I am sorely disappointed by the poor communication (or complete lack thereof) between teachers and parents. Most of the paperwork that does come home is filled with both grammatical and spelling errors. The high number of students in each classroom seems to be overwhelming the teachers. Parent involvement is only welcomed on a very limited scale and confidentiality doesn't seem to be much of a priority at all.

Horrible school they have a male teacher who makes children cry and cuss at them. Tons of children have been transferred out of his class and requested that their children were not placed in his class administrator just ignore the complaints on him

My oldest child started kindergarten the first year BMES opened, my twins are now in their last year at BMES so for 11 years I've been there too and I love it! My kids have received an excellent education and the school is like home to us. I will be so sad to leave all the teachers, PTO and school helpers that make that school great!

My experience with Black's Mill has been excellent!! I came from a private school and had concerns about public schools. I have not a worry now....All the teachers and staff are very friendly. You can tell that they really care about their students. I have to say my experience here far exceeds what I had in the past and also what I had anticipated. My children's teachers continue to challenge them to their full potential. My daughter's kindergarten teacher is AWESOME!! and my other daughters teacher recognizes my child abilies. I am very happy to be a part of this wonderful school.

I like that the teachers and staff know my children by name, know who their siblings are, who their father and I are, and that we all go together. No one is just a number.

We love Black's Mill. We have one daughter in 1st grade and another daughter that will be in Kindergarten this fall. We love the teachers, the principles, and all of the staff. All are very willing to help where ever they can. They care about the kids and as a parent, we couldn't ask for a better atmosphere. My oldest daughter loves it there. There are like family and we look foward to being a part of Black's Mill for the years to come.

Having dealt with Forsyth County - I can tell you Black Mills Elementary cares about the child. The child comes first -they have a name and are not a number. Teachers and faculty listen,a wonderful change from what we have had to deal with in the past. Everything about this school is wonderful - teachers, administration, curriculum and atmosphere!
