    "Buckalew is a wonderful school. The principal, Mrs. Crews, is amazing. My child has learned so much from his wonderful teachers. They challenge him in a warm, loving way. I have nothing, but wonderful things to say about Buckalew. When we first moved here, we were leasing and my son went to Buckalew. He loved the school so much that he demanded we buy in an area only zoned to Buckalew! Luckily, we were able to find a home in this area. I love that we can bike to school and are welcomed with sweet smiles from the cross guards to the teachers every day. Wonderful experience."

    "I was dropping my child off and I overheard the music teacher discussing a student named Ben T. She was basically gossiping about a student who had issues in her class or school and she wanted to make sure the art teacher knew about it. To me it would be professional for her to discuss the student in a meeting not in an outside setting where other parents like me heard her clearly. It was very unprofessional and the fact she talked about a student like that openly was very disturbing. She was talking openly to the new art teacher in the open. Remember that any rumors or bad characterization, especially about a student is terrible teacher conduct. Buckalew Elementary fails with that type of teacher."

    "The school just started and immediately we already have a problem with the music teacher. I do not know how long this teacher has been in position at this school, but she is not qualified to be teaching the children. We plan on contacting the District board immediately if we have further problems."

    "Buckalew earns its rank due to high emphasis on standardized testing. The teachers benefit from a community with parents that are very involved in their kids education. Don't let the idea of this school earns high score based on the teachers. You can put ANY qualified teacher in this environment and they will do well simply because of the community they will serve. Bullying in today's school is thoroughly reviewed; however, the school forgot to include and apply bullying by teachers. Certain teachers are widely viewed as tough disciplinarian, but there are other teachers known to be just plain bully. When older bully bullies a young person, it is usually very discreet, but as a parents who is actively engaged with their child, it will be very obvious. Speak with your child and make sure you discuss each of their educator. You will identify it easily when the child is being targeted. Couple of bad apples ruin an otherwise decent school. The bullying topic is widely discussed, but the principal is weak at actually handling the conflicts as evident is another post here. Teachers and educators, don't let the comfort of the community make you complacent in your jobs."

    "My son just completed his first year at Buckalew and it has been nothing but a wonderful experience. My husband and I have felt supported and the communication has been perfect. Communication is two ways, so we have been sure to be open on our side; we have never felt ignored and our concerns (which there have been few) have always been addressed satisfactorily. My son has a chronic medical condition and the school proactively reached out to us to create a 504 plan. Despite his medical problems he is very bright and I have appreciated the lack of a "one size fits all" approach. He was continually challenged by his teacher, which was no easy task since the class composition was clearly a mix of skill levels in just about all areas. We have enjoyed all of the activities, events, and the opportunity to eat lunch with him. The school is very lucky to have such an active community supporting it and there are lots of opportunities to get involved. We feel fortunate to send our son and soon our daughter here."
