There is a very cold feel, some of the staff needs to retire. They seem to want these perfect kids. They would rather just label a student a behavioral issue instead of recognizing a diagnosis. Was not impressed with this school at all. I feel Longmeadow schools are over rated. They are decent, but far from exceptional.

Effective school leaders: Strongly disagree


- a
The principal always backs her staff. It seems like she doesn't want to be bothered hearing parents concerns. She will meet and listen, but don't expect to see changes.


Develops character: Strongly disagree


- a
They do not encourage any of the above. They could care less if kids are mistreating others. I have worked in other districts and there is such a difference in children socially.

Teacher effectiveness: Disagree


- a
Very few teachers really acted as if they want to be there. They will contact you for the slightest thing, however when you contact them many don't even respond.

Amount of homework: Neutral


- a
They focus too much on Math. I feel homework should be a little of everything.


Teacher effectiveness: Disagree

My child has attended for 3 years and only one teacher had a caring, positive, hard working attitude. The rest acted as though they were counting the hours left in the work day, and those same teachers were not interested in any PTO help, unless it was at lunch time!

Develops character: Strongly disagree


- a
The Principal never validates parent concerns: Some of the teachers have terrible negative attitudes toward the children and parents: A child stole out of several kids lockers and Principal chose to ignore it.

Our children attended Blueberry Hill at one time. They are now at another school that is meeting their needs much better. As a SAHM, I wanted to be involved in my children's education, and parental involvement at Blueberry was not welcomed in most of my children's classrooms. I found the curriculum to be stale and innovation to be lacking. Time management seemed to be handled poorly; almost daily my children came home with stacks of drawings from "free time." At their current school, the children spend time performing plays for the whole school, taking part in projects to benefit the entire school (one classroom is opening a school store, another organizing a school compost pile) and these activities did not happen at Blueberry Hill. It was very hard listening to friends in other districts talk about the exciting and interesting things that their children were doing when I could not add to the conversation. I believe that the resources are there and that there are numerous parents at Blueberry who want to be involved with day to day learning. Something needs to change to make this school as affective as it could be.

This school is pathetic for the town it is in! The principal doesn't care, I agree with poster 11/20/11, no warm and fuzzy anybody at this place. I pulled my kids out and went private, much more positive environment and teachers. There a few teacher at BHES that shouldn't be there. I know a lot of people come into this school excited and hoping for great things only to be disappointed and remove their kids. Poster 3/9/10, I am sure these were NOT the trouble makers, the trouble makers never leave becuase the principal doesn't do anything to stop it. Many NICE family's and kids leave for a better environment.

Blueberry is a pretty good school. There is not the warm fuzzy atmosphere that I would like in an elementary school. Some of the teachers are very good and care. However, the population of parents (and some teachers!) tend to be think they are above the rest and deserve to get whatever they want. I moved and went to another part of town!
