    "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."

    "Teachers are amazing! One parent that has made the school decline in 3 years! That PTA mom rules this school. You can't send clorox wipes in because one mom complained. They have taken all the parties away. They say it's a distraction but test scores are falling so maybe they should open their eyes and realize all the kids from the neighborhood are leaving that school. It's the front office and teachers that kept me there that long! No more!!"

    "The teachers are wonderful and the entire staff works very hard to ensure the children receive a quality education. My problem is with the Blue Heron/Grant Ranch mothers'. They are ridiculous. They will literally turn their back on you if you are not in their clique--juvenile is the only word to describe their behavior. Unfortunately these mom's have a lot of power in the school , as well as instilling that attitude in their own children .It makes for an uncomfortable situation socially for kids and parents. If you and your child are laid back, it won't be a problem, but if you really want to be an involved parent or if you have a sensitive child, it can be rough. If the latter is the case, opt for Grant Ranch Elementary, the parents are much nicer."
