Great school and wonderful teachers. My 12 year old has just graduated here and is truly prepared for middle school.

This school district is run by the old principal of this school who ignores bullying and blames the child that's being picked on. They are known for doing whatever is necessary to push their political agenda no matter what it does to the students they are supposed to be protecting. Kids lives could be threatened by students and nothing is done to stop it! DO NOT put your kids lives at risk by allowing them to go to a school as bad as this one!

This school was excellent in the past, but it's definitely suffering as a result of the principle being changed. Mr. Kirk Burr is not a very pleasant man; he's very condescending and judgemental. Barely two years in the elementary school and he already has the same mentality as one. My biggest complaint about him is his policy on bullying - his stance seems to be that it's the victim who needs to be punished, or otherwise just ignored. And don't even try to talk to him, because he changes stories faster than a library. He's also got a bit of a tendency towards slander, as though he thinks his position somehow protects him from having to take anyone else into consideration. I really can't say anything good about him and I hope he gets replaced soon.

My kids have had the pleasure of attending the Berkeley School system almost their whole lives. (I moved my older one in from a God- awful Catholic school...Thank goodness I did!) Accompanying the daily curriculum, proper manners, social graces (bullies are NOT tolerated!) and lessons are taught consistently throughout and is evident in BTES's philosophy, a philosophy encouraged and enacted every single day they are in session. That philosophy includes respect and making good choices, reminded to the students EVERY morning during announcements. The principal knows each student by name and addresses each as such, more evidence that what they preach, they practice. BTES Teachers make it a point to be aware of each students strengths and weaknesses; to praise where it's warranted and support where they need it most, as well as encourage independence and responsibility as they take their next step(s) toward middle school. It's a wonderful foundation to give these kids what I'm sure most forget by the time they reach middle school. I will truly miss the air of support, encouragement and independent responsibility thrust upon our kids here at BTES.

I find this school to favor the 6th graders. It seems everything is for them, they get all the perks. They even get a trip to stokes forest for 3 days and because it is so expensive the 5th graders get no class trip at all. The people in the office can be very unprofessional, speaking badly about parents in front of students. They are also very unclear with student drop off they say don't drop off before 7:25 because there are no teachers present, and on another letter of policy they say if you drop off after 7:25 drop your child off at the office. Are the doors only open for 60 seconds???? Sometimes it is 7:24 and the doors are already shut and you have to go around and have your child marked late. Not many positive experiences.

The students are tought do just enough to get by, which is apparant with all 4 bayville elementary schools. Average time spent in classrooms is way than the schools in the area. Yes, it meets the state mandated but do we want our children to do just what it takes or do a little more? Some teachers are condesending, they need to encourage the children to do better whenever possible. The Principal is outstanding very responsive to the needs of the children and requests by the parents. Overall the children should be getting prepared for Middle school although they are treated more like elementary school children; they can't have it both ways. The school should have been an intermediate school to begin with; we have enough Elementary Schools. The high taxes we pay, are NOT for a quality education that's for sure.

My daughter just started this school in September. She loves her teachers and has made many new friends. Mr. Roselli has always been available when I have had any questions or concerns...he is the ONE adminstrator in the building you can go to with a problem.

My son is now this yr attending the school for 5th grade & I must say so far I am extremely pleased with the quality of his work, his teachers are wonderful, they have an excellent approach to teaching, they make themselves available to the students & parents for questions & extra help if needed, treat each child individually, and make learning exciting for the students! Parent involvement is good but not overbearing and more assistance is always welcomed.
