My kids are in kindergarten in Bolton Academy and I could not ask for a better school or better teachers. Ms.Robinson and Ms.Price are great teachers. They keep you up to date on things and if your child needs extra help with something, they will let you know immediately. I really appreciate the principal, and teachers at BOLTON ACADEMY!

My daughter started Kindergarten this year at Bolton Academy (2008-2009) and the education has far exceeded my expectations. She has learned so much in the short time she has attended Bolton Academy. The teachers and staff seem excited to be there, which says a lot about the school. The children are very well behaved and friendly. My daughter loves the school and her teacher and looks forward to going to school each day. Please consider when you are evaluating this school that there is so much more to what makes a good school than overall test scores. We are very happy there and I feel my daughter is receiving a great education!

This is my daughters second year at Bolton Academy. She has learned more that I have ever imagined since her first day. I would recommend this school to everyone because of its dedication to outstantding achievement in academics. We are from another state and because of Bolton Academy we will never go back!!!!!!!!!!

I feel by far that this is the best elementary school that my daughters have attended and they have been in two other elementary schools since they started school
