Bowman is a wonderful elementary school. It houses an open optional program (entry via lottery)and several special needs programs in addition to the traditional neighborhood side. My two daughters are in the optional program and we could not be happier with their educational experience. The program requires parent involvement and that allows for a tight community feel, lots of enrichment opportunities and more differentiated learning based on student level. The neighborhood program is exceptional too with dedicated teachers and parent support. Things like monthly movie nights, math and science night, Fall Carnival and DJ (dance party)/ field day bring all of the kids and families together. The school is dedicated to giving back to the community and have joined with local businesses to provide 'kicks for kids', keep a lunch/ clothing etc. closet stocked for families in the community on hard times. Every year families very generously come together to make Christmas/ Hanukkah/ happen for several families who would otherwise have .Bowman does a wonderful job teaching kids not only reading/writing/math/science ....but also how to be loving and caring citizens.
Our special needs program is top notch. We have the best teachers around!
We have a great team of teachers working together to provide a safe and educational experience for our children.
Bowman is not good school. The teacher's tell you one thing the grades show other.
Bowman is a great school. Each year my children have had caring, engaging teachers that work with my children to help them to succeed. I am so thankful to all the help and support that they have given my children.
Our teachers are soo kind and caring. My daughter loves to go to school and begs not to miss.
Bowman Open Optional Program allows/requires the children to think about what they are learning. They are taught to research, reflect, and question information.
I have been a teacher at this school for 15 years. It is full of caring, positive staff. students and parents. We get so many subs who request to come back to our building because 'it feels good to be here'. I agree.
My daughter is autistic and she has had the most wonderful teachers and aids since she started preschool. She is doing very well and all of her teachers at Bowman deserve recognition.
It is so welcoming-everyone is invited in to learn, play, and share!
Bowman is a very family friendly school that encourages parental involvment.
Bowman has an amzing open opional program, my daughter loves school and is doing great!
We've had teachers, a speech specialist, music teacher, gym teachers, librarians, and computer teachers do an awesome job with my kids. They really love their school.
I love this school! My son is a kindergartener, and they've made it easy to send him to school!
