    "Black Mountain is an amazing school! They have been rated a High Performing Reward School as well as an A school by the Arizona Department of Education. They have also received the designation of A+ School of Excellence by the Arizona Education Foundation. The teachers are the best around and make a huge difference to students both high and low. The students at Black Mountain are greeted with a smile every day and given many opportunities to excel. The last reviewer clearly does not know what they are saying."

    "This is my first year at BMES and as a parent of two young children, I can tell you that this school was a deciding factor in where my family decided to build our home a few years back. I enrolled my oldest in the pre-school at BMES and from day one, everything about this school just felt right. The office staff knows all of the 500 students by name, the teachers seem genuinely happy as they walk down the halls, and there is an overall sense of pride among the students. BMES is more than just a school, it is a community....a family. As a very involved parent in the school, I can tell you that when I walk down the halls, I have no doubt in my mind that my children are challenged, respected, and valued here each and every day. I couldn't have asked for a better early education experience for our family! We are proud to be a Bobcat Family!"

    "My kids are in third and fifth grade and have attended BMES all years. The teachers and staff are amazing. The teachers established a tutoring session before and after school to help the students improve their understanding of the AIMS. My children wanted to go to these sessions which showed me that the teachers made a great impact on relating the importance of the AIMS and improving their overall knowledge to them. BMES is a top rated school for more than the A+ rating. The teachers, staff, and principal all try and do what is best for their students first. If there are any suggested improvements please push them up to the principal and PTO so we can try and make every child's experience amazing at BMES."

    "Clearly the post written a few days ago is meant for the Black Mountain in Golden Valley and not this one. It says that there is a lot of turnover. This is not correct as most of the teachers have worked at Black Mountain for many many years. In fact, this school is so great that people come from all over to work here. I heard that with one opening, there are 60 applicants. The comment about the principal's inexperience is completely wrong. Mr. Owsley has many years of teaching experience and many more years of administrative experience in Cave Creek and another school district. He is an award winning principal at the district and state level. The kids, staff, and parents love him. The teaching staff is one of the best in the state and earned an A from the Arizona Department of Education and an A+ School of Excellence designation from the Arizona Education Foundation. This is a huge accomplishment as it is done through a thorough outside analysis by experts in education. This school is amazing and anyone that says otherwise is misinformed. I have had nothing but fabulous experiences at Black Mountain for the years that my children have been here."
