The staff, from the principal, to the teachers, to the secretaries, are so welcoming and friendly. The kids are great as well. And it doesn't take much digging to find this school is a Blue Ribbon School for the U.S., and consistently performs well on state assessments! I don't think you can ask for much more from a school! If the taxpayers are smart, they will continue to support this school and district.

The best school for my children. I was tied up in talkiing about the school on the last rating I forgot to rate it! It was nominated for the Blue Ribbon award (Washington D.C.). The only school in Western New York to be nominated and one of 19 in New York State. Testing results are at the top and the staff, teachers, pincipal & parents are very dedicated.

WOW is all I can say. My son has been at Big Tree since 1st grade. The staff is VERY hands on. You will find the Principal out at the buses everyday talking to the kids. The teachers are amazing, Mr Phillips is probably the most dedicated, enthusiastic and amazing teacher we have ever encountered. AAA++

This elementary school is fantastic!! I wish school was like this when I was a kid. The Faculty and Staff are to be commended for the outstanding job they do with our kids. The entire school has such a positive environment,which also reflects on the students and parents- who are greatly involved in their childrens education. I am very pleased with this district and highly recommend it to anyone looking to move into the community.
