    "My twin sister's son was in Kinder here this school year. He had occassional mild potty accidents (turned out to be a medical condition) that he was sent to the nurses station & always cleaned-up himself. The teacher he had & the principal were impatient about his progress (he started seeing an occupational therapist & was seeking medical attention) & right before winter break the principal bluntly told them to unenroll their son from the school. Still to this day I cannot believe that was even legal, but very unethical & disheartening none-the-less. They didnt fight the school due to not wanting to go back into an environment where he wasn't wanted. I am in the same school zone & will NOT enroll my 3rd grader there for the way they unfairly & brashly treated a poor little 5 year old & his family!"

    "I would have to disagree about Dr. Cady. She is outside welcoming kids every day, and always has a smile for us. The one issue we had was taken care of quickly, and it turned out that it was simply miscommunication. The teachers and staff are human beings, and they have to jump through the hoops that the state put up. Sometimes what is best for a child is not what is easiest for them. We have had caring teachers, friendly staff, and have developed a good relationship with administration. That doesn't mean that we can always have everything our way, but we are listened to and respected as a partner in the team effort to educate our child."

    "A school's quality starts from the administration down. The principal, Dr. Cady, has reached her level of incompetence when it comes to handling anything more than her day to day responsibilities. She avoids conflict and if you disagree with her, you can expect no eye contact and avoidance. There is a negative atmosphere in this school. The teachers don't seem cheerful. Most are "teaching to the test" because of the excessive testing required by the state. BHCE has mostly good teachers who are there doing their job, have a happy face for parents and do just enough to be called a "good teacher". There are bad teachers & they have a few awesome teachers. They don't put the child first. They say they enjoy parent involvement but the truth is that they enjoy it as long as the parent doesn't question anything they do. We had to make a complaint to the school district to get anything accomplished. It's easy to place too much importance on things like if the receptionist smiles but if you have an experienced eye, you begin to see the toxicity starting from the top and spreading down through the ranks."

    "We absolutely love this school. We've had one child go through with flying colors and have another that is as ready as can be to start second grade. Both of them have loved it there very much. Teachers that truly care about the children, initiatives that promote growth and ownership of learning ideals, and an administration that across the board truly goes the extra mile to get children, and teachers, to be the very best they can be... overall just a great place for your kids to learn and grow."

    "I love this school. I had a kindergartner last year and we can't wait for 1st grade! I have always felt that my child was safe, and administration is very helpful, you just need to be reasonable and realize that they have hundreds of kids and teachers, and there are only 2 of them. I feel lucky to have a child here!"
