I have never been more infuriated with a school's staff, in my life. My child has mild Autism and requires therapy... Well, for some reason she has yet to receive therapy of any kind (two months later). What's a Mom to do when you can't get into the school, to speak to anyone, unless you have an appointment, but nobody will call/email you back to make an appointment.. Nobody will speak to you, except the teacher, but she can't do anything about it.. It took me, her therapists, and teachers three years of hard work, to get my child on track and ready for school ON TIME.. But with the lack of help from this school's staff she's, already, behind.. My child's education is NOT a joking matter and I am sick to death with being treated disrespectfully every time I have an interaction with a staff member at this school. I have never felt defeated as a Mother, until my child started kindergarten, this year.. Never thought I would have to relocate, into another county, in order to feel comfortable with her going to school. SHAME ON YOU STAFF MEMBERS! I only gave the one star because of the teacher my Daughter has. She is a wonderful woman, and great teacher.

I have 4 children and they all go to bunnell. I believe it is a great school. The communication is great, and I'm glad my kids are so lucky to go there. I've never not liked a teacher that my kids have had. One teacher that really stood out to me was mrs. Lightsey. She is so wonderful.

My child started kindergarten at BES this year and he loves the school and his teacher! We have attended some events at the school and the parent turn-out was large at each gathering. It is great to see the teachers involved in events like the fundraiser at McDonalds too!

This is my daughter's third year in this school. She started in K and is now in the second grade. She has gotten some fantastic teachers and has done very well. I have never had a problem getting through to her teacher and receive replies within the same day. I have had no complaints and specifically chose this school for the well educated teaching staff. Her principle even reconized her on the weekend while we were out and about in the northern part of town and I felt like that was pretty incredible.

I have been very happy with my child's experience at this school. Overall, I find her teachers easy to communicate with. They have answered emails, notes or calls promptly. Even though the campus is large and there are roughly 1,000 students, I have met some terrific teachers who really like teaching and made their classrooms feel very "small-town". Becoming active in the PTO increases communication between parents & teachers. I think that because a considerable number of students come from families with low incomes, this school has gotten a bad wrap. Other parents have made comments to me about a lack of parental involvement. Well to that I say, the hearts of the teachers there make up for that which is missing.

It's a shame this school turned out to be such a disappointment. Poor leadership, serious safety issues and for every awesome teacher this school has, there is another that cancels the good one out. This county needs an intervention. We gave up and moved to another county.

As a grandparent raising my grandson this is my third generation of elementary schools. I have found BES to a wonderful school with caring and devoted teachers and staff. Also the guidance and encouragement to me as the Grandmother has been wonderful! The students are consistantly learning and meeting new challanges and given the resources to learn all they can in a caring environment.

For a school that consists of a large population of children from low-income families, Bunnell Elementary School is top notch. The teachers are attentative, the curriculum is engaging, and extra curricular activities in and outside the school day are awesome. How many Kindergarteners are learning Spanish? My daughter loves her education at this school, and so do I. There are plenty of opportunities for familiy involvement, and great strides are made to accomodate the working family. I just wish the school offered a general summer camp program, not that it has to or anything.
