es una escuela q se preocupa mucho por los alumnos pero les exigen demasiado en el aspecto del aprendizaje, mas con los chikitines de k nder y de primer ano, yo digo q no les deben exijir todo ala vez, como por ejemplo les ensenan la ABC y quieren q al mismo tiempo se ensenen a leer

This school only cares about test scores. It pushes kids to the point to breaking. Teachers try to make things fun but it doesn't really work. Principal is very rude. Dont send your kids here! They do not want parents in the building.

I have six children and have three currently enrolled in Balfour right now. My oldest is now in the 7th grade. He went to Balfour from Kindergarten through the fifth grade. His grades were excellent, and still are. My children have expressed how much they love the school and that there is not another school that they would even dream of attending. Overall, the teachers have been wonderful. But overall we are very satisified with the school and the teachers and we stand behind our school and its teachers so that our children will get the education that they deserve.

Balfour is a wonderful school. The teachers there are the best (especially the K-2 teachers)! The administration does a great job as well. The students are polite and well-mannered.

I have not had alot of great response with this school this year. I find that the main classroom teachers are out quite a bit. I have also noticed that after being out, they tend to try to cram a months worth of learning into one week. It is absolutely impossible. I believe that it is imperative that the teachers in this school, implement different types of learning methods for their students. We are living in a computer world now and we cannot teach all of our children like we did 10 years ago. Principal to parent response is not as thorough as it should be either. Come on guys, it's a new century. It's time to step up your learning game. My child's teachers aid is great! My child seems to do much better when the main teacher is out. What's really going on?

Balfour is a wonderful school with wonderful teachers. There needs to be more classes for children who have disabilities. The children should not be main streamed. It takes away from the children who dont have disablities and does not give children with disablities what they need. Both sets of children lose out and are not able to have whats best for them.

Balfour is a school with great potential, and many great teachers, but lacks leadership from the principal. As a result some excellent teachers are leaving positions.
