The review from the parent who gave Big Flats 1 star is spot on.. They tried insinuating my 2nd grader needed to be seen because "he had too much energy" So when we took him in the Doctor said to disregard that teacher, she sends all the kids to be seen who dont walk on her dotted line. I got a letter sent home saying "today during story time he crawled around on the mat and this is unacceptable" Then they threatened to suspend him for violating the school zero tolerance policy by drawing a picture of his Lego men having a battle. Some of the teachers there are great, others get away with imposing their views on your kids.

My two kids had a great experience at Big Flats Elementary School. All of their teachers were caring and very attentive to their needs. I was so impressed with the teachers and staff that I was lucky enough to get a job there. This is my fourth year here and I love it!

I am so glad I moved to another state, away from NY, especially Big Flats elementary school. Teachers and other school staff except principal LOVE to jump into conclusions about kids. They tend to diagnose kids with ADD, ADHD, and all other kinds disorders. Hello, you are not a doctor to do that, you are a teacher. Very bad at teaching; lazy; love to shove kids in resource rooms, where they tend to make kids lazy and not using their brains properly. Do not send kids to schools in Chemung County. I was also substitute teacher through these schools and it is so sad to watch what these so called teachers are doing to kids. If kids are coming from families where parents are divorce or they just have difficult life situation teacher DO NOT care about those kids. My heart was breaking when I so that. I am so mad at lazy NY (Chemung) teachers. Once again I AM SO SO GLAD I DO NOT LIVE and my kids DO NOT go to NY school ANYMORE.

My son moved from Gardner road to Big flats elementary in 2007 in the third grade. He was definitely nervous, not knowing anyone there. But thanks to his wonderful teacher, Ms Williams. She did an outstanding job and he really liked her. Towards the end of the school year he said that he was saddened not to have Ms. williams as his next teacher. We 9the parents) have met with her and she is indeed amazing. I feel that any child passing through third grade should have Ms. williams as their teacher. She made every aspect of work enjoyable for the kids. Keep it up!!!!!
