    "Just started my daughter in kinder @ BHC. This is my first child so I'm not sure what to expect with regards to her schooling. Her teacher was hired a week before school started and it appears that she got the smallest room at the end of the hallway. It is very cramped and cluttered although it seems like the items in their are what you would expect to see just not enough room. I have lots of questions about the school and how my daughters day is structured. I guess those will get addressed at parent orientation next week. The teacher has sent out a few emails during this first week so that is promising. It is concerning to read many of the reviews here. I hope our experience here will be good. Sounds like involvement with your childs class and school may be key. Stay tuned...."

    "I took my children out of this school when they were in second and third grade. My other two have never gone to this school. I transfer them every year. The experiences I had the 4 years my children were there were unbelievable. Teachers were OK. Some better than others. The staff was hit or miss. Some friendly while others not so much. Communication, professionalism, and common courtesy were seriously lacking. I never felt an honest team effort. There seemed to be a lack of spirit and the atmosphere was mundane. One of the best decisions I made was removing my children from this environment."

    "My oldest started going to BHC in kinder, I have been a class parent for 3 yrs for my oldest, and my middle one, when he went to kinder. I will sign up this year too. All of my kids teachers are incredible! I am involved with my kids education and keep in touch with teachers, even if I am not their class parent. I make sure that the teachers have cleaners for the kids desks (they eat snack on them everyday)! I make sure they have extra snacks for the ones that forget theirs. I make sure they have supplies needed, even if I can't buy them myself I let the class parent know, and they send out the requests. I do not have any problems with the teachers or staff. I would like to see parents more involved, reach out and connect with the people that are spending 7 hrs EVERYDAY, with YOUR child(ren), and you will have a fantastic year at BHC, I know, I have had 4 yrs and counting!"

    "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!!!"
