    "Although I love this school, I can see how the reviews are slanted. Happy people do not often write reviews! I love the office staff, and the secretary on the other side in the principal's office is very nice and will help you if the receptionist is gone. The receptionist always remembers our names and has stickers for the little kids. Some teachers are better than others, but there is a lot of school spirit this year, which is great. I feel like it is a safe school. It would be hard to work in a school after the recent events in Sandyhook Elementary, so I have great respect for the teachers and staff at BHC."

    "I find this school to be hit or miss. I rarely hear for my sons teacher...my daughters teacher seems completely checked out. I love Mrs. Derington who is working with my daughter in math. She gives me a ray of hope in a school that feels very cold. She is a dedicated teacher and my daughter is inspired by her. My best advice, whatever Mrs. Derington is doing...rinse and repeat!!!"

    "I can't believe these bad reviews! We moved here from Austin ISD before my son started kinder and he is now in fifth grade. While there were a couple of teachers that we had along the way that had a little burn out, we have had a great experience with the staff and majority of the teachers. Our kinder teacher was good, Mrs. Carson... Our first grade teacher Mrs. Jones was TERRIFIC, our third grade teacher Mrs. Green was GREAT, and our fifth grade teacher Mrs. Crossman is the BEST. Dr. Cady and Christina (receptionist) and Eloise (registar) always answer my emails promptly and are professional and polite to me. The older receptionist when we were in kinder and first was a little scary but she has been gone for along time now. The mascot is a bear and I knew that from when we were in kinder. The PTA puts out lots of stuff that go home in the children's folders, so I can't imagine how any parent cannot know what the mascot is and that they have several days during the year that are wear your school spirit shirt. The older PTA board was a little distant for me in the earlier years, but they have all been replaced and this new PTA board is great."

    "Something missing here...there is a negative vibe at this school. I would agree that the front office staff are very un-friendly. I do like my daughters teacher. Third grade seems organized in terms of activities and I like the real time grade alert...that is great."

    "The biggest issues I see are parent communication, office administration & lack of any school spirit. I am much happier with the teachers this year than last as I have inserted myself into the process more. At our previous school, I would get weekly sometimes daily emails about what was happening in the class or even specifically with my child. Not here, I email the teachers constantly asking about homework, grades, etc. The teachers do respond but it is definitely a one way push. The office staff here is very, very rude. I would agree with many posters here on this. The receptionist and Eloise are just flat out mean and caddy women. They have been rude to me and I have watched them be very rude to other parents and students. This is not a good representation for the school to have the front office staff mean to parents and students. Lastly, I know school spirit is an odd thing to post but there seems to be no pride in the school. The kids just don t seem to care. I don t even know what the mascot is nor do my kids. At our previous school there was a tremendous amount of pride in the school from the teachers, staff and all the kids. Gave it a special feeling."
