My son was only in the school for a year and the lack of care for the students was all too noticeable. I had nothing but problems from the teachers and principle. Non of my written or verbal concerns where addressed in fact yhey where ignore and I was avoided. Unless your willing to pay your way the school lacks regard.

Love the school for the most part , EXCEPT for the new principal mr. Sparrow. I will however not get into that. And the lunch. My child and another child I know have gotten sick from the lunch there, More than once. So now he takes his lunch. Bullying also has been an issue and they don't address it , and when they do, it's deffinately not handled properly. However my son is only a 1st grader. Mrs. Renville Is an AMAZING teacher! !! she's very hands on, and works alot with one on one. And takes into account when testing ,if they learn better verbally or written.

Batterman elementary is one of the best schools in Clark County. The staff is excellent and friendly. I was a substitute at many other school in CCSD so far I see that Batterman is on of the top we have. Most of the teachers are motivated and challenge our children. Our children's education doesn't just come from our schools, it's comes from parent involvement too.

Its a wonderful school!! The teachers try their best to educate students. They try to make it fun so the students will not get bored. This school is truly one of a kind! I cant imagine what it would be like if i went to another school. They try to improve their teaching skills to make it better for the students. I really recommend this school.

I went to this school the year it opened when I was in first grade all the way through fifth grade. I only had one bad teacher throughout my time at Batterman and I was assured that she was fired after the first year (thank God). After visiting a few times to pick up my little brother, very few of the teachers have left the school since I left for middle school. That means they will probably be taught better after figuring out ways they could improve their teaching skills every year. Although I did hate one teacher the whole time I now realize that she was doing her job and doing her best to teach us. Some of the teachers even remember me still. Some things may have changed, but I recommend this school.

My son just finished kindergarden at Batterman. I have no complaints whatsoever. The teachers are great (Mrs. Hanly, in particular) and are even better at using resources they have due to budget cuts. Remember, parents need to be a partner in their children's education in order for their children to succeed!!!

Batterman is a wonderful school! I am surprised by these reviews from disgruntled parents. Remember, there are two-sides to every story and the negative reviews here are only one-sided. The front office staff is the friendliest and most caring staff around. The teachers at Batterman are also smart, caring, and enthusiastic. The principal is one of the most visible and supportive principals I have encountered. She is always present and available for phone calls/conferences. The teachers are all great! There are many teachers who collaborate with others and their students all work in projects together. Yes, there have been parents who do not say thank you when I have held the door, or did not say good morning when I see them on the playground or in the parking lot, but that is true of most citizens of Las Vegas. I would not judge an entire school based on the unfriendly behavior of a few. Above all, this praise is nothing in comparison to the fact that Batterman has made AYP every single year since they opened; many surrounding schools do not hold that prestigious honor. Obviously, Batterman is doing something right if the students keep progressing year after year!

My daughter started Kinder this year and we signed her up for the all-day program. Overall, she has learned a lot and seems adequately interested in the material. I am however a little disappointed with the class structure. My daughter has been disciplined for her chattiness, and as her mom, I can relate to that, but I think much of her distraction is because she is not engaged in the classroom. I've expressed my concerns to her teacher in hopes of resolving the issue, but received no constructive plan on how to change the behavior. My husband and I met with the Principal and Asst Principal to introduce ourselves and talk about our daughter's personality and style of learning in hopes of pairing her with the right teacher. I felt they were very supportive of us coming in to talk and I look forward to next year.

After watching my grandchild do some classwork with instructions from the teacher, I now understand why the students were having difficulty comprehending the teacher's request to do the work. Listening to the explanation of the work was all over the place. Just observing the kids' faces when it was explained and the unacceptable attitude about having to explain the work had me believe that person is a 'textbook' teacher with very little room for creativity and very robotic. It appeared as if the teacher was the only one in the class and practicing these teaching skills which were very dull and lifeless. Too bad some of our kids are just pushed through school with very little teaching, to meet the criteria of the school's quota. On a good note, I observed another class where the teacher got 'her hands dirty' teaching her students. The kids were having fun while learning! Kudos!

I am very proud to say that I have taught at Kathy L. Batterman ES since the day we opened our doors and I am pleased to read the positive remarks that parents have written! In today's world teaching can be a very scary and difficult job, but with the supportive parents and staff that we have at our school it makes all of the difference in the world. There may be times when the principal is not in her office, but that is what is wonderful about our school- our principal is in the classrooms where she ought to be; she is getting to know the students of the school. We credit ourselves for giving our students the knowledge of self discovery and hands on learning. This is evident, because our students like coming to school. Thank you to our community for all that you do, Mrs. Dawn Villafuerte

I too am glad that my son is no longer at this school. He was only at the school for a short time before we decided to take him out. An uncaring and unknowledgable staff made it an emotionally unsafe environment for him. We frequently breathe a sigh of relief that we are in a new school.

I am so glad that my son and daughter are no longer at this school. They were rezoned for another school in the area. The 4 months that they were at the school there was fights that were hidden from the reports. And I could never talk to the principal because she was always out of the office. My daughter had a great teacher but I had to request that my son be moved to another class due to bullying that was not corrected until I went to the school board.

I consider this school to be one of the better schools in the CCSD. I was a bit apprehensive about my daughter attending, (especially since it is a 12 month school), but it has been a great experience for our family. My daughter loves to go to school, and has a lot of school pride. Compared to last year, her grades at this school are 100 percent better. The entire staff is very helpful and friendly. I couldn't ask for a better public school!
