Bathgate has amazing teachers and an incredible level of parent involvement. We have been there for 4 years and we love it!

We had two children attend Bathgate from 2005 - 2012 and we were very involved parents with our kid's school. We were so impressed with everything about it, as were the grandparents. The talents of the teachers uniquely presenting outside the box activities in the classroom, the additional programs the PTA supported for the kids, and the new technology the Foundation purchased for classrooms all added up to a wonderful community school that gave our children a terrific start! They LOVE school and their teachers - all of them. We were very fortunate. I've since returned to bring a sponsored curriculum program to this school along with others in the district - Bathgate will always be our beloved school! Be involved - it's better for everyone.

This school is suffering from poor leadership, and it is showing a trickle down effect to the teachers. you have teachers that forget their place and cross the line in to your home, trying to tell you what to do, how to do it, don't send juice in their lunch (it's a sugary drink not knowing they had milk for breakfast or you bargained with them that they could have juice for lunch etc etc)... shouting at new unwitting parents from their classroom door who park in the wrong place as if they are also children. Asking (optional of course) for money for presents for the teacher from the class Mom. (not sure this is legal in CA but I know it's not where I come from) ..... I think the positive postings that followed the negative posting in Aug 2011 were prompted by leadership/teachers.... or are the feelings of the minority. Don't think because you are moving into a nice area you are getting a perfect "Blue Ribbon" school. There are still 30+ students to 1 teacher...... I have 2 children at this school and next year will be 3 so I am looking for alternatives.... I would not recommend this school.

I have two children attending Bathgate and we are completely happy with this school. Excellent teachers, involved parent community, wonderful PTA, academics are top-rate. The principal is fabulous - a strong, caring leader who has made numerous improvements since her arrival 2 1/2 years ago. We would not want to be anywhere else!

Can't say enough wonderful things about Bathgate Elementary! It's our fourth year at the school, and we couldn't be happier. The teachers are fantastic. There is a great sense of community between the parent particiation, the PTA, and the fabulous staff. Our principal has done an incredible job since she joined us in 2009. Her dedication to our school/students is insurmountable.

One of the best elementary schools around. Despite the tremendous budget cuts, this school continues to excel. Bathgate thrives because of their excellent teachers, staff, PTA, and superb leadership of a dedicated, warm and caring Principal.

Both of my kids are attending Bathgate right now. They have strong academic programs as well as a great PTA. My son started kindergarten barely reading words, and he could read magic tree house with little help before he even started 1st grade. My daughter also learned a lot in the pre-k class. More than what they learned at the private schools before.

Please note the last positive reviews for this school were in 2008. BES used to be the ultimate and has fallen from grace. Poor leadership, teachers who should have been retired, no discipline for unruly students. A Principal with her own personal agenda....very disappointing.

I have had children at this school for 13 years, and have been extremely satisfied with the education and the environment. This school prides itself on a stable and happy staff, as well as an extremely active and supportive parent community/PTA.

Bathgate is an excellent school! I have one child who graduated from Bathgate and one still attending and both were excited to go to school everyday. The Principal and Teachers are incredible and very dedicated in helping each student achieve personal growth. The PTA and the parents involvement is exceptional. The kids are having fun learning and their continuous achievements are reflected every year in standardized test results. Bathgate is a Calif. Distinguished and National Blue Ribbon awarded school. I am very happy to have my children attend Bathgate.

My kids went to Bathgate when it first opened. Kurt Visca was the principal. My kids had a very positive and enriching experience.

This is an amazing school. The children love going to school here. The Teachers are top notch and care about what their children are learning. Music is based on funds. We have been able to raise enough in the past to cover this expense. Parental involvement is high. It is a great school. I wouldn't want my children to go anywhere else. Also, the principle is wonderful. All the kids love him. For a public school, your children will get a top notch education in a loving envioronment.

My daughter attends Kindergarten at Bathgate. She has blossomed from a shy toddler to an eay out-going six year old. My daughter adores her teacher and loves learning. It seems that all of the parents in my daughters class are somehow involved. I am grateful to have my daughter at such a wonderful school.

Bathgate is a wonderful school filled with caring teachers & a 'hands on' principal who is loved by all the students.

Bathgate is a large elementary school, where it has been a little difficult for our kids to feel at home. The teachers that the children have are friendly and competent. The basics are covered well, but there has not been much instruction or assistance when one of our children has needed help in certain areas. Overall, the school has a structured PTA that does a good job, and a nice young principal. It may be the 'south county attitude' from the parents that makes the school feel cold and competitive. Overall, the academics are sufficient.
