So proud to be a part of a school with such great teachers and community support...
This is your average traditional-style school that doesn't excel in any one area but isn't horrible in any particular aspect either. Most teachers are pretty provincial and the principal is a people pleaser who reacts to parental input rather than leading with any kind of expertise in educational philosophy or passionate vision for the school. Most policy decisions (even some questionable ones) are justified to parents as 'what's best for the children' but in truth the driving factor is almost always test scores. With 90% of BR kids coming from supportive, privileged, realitively well educated families this school should be spectacular with sparkling intellectual inquiry and creativity. Instead it just plods along being 'good.'
Fantastic teachers and an adminstration that gets the importance of the three Rs, while also teaching to the child
we have been here ever since this school opened it is a wonderful school
This school has a beautiful facility, incredibly involved parents, bright, capable students, and many dedicated teachers. Unfortunately, a handful of the teachers seem content to 'clock in' rather than engage or inspire the students. There is also a troubling tendency on the part of the administration to blame declining test scores on students who have 'choiced-in' rather than on lackluster teachers and poorly implemented programs.
