My sons first year at Bates was last year. Before he was at Forrest Elementary in Riverview. To be totally honest if feel the school has the right atmosphere but I really dont think it gave my child any challenges. What I mean by that it did go toward the year curriculum and achieved everything that school promised. Just no over achieving for the kids. Teachers are great and super nice.
I have four kids that have been through or are still in Bates. I have liked all of there teachers. My 9th grade son still goes to visit his former teachers several times a year.
Everyone there is wonderful! My son loves school, and it's all do to , his WONDERFUL TEACHER!!! I can't say enough wonderful things about his teacher He is learning so much. My husband and I are very pleased with Bates!!! This school encourages our children to be the best that they can in all they do, it's a very positive atmosphere; we we need to instill that in our children in school, at home, every chance that we can.
The children that I know who currently attend Bates have polite manners, and speak eloquently. I believe this is due to good teachers and parents.
The children receive a well rounded education including participation in charity, recycling, and community responsibility. The PTO supports the staff and children throughout the year!
Everyone there is wonderful! I love all the staff and so does my daughter! She learns so much and is excelling in everything!
My nephews are learning respect for people and this country for what it stands for.
My grandsons are doing just great. They're in 1st and 3rd grades and just love their teachers.
I'm very lucky to have my kids at Bates, Everyone knows everyone by name..I love our school!! The teachers, Mr. Elsey and Ms. Demaggio couldnt ask for better people teaching my children.
My neighbors go to school at Bate, and seem to enjoy learning there.
My nephews love it! I only hear great things about Bates school, especially about the Principal!
The teachers do a great job, they are great role models and show the students how important it is to be a caring citizen in the community.
The principal, teachers and staff do a great job and really care about our students!
My Granddaughter goes there and the teachers she has is just wonderful. As I visited the school Teachers, Principle, All great you with a smile. And my Granddaughters grades are outstanding. Good teaching.
I love Bates because they have the best faculty around. I know when I send my child to school they are well taken care of. The secretary takes care of all the medical problems that my child has, just like I would. On top of all that, they are getting a great education. Top notch school. Thanks you Bates staff for a job well done!
I can't imagine a better foundation for my children education than the one Bate's Elementary gave them. Bate's is not just a school...it's a family.
The teachers demonstrate that they are a TEAM. They are committed to the students beyond what is expected. The teachers are an inspiration.
