The teachers are constantly working to find different ways of having each student improve individually. I refer to this as the individualized Child targeted strategy, and they do this in order to challenge and help if need be the child. This place breeds and nurtures readers. Student's horizon is broaden through music, art and technology.
This is great schools with all great staff.Building is very good and Principle is very good too.
One of our children attended grades 1-6 at Bluffsview and our other 2 are currently students there. Maybe 1 or 2 dud teachers (which we have avoided) but other than that, simply outstanding education. 5 stars. Parental involvement should get 6 stars!
I think Bluffsview is a wonderful school with an outstanding principal, excellent teachers and staff.
its a great school with very experienced teachers and the principal is too supportive
The staff is great and care so much about the well being of the kids.. not just the test scores. (Although they always have fantastic test scores too!)
Academically this school gets a B+ from me; parental involvement is definitely A+; it is a great community. Overall this is a great school. There are some excellent teachers (as well as some duds). Most of the discipline problems are bright kids who are not challenged. I am not surprised to find the steep decline in 3rd grade reading scores as we refer to my childs year with Curry as the lost year. If you think I'm just carping, read the scores and we can both watch them over time.
Strong points include full day kindergarten (at extra monthly cost, but definitely worth it). KG, 1st and 2nd grade teachers are A+, especially Gardiner, Schwarz, Gehring, also Westbrook - all are top notch in every way. For 3rd grade Monroe also an A+/top notch. Very solid support for kids at all levels of ability. Gifted program for 2nd grade on up in Math and Language Arts has top notch faculty (need 95% ACH plus ~98% IQ/Cognitive score- so very small sizes for gifted classes (called 'EPP'), as few as 2 students, up to 6 to 8 or so in some). We live here only because of this school.
Private school curriculum in a public school. I cannot praise it enough.
