We have just started at Old Bonhomme, and compared to the school we just came from, this place is run like a prison. Children not in before/after care are not allowed to play on the playground before or after school, whereas at the last school we were at parents and caregivers would drop off/pick the children up and sit on the playground with them while they played together with the kids in after care. Parents really felt like they were a part of the school culture, which was really nice. I got to know lots of kids by hanging out on the playground with my child after school. Not here. On the first day of school all the parents and children had to wait outside until 8:30. The school administrators are behind high desks and a CLOSED door, and I feel badly every time I have to go into their office and bother them about something. I am puzzled because everyone said Old Bonhomme was a warm and friendly community, but it certainly doesn't feel that way. I have never heard of a school where the playground was closed to children not in after care before and after school. I don't understand.

We have triplets that have been through all four grades so we have had literally every teacher and worked closely with the administration for five years. They have been able to customize plans for each of the three children and communication is outstanding.

I have 2 boys- 4th grade and Kindergarten. Both love the school. The teachers by far majority take a keen interest in your kids learning and challenge them appropriately. Very diverse class mix.

Unfortunately this school has several problem children, and instead of dealing with these children ... others who get in their way are punished instead. The school is good, the teachers (for the most part) are good. However they do not know how to handle problem students and because of that good students get in trouble.

The diversity, parent involvment and district's priorities.

Old Bonhomme has a friendly, welcoming, and accepting atmosphere that makes both students and parents feel comfortable. Extra help is always encouraged and offered for students who need it, and presented in a very positive way. My favorite aspect of the school is the wealth of diverse cultures that make up the student body.

The school selects their teachers based on merit and based on their ability to instruct children properly. Children are selectively helped by their teachers continuously. They realize that different kids learn different ways.

As a former student and alumni of the district I was very disappointed to see that more teachers of color were not present in OBS this year. Ms. Toybes, Mrs. Roth and Mr. Hearn were all favorites for the last couple of years. Keep up the good work!
