My kids have been students at Boston ES for 6 years and we LOVE it! The teachers/staff are phenomenal and truly love what they do. The administrators are the perfect combination of smart, caring, and professional. The school has a small town feel but maintains high standards. We LOVE our Boston Bears!

I love this school and the teachers. My oldest just moved on to the local middle school and I am not worried about whether or not he is ready. I know he is ready because he spent his first 6 years at Boston Elementary. The teachers are loving and are willing to go the extra mile to ensure that their students receive a top notch education. Go Bears!

I have been very impressed with the highly qualified and truly caring teaching staff! It is the teachers that make a school great! It's important to note, that Boston has undergone some very recent changes. Zoning modifications have greatly impacted the population, subsequently it is no longer a Title 1 school. Additionally, the administration has had some recent turnover. We have been very pleased with the smooth transition, as well as the high expectations shared for all students. Thank you Boston Elementary!

While I generally give this school high grades, I'm dismayed after reading some communications from my grandson's first grade teacher. One comment stated that my grandson should work to improve his "handwritting," while another said "if you want to request a conference, 'your' welcome to schedule one," and yet another referred to "alot" of progress. My grandson is doing very well in most areas, but I have to ask--shouldn't his teacher learn to spell before passing her bad habits along to him and her other students?

I went to Boston when I was a kid and now my own girls go. This school has decreased in greatness in the last couple years. One of my girls has a teacher who obviously is more interested in her new baby then taking time to help her children grow in her class. The other teacher for my other child is great. The front desk lady always answers the phone sounding depressed and suicidal which puts a damper on anyones mood who calls, im sure. They need some improving in their staff. ASP teacher is wonderful and is very stern on the rules of who picks the kids up. I love that.

Boston Elementary was such a disappointment after we moved from another Metro Atlanta county so our kids could go to what we thought was a good school system. I watched my daughter who loved learning go from a confident happy child to a girl who hated to talk about or go to school. The reason was evident in my first Parent-Teacher conference when the other classroom teacher threw her hands up in exasperation when talking about my child. There was not a behavioral issue, she was just shy and a little scared to be going to a school when her Pre-K was small. There are several other items but essentially we felt as if kids were treated like cattle. Any kids who did not immediately catch on were left behind and got to complete their work in the hallway. I am giving 2 stars because my child did have fun interacting with the other teachers however we did pull our child out of this school and went to a school that she is excelling in.

My daughter goes to this school and always comes home happy. She says that this is the best school and when she is in fifth grade(she is in first grade right now) she does not want to go to a different school. I I am glad that she is happy and anyone who goes to that school is going to love it! The pricipal is really nice,the teachers are really good(they teach really well and get along with the kids really well), I'm just so happy that my daughter is happy!

There are some great teachers at Boston who actually want to do above and beyond with are children and not just what is recommended. Unfortunatley there's not enough of them! I also think because this school has such a ethnic diveristy they have to spend alot of time with language barriers. This mostly applies in the younger grades. If I had a choice to put my child here again I would think otherwise.

This is a wonderful school. I have had three children attend and it is a pleasure knowing that they are receiving the skills needed to compete in the future from nurturing teachers.

Boston is an excellent school with caring and devoted teachers. It offers many different ways for a child to learn and grow outside of just regular classroom learning.

All 3 of my sons went through Boston. It is an awesome school. I wish that 5th and 6th grade had not be seperated from this school. My youngest son missed alot by being moved to the other school. Everyone teachers, admin, lunch staff, and the janitor Chris all rocked ! Kepp up the great work.

we moved from cobb county and my son was in a very unorganized charter school and unfortuntely missed out on learning much more than I could teach him an hour each night. BES was so proactive and supportive-he actually started learning and most importantly gained confidence in his abilities. I wish we would have moved sooner. The teachers and admin all have had our back since the beginning.

Ms. Whitworth is the best kindergarten teacher I've ever seen. I have 4 children, all taught by different teachers, and she is by far the best teacher any of my children has ever had!!

My child is in kindergarten at Boston and we've had a wonderful time so far. It is kind of like a little home town school where you wouldn't particularly expect to find one.

We are starting our second year at Boston and I have been very pleased up to this point. Everyone is very friendly and I am amazed constantly by the organization of the school. Everything always seems very well planned. Both teachers so far have been wonderful.

When I first moved to Georgia, my first school was Boston Elem. At first I was a little shy, but the friendly teachers and students helped me feel more comfortable. Boston is a good school, and I am glad I had the chance to attend there. My mom was involved with the PTA, and sometimes they werent the friendliest people, but they all were focused on parent involvement, which was good.

Whenever you walk in the front door, there is always a smile. The teachers are wonderful! I have one child in third grade and he loves Boston. I volunteer in the school and the PTA board members are the best. Everyone wants you to be involved in your childs education, and Boston's staff from the office staff to special education staff and teachers and most of all the partents. We all want the same thing for our children and everyone supports each other. Its a great school and the education is beyond many other schools. Thank you Boston!
