My children have attended SB Butler for 5 years. We are very happy with the school. The teachers are fantastic and the administrators are as well. Butler provides a very nurturing environment for our kids with a good amount of individual attention when needed. Academically they are doing quite well. There is a great parent community as well with many PTO sponsored events. We have experienced nothing like the negative comments reflected in the old ratings here.

My child has attended SBB since third grade and is now in his final year there in fifth grade. I am very disappointed, not only with the teachers, lack of leadership from the principal, but the academic program is very weak. SBB offers no secondary language, and maybe has 1 maybe 2 computers in the classrooms. The science carriculum is very poor. I just don't see where the money is going to bring the school up to where it needs to be. Plus, I have never seen so many fundraisers in my life. I also feel that the teachers morale is low. Not happy with this school.

I feel sorry for the teachers with a principal that does not seem to give any drive to this school. My child has not done very well at this school from a grade A student to a child that doesn't care about school or enjoying going anymore, thank goodness for orchestra it give the children the drive they need. This school you would think would be great, But no don't bother go somewhere else.This schools lacks drive....

This academically ruined my children. My child had to stay back because of lack of education. The teachers are nasty and the aids are worst. Bullies are a huge problem. The have one of the worst reading programs in the state. I would not recommend this school to anyone who wishes their child get a good education.

My child been in this school for all of her elementry years. The school has great teachers who really care about what is going on with the childrens academics. I have been to several open houses and I only wish that school was like this when I grew up. The only downfalls are that the parking is a mess and the school needs to be brought into the 21st century as far as being able to acomodate the number of students there. School security seems a bit slacking as well. They should also make an effort to keep divorced and seperated parents informed of childrens education progress as well.

As a parent of SB Butler school, I think this school is average. It lacks a certain charisma that better schools have. Kids at this school are just a number. Kids do not get punished in this school, and bullies are always a problem.

I a fromer student at Butler and I wish I could still go there. In the past years, more playground equipment and extra curricular activities have been added. Aids are all around the building for extra help in classes or just around the school. The principal is very kind and respectful to all as with every one else at the school. It is a great school and is always open to improve its self.

Some of the volunteers/aides handle discipline fairly. Also, the music program is poorly funded. However, the teachers are friendly and aware of students needs, and several have special work for advanced students. There is also an adequate amount of quality playground equipment, some of which the V.P. let me pick out!
