This is an amazing school from the teachers to the staff and principal and assistant principal. I feel that they truly care for the kids and it is evidenced by seeing how kids will come back to their teachers to say hello even AFTER leaving the school. PTA is awesome and is constantly helping keep costs down for field trips and events, parents participation is high because this is such a pleasant environment. The Principal is very involved, stops by the classrooms to read and interact with the kids, he writes a comment in every single report card! Mr. F -- you are awesome! We are leaving the school because we are moving out of the district, but we will still come back and visit. Mrs. Katsis, Mrs, Schlerf and Mrs. Gibbons ---you will never be forgotten. Thank you BRE for 4 amazing years!
Some of the teachers are biased toward children of color, as the first year my daughter received well below average grades from one teacher, but on her California State Tests that same year, she scored in the proficient range. The first day of school that same teacher asked her how she got into the school? This year she is receiving silver honor awards. I am now having issues this year with my other child. But we must deal with it, in order for them to receive a good education. Because, if it wasn't for the noted favoritism, the school would be fine.
Great School! Amazing staff! Amazing parents! Amazing Students! The best principal and and assistant principal!
Very Biased Teachers towards colored kids. Good school when it comes to education but the girls are always dressed up in fancy clothes and putting pressure on simple and studious kids and the teachers also support the kids who they know .
Butterfield Ranch is a terrific school. It has not been a year round school for several years now. The new principal is Rod Federwisch. We are so lucky to have Mr. Federwisch leading our school! Our PTA has always been very active and supportive. We have many awesome teachers. BRE is a school of choice so our student base is growing again. Students have an option to attend an after school STEM program this year. Having an onsite "Fun Club" (daycare) is a life saver for many working parents!
This school is great. My children are thriving here. The parents are all very involved and are approchable. The teachers love the students and the students love their teachers. Amongst my favorites are Ms. Wilder, Ms. Daley, Ms. Currie, Ms. Lacher, Ms. BC, Ms. White, Ms. Lacher and Ms. Voll. A lot of favorites, you say.....yep thats right, every teacher we have ever had has been a pleasure. The support staff (Brenda, Silvia and Michelle) and Mr. Hawkins, the principal are always there to help parents and knows most all of the students by name. And I just can't say enought about all of the hard work of the PTA---abosolutely tireless
Wonderful School! Parent involvement is what makes this school special. BRE offers music, gigi math program and so many other wonderful programs. The PTA does a great job of fundraising! Parents donate time and money, making this school stand out. The teachers really care about the students.
Excellent! Both my sons have attended BRE for their elementary education. All the teachers they have had take their teaching to heart. It can be seen through the relationships they have formed with my kids. All staff, including the principals are very involed and responsive to the children and parents needs and requests. Our family feels absolutely blessed to have attended BRE. All the teachers we've had have been great, but with Mrs. Schlerf- You've hit life's jackpot once you have her in your life. We will always love you Mrs. Schlerf!!
We love this school!! We can not say enough about the amazing teachers and staff. The parent involvement is off the charts. The community is warm and friendly, we feel very blessed to be apart of it! BRE is the best!
I've had both my children attend butterfield ranch and i love this school, the teachers are very involved with there students inside and outside of class, they have hight expectations of there teachers and students.They also offer programs for your children if they need speech,self esteem, and alot more. You always know how your child is doing and can always speak to the teachers with no problems..I love this school and my children do to.
Knowing that my child has not missed a class since first grade means this school is the best. I salute the teachers and volunteer parents for their contributions. The school program is great thru the leadership of Mr. Hawkins (principal). Go BRE!
The school is well established and focused on utilizing the full breadth of its teachers' abilities to provide an excellent educational environment for the children.
We lost our leader she was great, but we have a great group of teachers, they are awesome, and the parents of this school are awesome. My sons go here and I feel they are very fortunate to do so, p.s. I am a teacher
My 2nd grader loves going to school and loves her teachers!Fantastic school with excellent teachers. Academically I can't praise the school enough and there is an abundance of extracurricular activities. The PTA is great and there are many fund raisers to help provider great field trips and assemblies for the kids!
Excellent teachers at BRE. My son is more motivated to learn than ever because of the creative lab ideas our hardworking teachers create. I have observed how much they care and work with each and every student in their classes. Teachers keep excellent contact with parents, to include helpful info they submit through GradeAlert; that really helps. ~Mrs. Julie Sanchez
Butterfield Ranch elementary has a strong academic program. Parent involvement is quite significant and that is a strength. There ought to be a program and strategy to confront bullying and unsavory teasing before it gets out of hand.
We are going on our fourth year here at Butterfield, and we could not say enough great things about this school! We love the environment, parent participation, and every teacher that my daughter has had. We are very lucky!
I put my son in Kindgergarten at Butterfield this year because he needs speech therapy and he could only get it from the district if he goes to school as he is almost 5. I was not planning on putting him in until next year. I have been so pleasantly surprised to see the level of care and concern the teachers have for their students. The speech teacher called me on the first day of school to tell me how he did. This is a great beginning formy son.
