This school is fantastic. The staff has so much heart for their students. I have been nothing short of amazed with how well they connect with my son and encourage him to want to learn. They have great scores in the state ISTEP. The PTO is wonderful about offering a variety of free activities for families to participate in. I have nothing bad to say about BHES.

This school seems to be experimental in that some part of the curriculums, technology, leadership, and teaching staff seem to be changing on a yearly basis for the past six years. At least some parts of the school adopted a new math program one year and decided in that same year to discontinue using it. Also, there have been three principals in the past three years. I have had children as students in this building for fifteen of the past seventeen years and currently have students in the building. I have never been able to speak directly with the principal for any matter the school or I may have thought important. The school says it wants parents to participate in children's education and to partner with the school, but I don't see this as a philosophy actively practiced. When I enter the building through the main office, the office staff does not usually act pleasant; they may even ignore me. I have only once before complained about any school personnel, and then I had been asked to give my opinion. The staff, as I see it, seems less and less concerned about students.

The teachers seem to work well with students. There seems to have been a drop in having fun while learning due to state standards. There is no downtime at all during the year due to these standards. Overall, I am very pleased with the school system. Most of all, their 'ROCKET MATH' program is a wonderful idea. It starts in first grade and progresses as the children get older. There are many options for the kids for after school activities.
