    "Lots of changes have come to BMES this year! We have an awesome new principal who is warm and interested in every child and family. This year 2014-15, there is a new counselor, who spends the whole day helping kids be happy and successful at school. It's like BMES is a totally new school. Right when you walk in, the office staff is warm and inviting. There are new procedures for drop-off and pick-up. Everything is very organized and everyone is very caring. The kids are so excited about the "terrific tickets" program. They get a little ticket when they "do the right thing." Then we have a raffle on Fridays. Everyone is working hard to make Burnt Mills the best school for every child."

    "I don't know if any school is perfect, but we are pleased with the education at BMES. There is a new Vice Principle who is fantastic. Thankfully, because the Principle herself is not the warmest person albeit she does care about the kids. The teachers are very dedicated. My child is in the 3rd grade and I've been happy with every teacher he has had. I also like the extra curricular activities for boys after school to learn chess, science and basket ball. It's also great that this school doesn't do a ton of fundraising. That is refreshing!"

    "I agree with the parent who said that the school is like a prison. The school is preparing the children for jail. There are no celebrations because they "don't want to take away from instruction" and the kids are badly behaved. The Spanish Immersion does not help because there is so few students that it causes the English Title 1 classes to have more students than necessary. 30 children in a 4th or 5th grade class of students is too many for this population. As a title one school they should get the numbers awarded by the state for low-income schools. BUT because they have to include the spanish immersion classes (only 30% of the school if that) the most needy students are squished into a classroom and "managed". This is the reason for the prison like feel and the stressed out yelling teachers. Administration needs to change...the whole program needs to change. Everyone is unhappy."

    "My son is in the BMES spanish immersion program and i have to say from K-3 has been nothing less than an A plus experience for my family - it is truly AMAZING with an even more amazing spanish immersion staff! we are hopeful their program will maintained at this high level of excellence in 4 &5 grade levels but not sure how to accomplish? The BMES immersion program truly could provide future MCPS children with wonderful opportunity!"

    "My child is a 3rd grader in the Spanish immersion program here. Our experience with the school has been perfect so far with supper dedicated immersion teachers and great classmates. We have had fine interactions with the administrators and the entire staff as well. The 4th and 5th grade immersion classes need a few more students and to be better supported. Immersion education strengths our competitiveness in this global economy."
