they just push the ese kids thru the school system and don't take the time to teach them.Why is a 2nd grader in the class with other kids that are from kindergarten all the way up to 4th grade.How can the teacher really teach a child if she has so many from different grades.I so glad I pulled my child from the school and is home schooling him.

I went to this school as a child. I enjoyed it, but {it is who you are and who your family is}. My child has been here for her third year, and I'm looking for a new school. Her first two yrs were great with great teachers, but irrsponsible bus driver.This year were having problems with bully children, picking her up because she was not put on her bus properly, her grades are dropping, and overloaded in work at home. School is school and home is for family time. This school no longer lets you walk your child to class, participate in holiday parties or classroom activities, even parent/child lunches. this affects the children and parents, and my child was doing better before this horrible change! I would advise other options.

My child attended BES for 2 years and I was not pleased at all. They could not control there bully situation, they also are a school where it's about who you are and who you know. It's ridiculous, my child is in a new school this year and i love it. Consider all choices for BES...

Excellent school. Teaachers are concerned with the student's progress. Can't say enough in regards to the quality of care given by the staff towards students.

Bonifay Elementary has been a recommended school in the past, where parents were encouraged to participate in their child's education. A change in administration leaves us with a school that discourages parent input, lower FCAT scores, inadequate preparation for meeting the standards of FCAT. Teacher apathy in furthering their knowledge and upgrading skills. No longer a progressive school.

Bonifay Elementary School has been a most rewarding place for my children. Each of my four children has received individualized care and instruction from the faculty and staff. As a teacher and a parent I could not be more appreciative of the continuing educational plan that ensures a quality education for each student. No matter what the concern has been for each of my own children, they have sought out answers and worked personally with me to aid and accomodate the needs of each. It is an excellent beginning in choice making, knowledge, social development, and recognizing individual gifts. Thank you, BES, for your constant devotion as an educational facility and a loving home.

I am a parent of a ESE student in the fifth grade, my son has been bullied every day this school year and the current principle does nothing about this. I have spoke with other parents and they also are having the same problems. The children are having to monitor their peers during lunch time, the child that is the monitor that day will report to an adult. When the children learn that the kid has told on them for talking during lunch, the kids then curse and get physical with that student. The school does not have trained persons in the areas of Occupational or Speech therapies for my son with Autism. The school is making small efforts but continues to push me aside. They say that the parents are welcomed to come to volunteer but they make it unavailable to a parent like myself. If there are more parents concerned about these above issues please let our school know or go to the next school board meeting on March 22, 2004 at 6:00 p.m.

My son will be entering the third grade this year at Bonifay, and we have been very pleased, overall, with the education he has received. So far, the teacher involvement has been top notch, and that is very important to me. My only dislike about BES is that there is not anything available for the children to do after school. They are lacking in extra curricular activities.
