This is an okay school.I am currently in this school in 5th grade in this school the students call each other student cuss words in some classes there is a lot of drama and gossiping kids. some good things are that the teachers really care about the students if they are being bullied.

id like to start off saying that i was so excited to send my child to this school. I myself attended this school when i was in 3-5th grade! I always thought of it as a very nice and safe school. I was soo upset to send my child and find that soo many things have changed over the years as far as the staff there! Still lots of them there from when i attended but now as an adult i see how rude they are! (some) there are lots of nice and caring staff and teachers but i feel as if it seem theres more rude ones! You ask questions and they make you feel as if they have more important things to do, kind of just dismiss you! My childs teacher and her assitant are a nightmare!! If i am forced to pull him/her out of head start i will make this public and take it to school boards. very upset and soo disapointed. They are so rude and unprofessional! They dont even interact with the parent and make us feel comftable. Kids first time in school and they are just getting bad expierence. Soo sad about this. My child can e there crying and they just walk right pass him/her. Not liking this at all, thanks to them my child wont have a "head start". Disgusting!

despite all the things i am reading, and that my child is only in Kindergarten, we think it's pretty great so far. got lucky with his teacher, ms. manis; she's great!! just hope all the teachers are doing their jobs with love, not just "getting by". they definetely don't get paid enough!! we'll see, i guess. now i'm worried about the school!!

Both of my children have been going to this school for a few years now. There have been some ups and downs but overall I think this is a wonderful school. The teachers have went far beyond what they are required to help my son. His teacher this year even tutored him prively and drove him home from tutoring becuase I was not available at that time to. The rest of the school staff has also been more the wonderful to my children. They really have made their educational needs first. Last year I did have a problem with a teacher but it was quickly resolved after speaking with the principal.

Both my children have gone to Bing since they were 5 years old. This is a school where the children come first. Each child is encouraged to do their personal best without being labeled as the smart or dumb kids. The teachers are highly skilled and work hard to bring out the best in each child.

I was pretty disappointed with Bing as a whole, standards seemed pretty low and everyone seemed, if not okay with it, at least resigned to it. My children were unhappy there, discipline seemed to be a real problem.

This is my daughters first year at Bing and I can honestly say I am not impressed. Her teacher has no personality which was demonstrated at open house. I was also told at the beginning of the year that daily behavior reports would be sent they did after three weeks just to say what color change was made and a very vague discription of why. To ask a five year old she says she doesn't know and wasn't told. As of today still no weekly homework schedule. You have to go through all work to find homework and sometimes directions are very vague. My husband and I are divorced and he requested at open house to be informed of upcoming events, behavior problems, newsletters and such he even provided self addressed envelopes. It is now January and no response. Her teacher's aide though is great!

This school has made a big difference in my sons life. He has always has trouble in school with reading and it was obvious he had a learning disability. Finally we moved and he started going to E.L.Bing last school year. Within one school year they had tested him and found out what his disability is. He is now taken out of his normal classes for two hours a day to work with a special teacher. It has improved him so much. Also his teachers keep me posted on his progress all the time. They even call me at home to discuss his progress. Not only has this school improved my son but it has improved my life as well. It is nice to know he is now getting the proper education and I don't have to worry....

My experience with this school so far has been horrible. Open house was a disorganized horror. The teacher sent a letter home the first day of school telling parents how we were going to receive a daily behavior report and a homework calendar. The behavior report didn't start coming home until the 3rd week of school and does no tell you anything about their behavior or any instances and to date we have not received any homework calendar. There is no follow through with this school and it seems there is no bridge between home and school. I will be glad when my son transfers to another school when we move next month. This school is substandard and I think a C was being generous.
