This school is understaffed especially if you have a child with any kind of special needs! I am pretty disgusted with the SPED department and the IEP's they write are ridiculous!

Balmer's after school program turns a good school into a superb school. Kids love it and they get extra learning too! They should market their program.

The school staff is wonderful. I would like to see an increase in homework and more communication with parents as to what the children are learning. Even though their classroom work is sent home, I am still not clear as to all subject material covered on a daily basis. A suggestion would be the teacher's sending home a classroom monthly news lettera as they do in the younger grades. This would benefit parents who work with their children at home. Thank you.
