If you have a child with learning disabilities or below average learning the school is very difficult to offer assistance or help. The resource team just wants to do the least possible work. I would suggest you stay on top of your child's progress.
Bain has been a great experience for us so far. Great leadership, committed teachers and wonderful parents who truly want the best for all the kids, not just their own. Discipline is handled swiftly and fairly and the academic standards are high. My kids' teachers have taught them well and nurtured their individuality while expecting the best from them.
Bain Elementary School. Great Second Grade Team. Very attentive Teachers. Want very much for their students to succeed.
I have 2 sons at Bain. The teachers are wonderful! My children have progressed rapidly. The teachers have high expectations of all students and can differentiate instruction when students need extra help. There is a lot of parent volunteerism and fund raising efforts.
Bain is a great school if your child is an above average student. If your child needs any help at all, that's when it becomes challenging. The teachers are so focused on testing that I'm not sure how much actual teaching is going on. This is a consistent problem in the public schools. Of course, the teacher that your child has from year to year also makes a difference. My daughter's 3rd grade teacher, Mrs. Dalesandro was the best teacher she had at Bain. Mrs. D was able to quickly recognize when a child needed help and immediately sought ways to help that child. She was also a GREAT communicator as is my daughter's 5th grade teacher, Mrs. Pancia. Overall, I think Bain is a good school. I just wish the public school system recognized that not all children learn the same way and that shouldn't limit their trajectory.
My daughter is been in Bain for 3 yrs now. We love Bain. The teacher are very helpful and the communication is always open between my daughter teacher and me. The school really focus on the children.
we were parents at the local charter school for 2+ years until we went to bain. bain has made an amazing difference in our son. his confidence has grown tremendously and if i'd known this would have helped my son so much, i would not have agonized over the change. it is easier to get my son up to go to school for the 7:15 start time than it was for the 8:15 start time for the charter school and i know it was because of his stress level and not wanting to go to school. now he is excited and loves school, and it was in our backyard the whole time. i love, love, love bain and what it has done for our whole family!
It all depends on the child's teacher for each grade level. Some a very nice and love what they do and others should LEAVE. Teaching children is a HUGE responsibility and as parents we entrust our child is getting the best education given in the public school system. Meck. schools have a long way to go before parents believe their child is getting a good education but a teacher can make a BIG difference. Children can tell whether or not a teacher is a good teacher. You can't fool them. I only hope that every teacher there realizes what a difference they can make in a child's life by either teaching with their heart and devotion or just plain teaching. There is a difference and I would only hope that the teachers there would want to go down in history as one a child's BEST TEACHERS EVER!!
Bain is terrific school where the entire learning experience is centered around the child.
I have 2 children that go to Bain and the teachers do see that they get all they can from all areas. If it reading help or math. The PTA is very proactive and we love all our kids.
Teachers at Bain are outstanding+. My child is attending her 2nd year there and the principle is having issues with parents. Also concerned with the cleanliness of the school. Alot of kids have been sick.
I am a parent of a 5 yr old kindergarden student and am very pleased with the education she is getting. I am absolutley amazed at how far she has come so quick.( not that i didn't think she could do it) I just think she has a wonderful teacher Mrs Kane, and don't think there is a better elementary school in the cms system. My daughter is 3rd generation to go this school. We have all had pleasant memories and look forward to making more happy ones.
I went through the Choice Application process to get my son in Bain 6 years ago because of the research I had done to find the best school. He is currently a fifth grader. I would not send him to any other school. Bain is dedicated to preparing its students for Middle School. The committment I've seen from outsanding teachers (Ms. Ryalls, Ms.Spilde, Ms. Maes specifically) has been so beneficial for my son's success in school as a diagnosed child with inattentive ADHD. Wonderful school.
What a WONDERFUL school!!! I've been a Bain parent for 10 years and wouldn't send my kids anywhere else. Teachers, asst teachers, principal, cafeteria & janitorial staff . . . all go above & beyond each and every day! High expectations, respect, & accountability are demanded from staff & students. PTSA is always there to help out. Great parental involvement. Music & art teachers are fantastic. Add'l activities are added every year. Enrollment has increased tremendously in the last few years, but the staff has not lost its ability to reach out & touch every family.
Bain is a great school. Each teacher we have had over the last 3 years have been terrific. The Principal is tremendous.
My son is in kindergarten at Bain right now (4-11-05). We've been phenomenally please with the school in general and his teacher in particularly. We hope the new principal can maintain Bain's excellent atmosphere.
