    "This year, we finally had the chance to experience public school for the first time. Our child attended a wonderful preschool in the area which more than prepared her for first grade at Bridge Valley. The school is absolutely gorgeous and we were thrilled about the great facilities. At the start of school, however, we noticed right away that our child had learned the majority of the first grade curriculum and would probably be bored. Rather than bumping her up to a higher level math or challenging her, they counseled us to wait months and do more testing. Well, in those months, she has learned virtually nothing new in math and has to ASK the teacher for harder problems!!! I wish they would have listened to us and accelerated her at the time --we feel as if we are home schooling her in areas since she is hungry for a challenge and not getting it at school. I agree that if your child is behind or autistic, it's a fantastic school. But what if your child is already ahead?. Those kids are left to their own devices. No wonder why China and other countries are pulling ahead of us in education..our schools have to do more to take challenge the top third!!"

    "Very disappointed in the school. They appear to have great programs for children who need more help learning, but those in the top third are left to their own devices far to often and are not challenged. We have met with staff and leadership to address our concerns and have been disappointed with the lack of action. The teachers are focused on the bottom third and lack the ability to challenge the top third. Additionally, test scores are not in line with the rest of the district at this elementary."

    "One of the better schools in Central Bucks. A mural on the stairs that lead upstairs, elevators, big classrooms with cubbies (that look like lockers) instead of coat closets. The bathrooms are very clean. And the gym entrance (green door) has a whole other part of the school. They have 3 playgrounds and swings. The kickball field is accessibly through a fence opening. The one playground is near the entrance that has that ugly wasp's nest up on a 2nd floor window. I love this school!"

    "This school is wonderful! We have had an amazing experience with Bridge Valley Elementary! The teachers truly care about the kids education, the administrators show strong leadership and are very involved day to day, the curriculum is challenging...BVE has so much to offer."
