Many of our Salem friends decided to move or put their kids into private schools. We decided for public, we wanted to support our community and see it grow. Our daughter is now going into 4th grade at Bates and she loves it. We love it. The teachers are fantastic and dedicated to each and every student. The principal is outside every morning greeting each student by name and engaging with parents. The staff and faculty make it a great and safe community that my wife and I were looking for.

Teacher effectiveness: Disagree

The teachers are ineffective because any classroom management and routines they try to implement are supported by some parents, but not all. Even worse, administration overrules teacher decisions at times when they want to hold misbehaving children accountable.
