Paul C Bunn Elementary School5

My daughter started here in Kindergarten after moving here from Phoenix, AZ. We have loved it from the start! There are lots of free programs if your child needs extra help, a free half day preschool on campus, free bus transportation, free breakfast and lunch, and all the staff is very helpful and friendly! My daughter comes home happy each day telling me about what she's learned. The school cares about all of it's students, and the teachers and supporting staff provide a low teacher to student ratio, which is great! The campus is very nice as well, being rebuilt/upgraded just a couple years ago. Loving this school!
i went to Paul C. Bunn for 4 years and it is a wonderful school i wish i never left.....but i'm positive that it is a wonderful school to send your children too....great students,excellent teachers,and an outstanding principal..and my favorite part about Paul C. Bunn was.......none other than D.I. the best after-school program i was ever in and this school offers it an excellent way to show imagination.....Love u always and 4-ever Paul C. Bunn<3
Overall this school district is lacking, the new building is nice but the same problems exist. Lack of discipline, lack of Principal supervision , poor office management, poor school-parent-student relations and the list goes on. Unfortunately we cannot afford to send our children anywhere else. The only light in this school are the teachers themselves, every teacher we've encountered over the years is well educated and has a lot of personal, life, and education experience to offer the kids they teach. Any lacking is not the fault of the teachers! It's the system that they are required to teach to.
The academic programs are average. However, special ed programs are below average. Art and music are part of the curriculum. However, there is lack of additional, outside activities. The level of parent involvment is minimal to say the least.
Paul C. Bunn was the first school in the Youngstown City Schools to rank Effective on the Ohio state report card. It has a wonderful caring principal and staff dedicated to the education of students. Overall the Youngstown City Schools are improving and with new buildings, including Paul C. Bunn, on the way-our outlook toward the future looks great!
