1st day of school, where they tell us to get the bus one never shows up. I call and they say the bus route changed 2 says before school. No call. Now sitting in car poll lane for 30 min. How is this fare to a 5 tear old wondering if mommy and daddy are showing up. Extremely disappointed

The school is average, there is a 5th grade teacher "Michele" who has no patience with the kids, and makes the classroom a negative environment. There are other teachers there that actually care about the students.

We moved away to Central Florida and miss Bessey Creek terrible. My son has some developmental delays but was in a mainstream classroom and had Mrs. Castellanos as a kindergarten teacher. She was phenomenal. Also the administration there is outstanding Alice Lemond (school psychologist), Ruby Amsden (ESE coordinator), and the rest of the Bessey Creek team are top notch. This school truly made a difference for my child and I wish everyone at Bessey Creek much success.

We have been on a roller coaster since attending BCE. The teachers can't seem to decide if my child is a problem or not. They are great at pointing out problems, but not so great at finding the solutions for children that are not 'typical'. I am considering other options. This school may be more concerned with their 'A' ratings than meeting individual needs.

We moved to Bessey Creek about 4 weeks ago and could not be happier! Everyone from the administration on down (yes, including the parents) have been friendly, kind and helpful. We moved after the start of the school year and they did everything they could to make my children's transition as smooth as possible. My children love this school!

It's such a great school. Character Counts is big at Bessey Creek Elementary and it really makes a difference in the students. They leave the school and enter middle school with an appreciation for good character. The school also has great teachers who really care about their students. There are so many extra curricular activities that the teachers get involved in as well as volunteers. The students seem to love coming to school and are sad to leave it.

Bessey has a terrific group of teachers and administrators. It's because of that, that parents get involved and the kids are happy. They have really good programs for the kids to participate in afterschool, like Chorus, Spanish and Science Club. They also provide afterschool care, the Extended Day Program which has very caring people and homework help. For a working mom, that's important.

So far, we have had a wonderful time here at BCE. I still believe that Spanish should be incorporated in all our public schools! FCATS should be re-evaluated...Too much stress on our teachers and children!

Selected in 2004 as one of the best character building schools in the US. Level of parent involvement is the highest I have ever seen.

Bessey Creek is a well thought out program for elementary education. The curriculum is challenging, the teachers are for the most part execellent,and the environment is a nice display of simple undisturbed bucolic life. The problem we've had is with the seeming disiplinary standards they have set up. Without getting into specifics, it would be nice to see actions taken when there are students who disobey the conduct code whithout any repercussions. I'm hopeful that there isn't politics involved, and when students misbehave in a totally unacceptable way, they are confronted and given the opportunity to change there ways or recieve the proper punishment.
