My daughter just started attending BES this year and was very nervous about starting a new school in the 5th grade but she loves it! The teachers are wonderful and the principal is great. I voluntered at the recent back to school party and was really amazed at how many parents were involved. Mostly how wonderful the teachers and principals where with the children you could really tell that BES staff really care about their students! Everyone had a blast!

This is a fabulous school. The class size allows for individual attention. The teachers and administration have a personal committment to each child. The school facility is bright and clean. The feeling inside the school is one of gentle control that is very effective. I am so pleased to have a child who is enthusiastic about going to school each day!

My daughter attended the school when she was in 4th and 5th grade. And my son attended the school from kindergarten through 5th grade. He loves the school and loves the faculty and staff. The school tends to each child s needs and the faculty and staff are awesome. The teachers are a unique group of people. It s not the school it self but the people inside that make the school what it is. I can not praise them enough from the teachers, office staff including the principle and vice principle, librarians to cafeteria staff and PTO members. So, if you are thinking about your child s education as well as being treated as an individual person this is the school to attend. I am glad we did.

This school is great! My child went to kindergarden last year & in the first week he was reading. Miss Shoemakes was his teacher & I could not have been more pleased. The school was always nice & clean. My son loved it. The school is dedicated only to early childhood. My daughter will be attending this year and I can't wait. My child has learned so much & had fun learning. Thank you so much. -Teneice McGill
