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.
Excellent staff and teachers. Excellent programs. Well managed school. Friendly, respectful & nourishing environment.
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.
My 2 kids love this school...they never say, 'I don't want to go to school!'
I had my children in private school before moving them to this public school. I have never been happier! they give 120% to each and every child there!
Bessey Creek is a wonderful school with wonderful teachers and staff.
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!
You feel at home when you walk on the campus. The parents, teacher and staff all get along great.
Over the past 7 years my Children have attended Bessey Creek. I can't think of anything I would change. We love our school!
It's just the best school ever! Wonderful Teachers, Administrators, Students and Volunteers. My kids love it here and we couldn't ask for more.
Our School is wonderful because of all our wonderful Students, Teachers, and Volunteers!
My children love this school. They teach them to be responsible, productive, wonderful little people.
Bessey Creek truly believes in no child left behind. It is a small school feel with a big school ambition. We not only have great students but fantastic teachers and administrative staff.
Great school, super teachers. I have a friend that is a volunteer there as well as a sub teacher.
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.
Amazing place because of dedicated teachers and staff that care about kids. Conscious Discipline makes all the difference!
Private school atmosphere; character counts discipline; the principal is approachable and cares about each individual student- goes above and beyond; 'family' feel. Academically sound.
It is so peaceful. The staff and family do everything they can to make it the best place for our children!It has been an 'A' rated school since it opened! What else could you asks from a school?
