My daughter is in Mrs. Tonya Allen's class and she is absolutely WONDERFUL! My daughter has attended Pleasant Grove, Warrington, and Global Learning elementary schools and this school is BY FAR the best one here. She doesn't want to go to another school. I volunteer every Friday and her curriculum and classroom environment are AWESOME! Her principal and guidance counselor are always doing something to promote a positive learning environment. They have strong, important core values and a no bullying concept. They had a reading rally to promote AR, a really great bullying seminar for all kids AND their parents. PBS kids for Citizenship, K kids for gifted, and art and music are classes at this school. I can't say enough about how amazing this school is, what an honor it is to volunteer there and an even better that my child loves to learn here. WAY TO GO MRS. MONTGOMERY AND MR. SOUTHWORTH! And a special kudos to Mrs. T. Allen AND her daughter Reese Allen. PHENOMENAL TEACHERS AND STAFF! Thank you for all that you do for our children!

My son has been attending Blue Angels elementary since kindergarten. The school and staff are amazing! Education is outstanding! As a military family many people always say Hellen Caro is better, but to me and many other parents BAE is way better!!

Last year was my last year at Blue Angels Elementary...I was so sad about leaving!! Now I'm at Jim Bailey Middle. Lets just say I miss Blue Angels ALOT!!! There is plenty of play space :) they have tracks to run on, and I could actually stand their cafeteria food!! They have amazing teachers and I miss every one of them!! After F-Cat last year you could talk to people, and play for at least an hour or two after the F-Cat...This is a really safe school. You can't open a door without a teacher ID card, so if someone were to come, they would have no way to get in the school. They practice the drills for emergencies quite often. If your not in the classroom at 7:45 your late. 5th grade switches within 3 different classes; Science, Math, and Reading. And I do remember they had teams for 5th grade gold, red and NAVY. If I had a chance to visit I promise I would.

My daughter is in 1st grade at BAE and also attended for Kindergarten. I absolutely love the school as well as the teachers and the administration. I read one review that stated all K classes were in portables...that is not true. I believe there are 3 K classes in portables and my daughter was in a regular classroom last year. the school was a bit overcrowded last year but it is not as overcrowded this year (2013-2014). I believe that is because they had to stop allowing children in with the school choice program but I am not 100% on that. That just shows how great the school is because everyone wanted to get their kids in! We got in with school choice before my daughter started K and I am so happy we did. The school is top notch and we will be sad to leave next year. We are a military family and will be leaving in the middle of next school year. My daughter loves the school and her teachers.

Blue Angel Elementary is an absolutely fantastic school. I am a former teacher and I am very picky. We just completed our fourth year at Blue Angel and are sad to be moving. Absolutely top-notch teachers. Amazing gifted program. We love this school and it has been a wonderful place for my children to learn and grow.

Negative: physical aspects of the school - the school is overcrowded so all the Kindergarten classes are in trailers; there is not enough playground space, it's almost non-existant - if you drive by the school during lunch time you'll see loads of children playing in the bus ramp and grass in front of the school since there isn't enough space to play/excercise.; They scare parents with their report card system that starts out saying that if your child isn't making progress they will be held back, and they start kids out as failing right off the bat in grade K,expecting that on day 1 of grade K your child should have memorized their list of sight words (all 150 of them) when in fact most kids starting K can't read, just say numbers and recognize letters, and maybe a few words. Positives: teachers and leadership seem to be trying to improve the schools grades/test scores; the amount of schoolwork is the most I've encountered over three children in schools in 3 different states - K grade kids and 1st graders had homework every day that would take about 30-45 minutes to complete. This however makes for a lot of parental work with helping the child, but the end result is a better stude

My fourth grade son has only attended BAE for a few months. The school grounds is clean and well kept. The little amount of contact I have had with the staff has been pleasant enough. I don't know if all schools in Escambia County have an automated alert system that calls to let parents know about upcoming events but BAE does. It's very helpful. I also like the added security of electronic locks in the main building, but I wish something could be done to make the portable and detached buildings more secure (that is where my son is).

I have had one child attend Blue Angels Elementary from K - 5 grade and I am starting over again. I just placed my second child into K there and this is absolutely the best school available. They truly care about the children and the community. They promote personal growth as well as community involvement. They also make sure that the Military is well respected as many children here are from military families. I pray Mrs. Montgomery is there for the next six years. She is the "proud Principal" of Blue Angels.

My daughter attended Blue Angels for five years, and now my little one has entered kindergarten. I can't say enough wonderful things about this school. We love it! Sadly, we have to move, but we will never forget the awesome years spent here, where the teachers, staff, and leaders truly love the students and love teaching.

This was my son's first time in public school, I have to say Blue Angels is a excellent school. The staff is AWESOME and the Principal & Vice Principal are very involved. They are always willing to listen and do what it needed. I love Blue Angels Elementary and I'm looking forward to next year.

My daughter attended Blue Angel for kindergarten and had the best time. Her teacher was wonderful with each child. She got to know each child and took the time to help each one daily. The prgorams provided were top notch as well. This was a great experience for us!

Each year, I find more and more wonderful things about Blue Angels Elementary to say on here. My daughter has a serious medical condition and Blue Angels Staff are just great with her. For K, she had Mrs. Fetsko, for 1st, Mrs. Henderson and now that she is in 2nd, she has Mrs. Mohan. These 3 ladies have been monumental in my daughter's education and life in general. Her previous teachers still even have an active role in her schooling. When she is too sick to go to PE or recess, she is allowed to go and be a teacher's helper with Mrs. Fetsko and Mrs. Henderson. Lisa King in the office also allows her to come down to help with office work. Having Karen Montgomery as principal has been a blessing. I cant leave out Tracy & Judy in the clinic who take such good care of her. Lisa Heisterman

My Daughter went to this school From K to Grade 2. Her Kindergarten teacher was amazing, as was her First grade teacher. This school can be great, but I feel that a lot depends on the teacher.

Blue Angels Elementary as a facility is the best secured (fenced and gated )and finally after 2 yrs(Ivan) a new awning for the car riders . The amount of fundraising at this school is the most I have been involved with and can be a turn off. The AR program is wonderful and a couple of teachers have been great. My grandchildren(A Honor Roll) attend (2004-'07).

Kudos to Blue Angels Elementary School staff, students and parents for providing assistance to the Pass Christian school district earlier this year. This area in Mississippi was totally devastated by Hurricane Katrina. Donations of food and clothing were greatly appreciated by staff and students at DeLisle Elementary. Academic excellence continues to be the goal at Blue Angels Elementary even as we remember to model generosity of the human spirit. We remember clearly the kindess and support shown to the Pensacola community after Hurricane Ivan. Karen Montgomery

Good school but over-crowded. The volume of fund drives and 'extras' that need money is a turn off. Relatively new school. Community is getting too large for the capacity.

My son was having behavoir issues. His teacher and guidance counselor went out of their way to show my son how to be a better student. They handle him in a positive manner. They truly cared about him,focusing on all is good qualities, while teaching him to handle situation,making the right decisions. He loves the guidance counselor. Great school reading is stressed and the kids are held to a higher standard. Parent involvement is wonderful.

They have an excellent academic record for a public school. Parents are very involved and music, chorus, art and Reading Renaissance as well as Family Reading Nights and Accelerated Reader Programs. They have testing for Gifted & Talented as well as Special Needs. They have been an A school for the last 4yrs except 1 which they were a B school rating. I rate this school a 10!

Blue Angel is a good school,however not as good as it is portrayed to be. if your child has any learnig disabiltiy, and I do not mean just behavior, be careful follow up on all the meeting and paperwork. It took me several phone calls to Tallahassee to get the school board here to look into it and then for them to admit they made a mistake and get it straightened out. And no my child is not a behaviour problem she simply has a processing learning disability. They were really going to let her slip through the cracks. They were even giving her F's in her ese classes which is not permitted! Read your rights and responsibilty!
