Our student received individualized attention for his above grade level skills and still felt very much a part of his class. It is important for a student to progress at own level without feeling singled out. It is important to him to make friends and to learn together even if they sometimes do different work. That is the same in the adult world. We all have our work to do, and we can have different friends, and be friendly to all. Our experience at Bardmoor has been very good on this so far. Teachers cannot be effective unless the students are receptive. The Bardmoor teachers have created rich opportunities for student learning.
These are less important terms to us. We advocate enthusiasm, curiosity, optimism, cooperation, loyalty, dedication, justice, excellence, and generosity of spirit. Persistence and determination are reinforcement tools for achieving priorities within these kinds of objectives.
The teachers, admin, and other personnel are polite and respectful to each other, the students and to the parents. Example is a powerful teacher. We detect increasing maturity in the concept of respect in our child, learning that respect is earned trust, not blind obedience. Everyone needs to understand there are rules for different life situations, how to be a good follower, how to be a good leader. All of that plays into respect.
Welcoming enviornment. Open to both parents and students. Attentive to concerns. Positive conflict resolution demonstrated. Student has commented on kindness of staff toward students and incidents of kindness of students toward each other, including helpfulness when in need. Even thinking about holiday gift giving and thinking of others on their special days. We detect progress in emotional maturity.
Our student transferred in from out of state, nervous from bullying at previous school. Bardmore staff and students were welcoming and encouraging. Our student relaxed and was able to do his best. He made friends. He enjoyed his teacher and the other staff he met. His teacher was attentive and communication between school and home was frequent and supportive. He is above grade level and received instruction that maintained and added progress in math and verbal. Good social and life skills, knowledge and use of appropriate conduct in various contexts, interest and inquisativeness in diverse subject matter, understanding the vast array of good, productive options in life--these are examples of learning we look for above and beyond test scores. Our student progressed well in those areas and felt a sense of community at Bardmoor. He is eager to return this fall.
Worst school!!! The bullying happens inside the school, after care and nothing is done. The staff ignores it. Most of the kids that goes to the school are living with grandparents or someone that are not the parents...that says a lot. Advice: Enroll your child in another school or you will regret it
According to FCAT scores, Bardmoor performs below average. The administration and teachers are very cordial. Principal is getting the school in ship-shape. Not sure why the lower-than-they-should-be test scores. Probably parent non-involvement.
Could not wait to pull my kids out of this school. We heard such good things, believed the A rating and built a home down the block. Turns out my daughter kindergarden teacher was too impatient to work with kids and was very short with them, the bullying that went on in kindergarden and 1st grade was APPALLING. kids scream I hate you at each other and NOTHING IS DONE . the school plays totally ignorant - and the parents of the majority of the children are NOT INVOLVED at all . Most being raised by grandparents. Spare yourself and your children and find a better school .
