I have had nothing but great experiences with Balmoral Elementary!I love it and my kids love it...Some parents might have some issues,but i will tell you one thing the parents that complain are the same parents that are sitting at home and not doing anything to change their complaints...So if you want to change something,try calling and asking :what can I do to change the school for the better ,because if your not part of the solution, then you are part of the problem!!!!!!
This school is a diamond in the rough of a poor-decsion-making district. The Principle does the absolute best he can with what he has and walks those hallways every day with words of encouragement for students. The Vice Principle is his right-hand woman and together they make a great team. The teachers are mostly wonderful and my children have no complaints about the ones they've had. In the past 3 years there have been a couple of teachers, not so great, and they no longer work for the school. The academics could definately be more challenging for the kids who excel and need more stimulation. As a parent who was involved with PTO, I must say the downside is the lack of parent involvement; it's disheartening to always be doing the work of what should be various and many adults and caretakers.
