I have no problems with the administration at this school. With the recent addition of Jr Kindergarten, this school now provides 10 years worth of schooling in one location. Very compelling for those moving into the area. Two of my kids are enrolled here at the moment and we're staying in the school district until my third is enrolled here. Take a look at the CA API scores to get an idea of what the scores are really like. Greatschools is drastically out of date when it comes to reviewing this school.
Terrible Administration. Discrimination is abundant. I've heard too many stories of unfair discipline. The same story every time is where bullies don't get in trouble and the student defended his/herself gets suspended
I think butte vista is a wonderful school all the teacher are really lovely,, Also butte vista has a wonderful after school program all the employees in the after school programs are really wonderful,, they all help our kids,,
I feel that Butte Vista school has a very bad reputation in changing teachers every year. They really need to retain there staff in the upper grades for support of the children . The children in the upper grades need more ellectives. Class size is to big in the upper grades. The kids suffer from to many kids in one small area. This really needs attention. I am really concidering moving my children to another school , when they reach 6 th grade. I hope these changes happen the year 2010.
Best school in the district, lots of parent involvement (could always use more, of course), and parents have a lot of say in which teachers their children get. Lots of help for special ed and special needs students. Just wish there was more shade, but that's what happens with a new school with small trees.
this school was never planned right from the get go. It could be a great k-6 but a k-8 is way overcrowded and the chidren don't get enough electives. Classrooms are small for some of the science wing classes,not made for 35-40 kids per class!.we moved our child, so that they could get a better education.
