My oldest son, now middle-schooler, attended Bartlett Elem and Rivercrest Elem. I was much more pleased with the administrative staff at Bartlett and the teacher's were wonderful. I have never seen parent participation like this. I now have three first graders there and would like to move my residency to a larger home; my next home purchase is largely influenced by my boys ability to stay at Bartlett Elem.

I have children in Special Education. Bartlett Elementary has an awesome special needs program that carries through each elementary grade. The teachers truely care about the children. Ms. Davis has made my son sore with reading, writing, and math. I am forever grateful to her and the school! Diane Adams

A very substandard school. I attended this school as a child and was very disappointed at the level it now performs. Performed on the level of the lowest student instead of elevating all students to excel. Principal was not very 'child friendly'. Staff was very unfriendly and teachers were good but burnt out. I moved out of the area just because of the school and my child attends a much fresher school in the district.

My son is in 2nd grade and has been at Bartlett Elementary since kindergarten. I think that they do a wonderful job of safety and teaching. I think that they have a great principle which makes a difference in the school. Of course the teachers are outstanding!

Having moved to this area for the school system and the lack there of in Memphis, I am more than pleased that my son attends Bartlett Elementary, in fact, I'm proud! The teachers have been very attentive to the kids needs and provide an excellent atmosphere for learning!

Parent involvement is high at Bartlett Elementary. It was standing room only last year for an event held in the spring and it was pretty much like that for all functions/events held after hours.
