I have had three children attend the kindergarten center and all three had a wonderful learning experience. They were always treated with the utmost fairness and kindness and were certainly never mistreated as the first person spoke of in her message. As a parent, I always felt welcome in the school at any time and was always encouraged to participate in any school activities. My sincere appreciation to each teacher, Mrs. Wilkerson, who leads the school in such a positive manner, and to all other school personnel that make the center a place where children learn and thrive!

The Kindergarten Center is a wonderful place for children. They have a loving and caring staff that provides the best educational training. Anyone who has spent time at the Kindergarten Center knows the children are well equiped to meet personal and educational goals in the future.

I have been a teacher at Batesville Kindergarten Center since its inseption. I have never seen anyone being dragged down the hall nor have any parents ever been discouraged from volunteering at our school. Of course I am very proud of our school and the job that we do with our students. Every faculty member at my school is highly qualified and strives to always do their best. Our principal is available to us at any time and goes above and beyond what is expected of an elementary principal. I say thank you to all the parents that have written defending our name against this one parent who is trying her best to tear us down.

The Batesville Kindergarten Center is one of the best schools in Arkansas. It is a child's garden which is the definition of Kindergarten. The teachers and staff are so wonderful and kind I could not think of anyone saying other wise. Anyone wishing to enroll their child in Kindergarten really should visit the Batesville Kindergarten Center and tour the wonderful classrooms and hallways. The magnet themes add so much to their curriculum that it is exciting for my child to go to school everyday. Thanks Batesville Kindergarten Center teachers and staff for caring so much for our children.

I would like to say that the kindergarten center is excellant. My daughter has excelled there and there are great people. All the staff greet with smiles and take the extra minute to talk to a five year old. My child was very apprehensive about school and from day 1 Mrs Wilkerson, Peggy Williams and Vicki Graddy along with all other staff have been so terrific in making her feel welcome. I cannot believe that anyone would say uneducated things like the first reviewer said . I have always been treated with the upmost respect when I visit my child. This campus fosters our children and makes them feel welcome, happy and secure. I want to say i am proud that my child attends the batesville kindergarten center and I commend each and every one for a job well done! kudos!

I want to say a rebuttal to the first review i read. I think the kindergarten center is a wonderful learning environment. The principal would never drag anyone down the hall. Maybe this person has to much free time and a vivid imagination. The staff is excellant. I would not want a child in a school who allowed children and parents and others to feel insecure or would i want my child in a school were children are allowed to throw fits. It sounds like the last reviewer had sour grapes! kudos to the batesvile kindergarten center.

At time when the Batesville School District is providing such an enriched learning environment, I am ashamed that someone in our community would write such erroneous comments. If you have any doubts about what a great district and kindergarten center this is, just come and check it out for yourself. Not only does the Batesville District meet and exceed all state standards, they are also providing magnet schools for all children. Hopefully all my grandchildren will also be able to go through the Batesville Kindergarten Center.

I don't know what kind of uneducated person would write a review the way the previous reviewer did. The batesville kindergarten center has and always will provide a supurb education for each child that has the good fortune of gracing its doors. My children have always been treated with the upmost respect by both staff and administration. Each child is greeted by name by a school personnel each morning with a smile. My children find it a pleasure to attend school. After all this school provided the basic education for a school district that ranked seventh in the entire state overall. Hats off to the the batesville kindergaten center and hats off to a wonderful administration and staff!

This school doesn't train children, it damages them! The principal of this school drags children to class, makes children walk with their hands touching behind their backs, discourages parental invovlement, and runs the school like it was a Nazi training camp. BEWARE!!

The most common reasons we might not have this data are either that not enough students took the test or that the school was recently opened, and its scores have not yet been reported.
