My son attended 5th grade and had the best teachers! The administration was always helpful and courteous. I wish we had been at this school from the start.

My son is in kindergarten at BPE. He has an awesome teacher and para! Everyone is very friendly and concerned about the students. For a first year school they are doing a fabulous job. Unfortunately, student enrollment is higher than anticipated so class size is at max and para positions are being reduced (county wide.) Love their positive behavior incentives for students and fun activities as rewards for good behavior. Couldn't ask for a better school for my son to begin his education!
