My son attended this school 1st grade thru 3rd grade...my son's and my favorite teacher was Ms. Rubano (1st grade teacher). She was strict but yet so understanding and had patience with my son. As for Ms. Brace (2nd grade) and Ms. Stanley (3rd grade) so unprofessional, rude, and made me see teachers from a negative perspective. Ms. Stanley is beyond unprofessional and unethical. I am glad I withdrew my son from this school. My advice is for parents to try and get an interdistrict transfer to a better elementary school.

I am a working Mom and try very hard to remain involved in my kids' school. I see the school trying very hard and my children are excelling in their academics. When my kids need extra help, there are loving, patient teachers there to assist them. Of course, things aren't perfect, but instead of complaining, I would challenge parents to become involved and do what they can to assist the school, it's teachers, and most of all, the students.

All school face many problems. CA continues to take money away from schools. Most teachers at B.G. spend hundreds of their own $ buying materials for their students. With the rise in students numbers, limited supplies and no help, the teachers try to do the best they can for the students. Some people talked about lack of parent support, parents are always welcome at the school but many are unable to come and help. The teachers are caring, loving and often trying to find different ways to help their students. To say that the teachers do not care, shows that you have not spent time at the school or helping out and really see what is going on. Helping out in the classroom or other areas of the school will show you what the state of CA is doing to our schools.

the positive comments here, most have been posted by the principal, this school needs a lots of work and better teachers or teachers that still have passion for their work Parents are not involved, but that is expected because most of the moms work, but they could try a little bit harder. If I could, I will try to change my soon to other school.

The parents at this school don't seem to be very involved. A few of the teachers, the principal, and most of the office staff, go above and beyond to provide a positive educational experience for these students. The campus itself needs improvements, as do many CA schools, but I really feel the principal brings a great energy to this school and am glad my child attends.

I don't know what these people are talking about. This school is horrible. It is such a disappointment. The parents who are praising this school must not know any better. My 2 children have been to a private school and one other public school, and BG doesn't even compare. The office staff is so unfriendly to the children, the teachers seem very cold towards the children, w/ the exception of one(a 1st grade teacher), and though the principal does seem to make a great first impression, that quickly wears off.

I am disgusted with the academic ignorance in many of the children which obviously is due to lack of parental guidance and proper care. A lot of improvement needed! We will be looking for a better school for our child.

The teachers that my son has had in his first three years of school have been incredible, they are dedicated to the educational success of the children they serve. I have been impressed by the friendliness and support of the staff and the principal - whether the principal is opening the car door for my child in the morning in the rain or is greeting him by name - he genuinely appears to care about the kids. I would like to thank the teachers and principal for their hard work and commitment to their school, community and children.
