    "My childrens school is absolutely amazing. The teachers and staff go above and beyond what our previous schools did. The programs are wonderful, the district keeps you informed and up to date on any changes or events that they are producing\sponsoring. The teachers are encouraging and supportive. They have kept me informed of all the progress that my children have made in just this course of the first semester. This is truly an amazing schho. Thank you Bales staff, for all that you do!"

    "This school has made such a difference in my childrens life. Before attending this school my son found himself outside most of the groups of children. Now he comes home everyday talking baout his friend and that friend. His teacher has also stated that she has witnessed a change in his attitude and self confidence. She works with him almost daily to help nuture and strengthen his self-assurance. Thank you soo much to the Teachers and Staff at Bales Elementary."

    "OMG!! I cannot believe how wonderful this school is!! My children enrolled this past year in the Grades 3rd and %th and I have heard nothing but positive feedback when my kids get home. They are now excited to get up on the morning and attend the AWESOME Before School Care Program with Miss D. The activitites that she plans are interactive and encourage thier creativity. My daughter has decided to join the after school drama club and she cannot stop talking baout how much fun it is and the plays that the put on our inspirational and kid appropriate. I cannot say enough positive things regarding this school. P.S. Mr. Lugo: You Rock!!"

    "This school is incredible. The staff the teachers the principal. Yes you Mr. Lugo. The kids here are happy and excited about there days. My children get up and look forward to spending time away from home at such a wonderful school. I cannot believe how my children have developed over just the past few months since attending this school. I am so glad that we decided upon Bales to enroll our children in. Keep up the amazing work!!"

    "Bales School is a great place for kids! Whatever budget shortfalls there may be with any district, the teachers and administrators at Bales truly work their hardest to provide a top notch education and fun learning environment for their students. The principal, Mr. Lugo, is one of the main reasons we have kept our children at Bales. His love for his students is evident in everything he does. This is true with all of the administration and staff. You do find the normal cliques among the students that you do anywhere, but we have never had an issue with bullying and our kids have never felt "left out". There are a lot of choices for education here in Buckeye, and I have to say we wouldn't think of moving our kids out of Bales.The one area that could definitely improve is that of parent participation. But that is a personal issue, and I'm sure if more people were able to help out they would, but you can't fault a school for it's parents!"
