This is a great school, Mrs. Allen the principal is terrific, she reviews every single student's report card before they were sent home to the parents last year and wrote a small happy note on each one, she is always upbeat and positive and her energy is passed on to the other staff members and students. There are many teachers who have been at this school for quite a while which helps lend consistency to an ever-changing school population. The PTA is active and the school always appears clean and neat.

Excellent school with caring, dedicated staff. The new principal is involved and highly visible. The ladies in the office were super. They handle a lot of things at the same well. We had a great year and are looking forward to this next school year.

I lived on base for about 4yrs now and I never had a problem with the school system. I think that Bitz is a great school and have great teachers. Mys on went to JPS last year and it was great too. I went to both school many times and the staff in the office are friendly. I think that people who rated Bitz school before are the one with the attitude and they think that they gonna get better service base on rank but it doen't work that way. Get real people!!!! rank is just that "rank"

This school was very disappointing. I don't know if they are just trying to pass along these military kids or what, but I will have to do alot of work with my child to prepare her to go into 5th grade at a different school. Very little grammar was covered, and my child actually wrote better BEFORE going to this school! Felt like the curriculum was extremely dumbed down. The teacher was nice, but unorganized the entire year. For most issues they direct you to the Vice Principal, but don't bother because she never gets back to you and seems to work in slow motion. The school also seems to have quite a bullying problem. We had a bullying issue and have talked to several other moms who have also had problems. Though we live on base, we are going to send our child to a private school out in town next year rather than send her back to Bitz.

Its ok, nothing great. There are a handful of teachers that I would recommend. The office staff has an attitude and its been like that for years. Its like a chore for them to acknowledge you and do something. Thats my biggest complaint. Just get through it. Brewster is much better.

The teacher's have excellant credentials (most w/years of experience and masters in education). DoDEA seems to choose only the best for their schools. I would recommend taking a tour of Bitz and one out in town. You will SEE the difference in the ethos, teachers and quality. I noticed that the schools in Jacksonville did not seem to have as high expectations of the students. I also had a friend whose child is special needs, out in town they did little with him each day and had him watching movies a lot of the times! I know that on base the Special Ed team works vigorously with the children. Bitz is a great school!

We moved from out in town to base just for the school, my son made all A's in 3rd grade and was in the gifted program at his old school, he went to BITZ and not only did they not place him in the gifted program (when he is on a 9th grade level in math, reading and science) but he made c's and d's on his report card and was tanted and teased all year!!! When I talked to the teacher about him being picked on she called the students out infront of the class and asked them why his mom came in her and said they we calling him these names and listed them while the other kids laughed! I went to the principal and wanted to complain but I was told to leave my information and I would be contacted!!!! ARE YOU KIDDING ME!!!!

We could not be happier with Bitz. This is my child's first year here, and he has thrived. The administration is excellent and very involved with students and parents. The PTA is top notch. The teacher are pricelss and truly treasures.

We were very pleased with this school. The teachers are excellent and the new building is very nice. It was a great experience for both my kids.

The teachers can be exceptional with a master's degrees, decades of experience, and a high level of joy and professionalism in her work. I would recommend that parents interview with the gifted program before allowing their child to participate. We opted out. It seemed overly interested in test scores, rather than widening the exposure of bright students to more advanced and varied experiences.

Oops! We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Public and charter school test scores for most states come from the state Department of Education. The most common reasons we might not have this data are either that not enough students took the test or that the school was recently opened, and its scores have not yet been reported.

Oops! We currently do not have any student information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.
