    "Overall, the school is fantastic. I am an active parent and have found most of the teachers and staff to be great educators. They are attentive to the children's needs. The new principal and assistant principal are very responsive and loved by parents and children. I am an immersion parent. I've had issues with a few teachers over the years but especially one teacher who openly favors students who are female and native Spanish speakers. The teacher makes fun of kids he thinks needs extra help in front of other parents. Unfortunately this is the most productive teacher in the school. Since the teachers do this no wonder the kids make fun of each other."

    "We are fans of Burnt Mills Elementary knowing that the staff is super dedicated albeit the school is on the "old" side. Kids received chrome books this year and all of the classes of promethium boards. The teaching staff is on the young side and highly motivated. We love the new principal! She is warm and bubbly...everything you would expect in an elementary principal. Overall we are happy and look forward to our youngest starting kindergarten in the fall and our oldest in the fifth grade."

    "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 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!"
