Benjamin T Bullock Elementary School5

My spouse is military and we relocated to this area. My son has been attending Bullock for past 4 years. He loves this school and I think the entire staff is wonderful! Both the teachers and Administration are very motivated in all aspects. A warning to anyone moving to Sanford... when you get here everyone will tell you that you need to enroll your child(ren) in Tramway Elementary or else your child is missing out on a good education if your child does not attend there. That is why parents from all over the county drive to Tramway... it's all BS.. test scores will prove this. This school is very diverse but if you are staying in the Sanford area this is what the child can expect when they get to middle school and high school any way. This is an overall excellent school!
This school has some really great aspects that are sadly shadowed by guidance from immature and inappropriate administration. Pam Sutton who has been the principal for almost 8 years now I believe, has pushed away good teacher after good teacher due to her lack of professionalism and the poor moral that she forms amongst the teachers. This is then reflected on to the kids because it affects the teachers in there over all demeanor. This would be a much better school under different leadership.
This school has obviously changed since the previous reviews. My son is a good student and not a discipline problem. It seems the principal has her favorites and that's it. This is my son's 4th elementary school due to moves with the military. This school is by far the worst. The principal is the worst and in 2 years of attending, I could not tell you what she looks like. It's really kind of scary. Maybe it's an entire district issue?
Benjamin T. Bullock is a fantastic school! My daughters have attended Bullock since 2006. Every teacher they have had at Bullock truly cares about students and academic excellence is a priority. One of my children has ADHD and the school has gone above and beyond to see her succeed and work with her special needs. I definitely would recommend this five star school to anyone planning to relocate in Lee County!
My children have attended BT Bullock since 2004. The school is absolutely fantastic and the teachers really care about the students. My youngest is very very active (like I was) and extremely bright. While every other teacher in his previous school was trying to get him dosed up on Ritalin (which I refused), his current teacher saw his behavior for what it really was; boredom. She challenged him and used appropriate discipline and he has done a complete 180-degree turn and is doing extremely well. My daughter has also thrived and is reading and doing math at a level roughly 2 years ahead of her current grade according to the nationwide tests. The after school programs offered at the school through the YMCA are also fantastic. I bought my house to be in the BT Bullock district and am thrilled I made that decision.
