Amount of homework: Disagree

Homework is not up to par for the grade. No studying is done. No notes. No books. It's ridiculous

My children have attended three schools since arriving in Clarksville 2 years ago. First was Rossview; then they changed the zone to Oakland. We moved to a larger place and was told we had the option of Rossview and Burt/St.B's. Come to my surprise; Rossview was NOT an option when I had to sign up the kids for school. I was livid but signed them up for Burt. Needless to say, this school is one of the worst my children have ever attended. Not just with academics, but mainly with the BULLYING and lack of supervision. My son had to change classes because one child kept hitting and threatening to kill him; plus much more. Now that my son has changed classes, his current teacher does little to nothing to stop the bullying. For kids that defend themselves, they are also reprimanded and have in-school or primary suspension. My daughter is also bullied and comes home in tears most days. I would not even consider going to any of the teachers. The principle that is there currently is doing well. It is her first year and has been extremely helpful. But, if you can afford and can drive your children elsewhere. PLEASE... PLEASE DO SO. If I could legally drive they would not be going to Burt. (I cannot drive due to an ongoing medical issue).

They work hard for all the students and really care. The staff is available and receptive to parents concerns.

Amount of homework: Agree

The homework that is given is to reinforce what is learned during the school day. It isn't overwhelming but is preparing the students for the challenges of middle school.

The teachers and administrators really care and are willing to work with students and parents.

Burt Elementary School is a great school. My kids have loved their time here and left for middle school very prepared. The teachers are caring and dedicated and the administration is supportive. Being close to APSU, the local university, is an added bonus as we get student volunteers studying to be future teachers. That extra hands on attention is great for the students. Burt Elementary has been great!

Dear teachers I understand that is very hard to keep up with a lot of students, I was one once and I know how hard headed students can be. But teachers, faculty staff, coaches and other schools employees have a responsibility as the second line in teaching moral, values to our children that are going to endure though out their scholar years. Most times bullies are part of a direct result of parenting lack of skills in teaching their kids values but I as a responsible parent try to do my best to teach this values to my son. If I fail to do that it is your responsibility to teach my son or any other student at your school the values and responsibilities of life, the respect that one owe to himself as the respect for others. Don't talk about bullying, do something! Y'all can teach all the subjects y'all want but the subject you're failing in is respect!

Bullying is the most common issue in school and you're are doing a poor job at teaching others the consequences of bullying. Weather it is intentional or not, if some parents can not teach respect to their kids , you are the second line of influence to teach that in school. I can't go door to door talking to parents about the consequences of bullying but y'all in school can teach the students and should have 110% student awareness when it comes to teaching respect for others. Remember the bully don't understand that you don't do to others what you don't want to be done to you.

Bullying issues. Transportation is very badly zoned. My son should attend any of the three our four school closer to our home.

Being a military family, new to the Clarksville area, I was worried about sending my kids to two different elementary schools. But now that they have been here nearly a year they are both thriving. They both never want to move because they love it so much. I am impressed with the level of communication with the parents as well as the awesome bus system. And the teachers are ... AWESOME! We are proud to be St. Bethlehem Bees and Burt Tigers!
