My children have gone to school here since it opened and we love it at Butterfield. Yes, many teachers and admin have been there, but the school has been improving its scores year after year! The teachers and staff are fantastic and my children have excelled here!

My kids have been going to this school the last 4 years. I use to LOVE it!! Now, the principal has left and some of the best teachers left as well. I do believe that the 5 out of 10 appropriately describes not only the academics, the teaching and admin staff, but the over all quality of the school. This is so sad and will be bittersweet as my children will not be returning there next year with how this school has just gone down hill.

My two sons have been thriving at Butterfield. They are challenged and have have teachers who not only care about their academic growth but also shaping the kind of men they will become. In their years there, there have been a couple of disappointing teachers but those in each case my concerns were met with genuine concern and proactive management. My boys are in great hands with the staff at Butterfield and I trust them entirely to educate and look after the most incredible gifts I will ever have. The sense of community has been incredible! As a parent, my job is to educate and shape my sons with my active involvement and I am so happy that for the 7 hours they are at school, I can trust that they are being taught solid academic instruction and character traits that will prepare them for life!

My daughter is new at this school this year. Now that it has been about a month I do have to say this the best school she has gone to. If I have questions or problem they take care of you right away with no problem. Everyone I have talk to has been very nice. They know what they are doing and understand as a parent that your child safety is number one. I believe they have all the children at this school safety number one... I will be taking my child back to this school next year.

My child is new to Butterfield this year. We were welcomed and found the principal and office staff friendly. We have been disappointed with comunication between the school and home. We do not have any idea how our child is doing until we receive her reportcard. By then it is too late for us to provide her with needed support at home. Our child likes her teacher and classmates although she does tell us the teacher yells at the class. We haven't had opportunities to meet other parents at the school. I am disappointed that my child does not receive Tech training due to budget constraints. I feel this is too important to the childrens future to be excluded from their education. The classrooms should all have computers in them for student use. My older grown children had computers intheir classrooms 20 years ago. There must be ways to get the community to help out with things like this or funraisers to be held. Here is hoping for a much better school year, next year (2011-2012).

Butterfield is a great school. I have 3 students that attend and truly enjoy their teachers and receive a quality education. As a parent it is nice knowing your students wake up excited for school.

This is a nice facility, with a great faculty, and my grandchildren are thriving! Butterfield's dedicated teachers should not have to pay for supplies out of their own pockets, but many do to ensure they have the tools they need to make a bigger impact on their students. Their caring generosity is greatly appreciated! This school deserves to win, and if we do, it will truly be an investment into the lives of our kids - which is what it's all about, right? A VERY WORTHY CAUSE!

With the limited State of Arizona support and the relatively 'low' tax monies recieved, this school has some of the most ambitious, dedicated and sincere teachers I have ever met - both in school and as a teacher.

Both my children go here and the staff is excellent. They do a great job of communicating with and involving parents in the success of our children's education. The Literacy and Magical Math Nights were incredible. This is a caring, above average elementary school.

I love this school, my daughter wakes up before her alarm goes off just to be there early every day. The teachers, staff, principal, and nurses are very friendly, and her teacher Mr. Goss is great!! I have met teachers in her 2nd grade level and alot of other teachers in other grade levels and they all seem wonderful. I feel she is getting a good education as well. I as well think some of the parents have issues, and it definately passes to their kids and you can tell which ones, but unfornutately there is always going to be a few of those around, but as for Butterfield I think highly of it and the teachers and staff, and I appreciate them and their hard work. So far so good!!!

Butterfield is a brand new school, only open for one year, so there is a lot of fine-tuning to be done. I have found the principal, asst. principal, teachers and staff to be very friendly, caring and hard-working. I feel my son is getting a very good education. The kindergarten program is amazing! My only problem with the school has been other parents. Rude and inconsiderate...and this will be passed on to their children. Other then that, no complaints about Butterfield. Only appreciation and praise =^)
