We have two children attending this school. Our kids love their teachers and they are excited to go to school every morning. That being said, we have two major concerns.
Our first concern is in regards to the front office staff and the janitor who is in charge of opening/closing the gates and parking. They are rude, condescending and unhelpful. They treat us as if we are a nuisance when we ask simple questions.
Our second and more important concern is that they do not offer any "full day" kindergarten classes. I have heard that other schools in CCSD offer full day options, but when we inquired about it we were just shoved off by the above mentioned staff. We pay taxes as we should. Why isn't it "in the budget" to offer full day kinder at the school that we are zoned for? I feel that this is a huge issue that needs to be addressed. My kids are being robbed of their most important year of school. Kindergarten is a fundamental part of a child's development and my kids only get half of it.
WE LOVE BOZARTH! As a parent of 3 kids, our family has been at Bozarth every year since they opened in 2009. 2 have since graduated, 1 is now in High School, 1 now in Middle school, and my youngest is still at Bozarth going into 3rd grade.
I am Humbled to have our children in Bozarth hands! I'll start with the fact that Bozarth has Fantastic teachers!! Teachers who go well beyond teaching. Teachers who genuinely care, work hard for their students, are brilliant & organized, and who take summer classes to get even better every year. Teachers who will be remembered as the years go by. There are no bad teachers at Bozarth either- every teacher is great! You never have to worry who's class you got in, cause they're all great teachers! This is RARE!
I'm Grateful to the Principal, Mr. Saunders who hand picks the phenomenal teachers!! He has got to be a top principal in Vegas!
The fun activity classes and clubs that are offered are awesome! Many of the teachers volunteer to stay late just to offer these after school clubs to our students, Science Kids, Board Game Club, Basketball, and I know there's many more! The front office staff who works long hours, and are so helpful! The school has been kept pristine thanks to the custodial crew. I for one have taken time to get involved at Bozarth in my free time, and I'm glad I did- the behind the scenes I've witnessed at Bozarth... Leaves me full of gratitude! The level of parent involvement is Fantastic, and makes the difference in our community. I wouldn't have my kids anywhere else.. I'm so grateful they've had the Bozarth experience!! If this is your kids school- Congrats!!
I wrote a review last year but it has vanished......your kid will just be a little face lost in a sea of other faces. They dont care. My son would cry beacuse he didnt want to go to school. His teacher would belittle him. The principal doesnt care. We moved.
There are many factors that are controlled at the district level, such as; transportation, class sizes (due to over population), and the Common Core. Therefore, I do not think it's fair to penalize an individual school for these issues. But, from experience, I know that the majority of Bozarth's staff is dedicated to the students, as well as the school's overall culture and environment. Before and after school activities, clubs, and sports are offered. Parental support is welcomed, they have a strong PTA, and teachers who are dedicated to teaching the curriculum. My children have been Aviators for 4 years, and I am very pleased with their education and overall experience.
Being new to LV, this was my first introduction to CCSD. We live .7 miles from the school, so no bus service but it's too far to let our kids walk. Driving students there every day is a ridiculous mess of traffic. The common core is terrible, indoctrination at its worst as with most public schools these days. Class sizes are ridiculously large, approaching 30 kids to one teacher. 6 hours from bell to bell, including lunch, specials, transit time, gives at most 3.5 hours for instruction per day not including time spent dealing with behavior issues. The school is extremely crowded, and hopefully re-zoning after this school year will alleviate that.
