The teachers have been great. However, given the lack of community and school spirit, I am looking at better school options.
I rate this school one star to let other parent's know their not alone and to speak out. It's "NOT OK" to be ignored when something is wrong. Iv'e given 100% effort in backing the school with big PTA sales. Even though I have had several unfair eperiences.
My daughter had a terrible elementary experience with staff teachers including the principal. She always came home crying with stress telling me staff and teacher where mean to her. She told me the worse was when the teachers made them run so many laps around the field that her legs would hurt the next day. This was done if they were misbehaving in any way daily.The teachers told the kids all year how great a last day of school pool party was, only to be held against them, especially the last weeks that she is not going each time they felt it was useful tactic for discipline. My daughter had never had any problems with any the teachers of any other school and never came home crying as much as she did with this school. I am only putting this rating up for other parents to know and hopefully we have enough people coming forward and rate the school we can give a children a voice through the parents.
I am a parent with my 3rd child now in his last year at BVE. My other two (now in High School) attended BVE and it was the best experience of public elementary school my children could have experienced. With my 3rd child, we experienced only one 'sketchy' year and it truly was the teacher, not the school. I just had to keep on top of it, to make sure the year remained positive. The Principal's ONLY focus is running the school. This can be perceived as a positive thing, but a little more connection with the parent community would be great. She literally looks right through you in the event you meet with her to touch on a concern. She began with her term here with the 'If you don't like it, let me get the door for you' attitude. It has since subsided, but only a bit. GREAT teachers!
