This is my elementary school and I am in the 9th grade. This school is so respectful and is doing so many wonderful things. Yes, it has it's ups and downs, but every school has them. But BCE is the best! And will always be....

This is a National Blue Ribbon school that has reached AYP over 7 consecutive years. They are doing something right. All of my children attended there. It is also a safe environment.

This school is very unorganized and needs to better communicate with staff members. The principal is noncaring and doesn't have the time to address parents with concerns. If it wasn't for some very outstanding teachers then I would took my two kids out of this school!
