    "My school is awesome because teachers care about students and go far above and beyond their duties to show it. My children are learning and growing by leaps and bounds!"

    "We moved here from out of state and had kids at Verrado for 2 years. Then we bought a home in the Bales precinct and this is our second year here. While it was initially a shock to get used to different demographics coming from Verrado, it has been a vary pleasant experience. YOU play a huge roll in your childrens learning. Be active in their rolls as students, volunteer at school (Bales needs it!) be friendly with staff! Principal Lugo has an amazing background! Ask him about it. Get to know him. comments on this forum about never meeting the principal are funny to me. Have YOU walked in and asked to meet him? I have found out that people in Arizona are friendly, but not outgoing. You have to put in effort to get response, and that is okay! Most importantly, my kids LOVE going there. I have 3 that attend. We chose to keep them there after being accepted to a charter school. Go Bales!"

    "My children attended this school and it was an awful experience. There are a handful of teachers who are there because they want to be and it shows. The other teachers party with parents and then talk about it at school! Special needs are not dealt with, bullying is not dealt with and the principal has his way of placing a placebo on every issue you bring forth. Basically, if you advocate for your child you are not treated well at this school, you are sneered and talked about and that does not make for a healthy learning environment."

    "This school overall to excellent. The principal and counselors worked with my child overtime to help him achieve. There are a few teachers who could use some sensitivity training and manners bot they don't teach that in college..."
