This school is the worst choice a parent can make for their child entering school in WS. The attitudes and teaching skills of many of the teachers is substandard, the principal and administration spend all of their time putting out fires related to their poorly performing teachers, there are no extracurricular activities at this school for the children, the building is filthy, and the children aren't learning anything academically or socially. Please do your research before subjecting your baby to Bolton Elementary school. There are better options in the area, steer clear of this one
I think all of the negative reviews are a joke. The principle is very involved. The staff is excellent. The main thing as long as the parent stays involved with the child and participates with the school, there is no room for failure. This school is highly dedicated to making each and every child a success. I am so pleased with my choice of sending my child to this school, even though it is out of our district.
Is there a negative star rating? I'm so happy to be getting my child far away from this school. The principle is a mess and the administration is a joke. My child is so far advanced and is held back because the teachers are dedicating all the time to the children who can't speak english. Most of the teacher's are ridiculously rude and their seems to be no control. Another student threatned to harm my child and not one single thing was done about it. This school does not need anymore funding to continue title 1 status. They need a whole new administration. The teacher had no idea what a room mother is. There are no activities and no parent involvement.
