My school is an amazing school. I'm not just saying this because of the money. In fact I will just forget the money and tell you how awesome BFES is. My school is amazing because when I walked into Breckinridge I was terrified but off the bat, I knew I was going to be welcomed like the president when he walks into his house. That is exactly what happened too. I was greeted, offered something to eat, and then shown around the whole school. My school is also extraordinary. Why? Because we like to do things like frogs, power hour, principal wall of fame, etc. We do everything different you wont walk out of BFES with out a smile on your face and the edge to say I can't wait to visit again. I love all the celebrations we have. Such as spring fling, fall festival, winter wonderland G.S, art gallery, and 5th grade F.T. Really I'm afraid to graduate this year just because of the greatness at this school. I love this school so much I am volunteering to help here in the summer and when school starts back up.

My child is a new transfer to BFES and we are very impressed. We feel that there is good, responsive disciple that is balanced with letting the child's personality develop and be expressed as appropriate during the day. Individuality and uniqueness is valued! The teachers and administration are caring and nurturing; they are available and approachable to talk about your child through various avenues. My child is growing academically by leaps and bounds already! My only complaint would be that the PTA is not as visible and vocal as I would expect. I'm very pleased with our new school placement and can't wait to see what the next few years bring!

I love BFE! It is a great place to work. The students and staff are proud of their school and it shows. We have been nationally recognized for our efforts to create a 'Care for Kids' environment. Here is the article about our school. http://www.edutopia.org/louisville-sel-social-emotional-learning

Not impressed with the overall lack of organization. There is almost no parent involvement, even through the PTA (I was told when I asked that 'only the board goes' to PTA meetings). My child is board and unchallenged, even in first grade. Getting him out as fast as I can, which isn't easy since the county runs the entire system and makes your childs education decisions for you. They say there is a choice, but we didn't receive any of ours.

I am very pleased with the education my son is receiving at BFE. Academically, he is making tremendous progress, but the staff is also concerned with him as an individual with strength to build on as well as challenges to overcome. They go out of their way to assess his knowledge and challenge him based on that information.

The staff truly cares about the students and their progress. Staff is always available for parents and the community. The principal is both knowledgeable and caring. She goes above and beyond her job everyday. She continues to have this school achieve year in and year out. The staff will not let students fail themselves!
