This is such a beautiful school with great teachers. We couldn't ask for more. I highly recommend this school.



- a
Staff and students have positive interactions every day. This school is small enough to allow a family/village feel to it.




- a
My child has blossomed under the care and guidance of the staff. Her self confidence has improved and she enjoys going to school.

Teacher effectiveness: Strongly agree


- a
Ballentine teachers are amazing. They are smart, creative and hardworking. They are limited in time due to the over-testing they are required to do. I think these teachers need the freedom to teach they way they know how to do.

Amount of homework: Agree


- a
The younger kids have a little too much. Kindergarten is not like it used to be. The older grades need it to prepare them for middle school.


Develops character: Strongly agree


- a
Integrity is more important than test scores. Our principal is strongly concerned that each child, regardless of social status, be treated with the same fairness.



- a
Intelligent, caring staff. AG program that is outstanding. Approachable teachers, they are more like family than teachers, really.



- a
This school is small but mighty. Our teachers work hard and our kids are loved.


Develops character: Strongly agree


- a
From what I know of everyone who works at Ballentine, they thrive to be the best they can be.



- a
We love this school, the only thing we would like to change is for the kids to be able to celebrate holidays and birthdays.
