    "We have had a wonderful experience at this school. Our two children are thriving here and love school. They both attended the wonderful preschool program and my oldest has loved her elementary classes. The teachers and staff are fabulous and care so much about the kids. This school pulls from several different neighborhoods. I find the parent community friendly and supportive. There are many opportunities to get involved and build connections through volunteering in the classroom, PTA involvement or events and the school advisory committee."

    "This school has a very welcoming environment. As soon as you enter the building, the office staff and principal greet visitors and offer to help. We are new to the school but feel so embraced. There are many volunteers who provide support in classrooms. The teachers are incredibly talented, engage students in learning which is fun, and embed brain breaks throughout the day. The music, art, and p.e. program is outstanding and there are a variety of before or after school extra-curricular programs. The school's PTA is active and so supportive of the school. It's a great place to be. My children love their school, teachers, paras, and principal. They know that they care and work hard to support their learning. I am so thankful that my children have the opportunity to learn in such a wonderful place. THANK YOU!"

    "This School is ok, but the whole bullying issue has made it very hard to stay."

    "I placed my child at this school believing it was the "best" elementary school in this area. It wasn't our home school, but I chose this school with high hopes for an outstanding education. The cliques really do exist-I would say epidemic level. If you aren't a stay at home mom like the vast majority, you were perceived as an "uninvolved" parent. Totally false. I felt more involved because I was focused on my child's education and less interested in the "social hour" encountered on a daily basis. It wasn't just the parents who perpetuated this entitled environment, the teachers were just as guilty. It's not ALL the parents, but those who did not behave this way were few and far between. Mr. Summers was a "puppet" for many of the affluent families because he didn't want to risk losing their financial support. What will the parents do now that he has moved on to Columbine? We have moved back to our home school which is ranked HIGHER than BH, is more diverse, has an AMAZING principal, and our child is getting an outstanding education. Our child is learning REAL LIFE LESSONS and money or the color of your skin is not the focus. Ecstatic and thankful to be in a GREAT school now!"

    "No school is perfect, however I encourage families to allow their children thrive in a school that supports diversity, respect, professionalism, free thinking and creativity."
