Grove High School is unique in the total teamwork involved when it comes to the academic and overall well-being of every student. (Coach/PE Teacher Dawn McNew and I left before the 2003/2004 school year) I have witnessed the way this group works first hand and this honor truly is a reflection of their tireless efforts into making certain that all that could possibly be done is done to assure each student has the opportunity at the best education. GOSH WHAT AN HONOR, CONGRATS TO ALL OF YOU. DEAN

I believe Butrum was the person trying to cause all the problems when the girls basketball team won the state championship. When the team was going through their run of the state championship, most of the entire school, students and teachers alike, were supportive and the coach even stated that this "attention" being shown toward the school was not just about girls basketball, but Beech Grove and all are a part of that --- one person complained that the team was getting too much attention --- the name was Butrum --- what a coincidence! I believe TB might have a problem everytime BGHS gets some positive recognition. There's a reason she did not take her kids out of the BG school system, she knows it works!

I'm not from here B.G..My daughter goes here now..
I have lived her for 13 years. I will say I actually went to the best school in the U.S. Look it up Moorestown N.J. that's with an es not is. Well, all I can say is this blog section represents the type of people whom live in this community. You people would never survive in the North East. With all of your back stabbing and horrible gossip from one persons views, grow up!:) I hear this is the type of gossipp that goes on here at our school. So for all the people that had to (vent) from one persons views. Are you the type of parent that teaches your children the clicks and gossip?(They must learn from the best!!!)
Now, this four star had nothing to do with lice, cheating,clicks etc. It had to do with 700 students in an entire school that didn't drop out and had desent test scores.
So commend them. Now now ask why we don't have a five star? That's because of thelice,cheating,etc.
You also need to research the fact that only 1% of B.G. students graduate college with a masters.
Why? They are fatory workers and waitresses!! haha
Like their parents who are making idiots over someones little comment!!! Good day!!! Comment on me all you would like I'll never check this thing out again!!! I have a life!!:)
Whatever get a life!:)

just because one child falls behind because of his/her laziness, is not the schools fault. And parenting has a lot to do with your child's education, the child has to be pushed and the parents must be invovled. This is my last year at Beech Grove, and I am sad to leave the school behind, they taught me so much and cared. And this school has worked hard to become the 4 star school that it is.
