I have a student in kindergarten and a 5th grader here. Both love their teachers and are enjoying themselves at the school. My one complaint is that they do have a lot more homework than we did when we were students (ages ago) but that's a reflection of changing social morays rather than school policy. All together, I think Bonsall is a 10 school and highly recommend it.
My child's school is really Awesome! She loves her teachers and the staff. The teachers have it together and the music program is great too. We are lucky to have music in our school. Thank you to all that help make this school a great school.
Wonderful teachers who care greatly about the children in their class. Principal and VP do an awesome job. Bullying is not accepted and the principal and VP take care of it right away. Front office runs super smoothly and I feel my children are extremely save at this school. My kids thrive in their class and both are grate A students. PTA is wonderful and improved tremendous. So glad my children attend Bonsall Elementary School. Couldn't be happier.
Our child is smart off the charts. Teacher calling us at night to follow up. Day care staff is stellar. Office staff is nice and Principal is awesome. Nurse could use a little more focus, really do not need to hear about the negative aspects of the day every time I come in to attend to my child. PTA is horrible to no end. Halloween function ran out of tickets for game play within the first hour! Pancake breakfast runs out of Pancakes an hour before it is over! PTA is the only reason I do not leave 5 stars. School has amazing dynamics set for learning and always goes out of its way to boost the child both academically and physically. I spend many days a week with our child in class and see what a work load these teachers have as well as a lack of budget to support their needs. I find the hand full of teacher I have had the pleasure to work with always positive and reinforcing moral codes. Great school and great location with unfortunate parking design. Just get there early because no one else does! GO BEARS
Bonsall Elementary is an amazing school. Our daughter started Kindergarten this year and absolultely loves it. All of the teachers and other parents are extremely friendly and welcoming.
We are so lucky to have an incredible school like Bonsall Elementary in our community. I love everything about the school, from the teachers, the staff, the parent involvement, the PTA and the students. Bonsall Elementary is only 3 years old, which is absolutely wonderful that our kids get to attend a new, clean and extremely safe school. In addition, the after school care is top notch and affordable. My kids are so happy here-and so am I!
First of all we have a TOP Notch staff! Our teachers CARE about our kids, their education, our school and our community! Our school prides itself on kids with great character and respect for others. We want more for our kids at Bonsall! The parents are AWESOME and volunteer their time to make our school a HAPPY, FUN and SAFE place to learn! Go Bonsall Bears!
Bonsall is a great school! We are very lucky to have people who really care about the kids...from the educators to the parents!
Although it is a beautiful, new campus, the staff at this school seem to lack both heart and motivation for encouraging students. There is a rush to complete work and an unhealthy focus on scoring high on tests, rather than a depth of understanding. With little to no art, and no music program that we have seen, there seems to be a void in creativity. As for communication from classroom or admin. to parent, it is minimal, at best. We have had our children in lower rated schools, and they received more attention and there was better communication. Also agree with other reviews about the borderline office staff, who generally treat the parent in a condescending manner. Yes, traffic is a nightmare, but as suggested, get there early to avoid the long lines. Good luck, because as a parent, you will have to do much instruction for your child to ensure
The teachers are excellent. My children are learning so much each day. Along w/ academics, they're also learning to respect others which I appreciate.
The school has teachers and parents that are devoted to the success of the students.
The teachers are very proactive and caring regarding my childs education
I feel our school has the best teachers & staff and the children are learning sooooo much!
I love Bonsall Elementary School for many reasons. It is a newly rebuilt campus and is beautiful. There are some amazing teachers there who I count as friends. There is a very active and involved Education Foundation and PTA creating great programs that make a difference in our children's lives. We also have a wonderful superintendent and business manager.
Great teachers! Well run. Brand new campus. High test scores. Good behavior with the Character Counts system set up.
The teachers really take an interest in the children and work hard on a daily basis to provide the best and most comprehensive education possible. The administration is diligent with finding solutions in difficult economic times and is constantly thinking outside the box for Bonsall Elementary. We have a great school and our kids are happy!!!
The teachers are caring and the parents are very pro-active. Great administrators as well. Beautiful campus.
Best teachers, great kids, pro-active parents, dedicated volunteers, awesome PTA and Bonsall Foundation. Hard working administration and superintendent. I dare you to find another elementary school that can compare!
I love Bonsall Elementary for so many reasons. We are a small town school with such diversity and focus on education. Our teachers are a family and they continue to grow and learn so that our children can do the same! Our staff provides our children with the best education and no child goes without! We have great parent support in the classrooms as well as at every event we have! Our teachers and parents work well together to provide our children with everything they need! I cannot say how much Bonsall has done for our family and all the families in our community! Our teachers take the time to 'notice' our children and work with them in a very specific way! They always meet the needs both educationally and personally , of all our children. We have a great PTA, great Foundation, and one of the best Districts around. Our entire school community works together to ensure the best we can ! We love our school and if you ask any child there, they would say the same!
I love the close knit community that supports our school and how well our school listens to our needs.
