Our family has been so happy with the teachers and staff. Everyone goes the extra mile to be sure your child has what they need to learn and be safe. We are so proud of all of you, and are thankful to have you.

Bargerton is an excellent place for students. Our principal, who transferred to BES this year, was recently named Educator of the Week by our local news station. I have two children who attend this school and love it.

I really like this school, but there is certain discpiline problems in the school. Our principle is totally burned out and shows no concern. He does not discpiline the kids and you can start to really show. The PTO is a wonderful organization and has done such a wonderful job! Thank you! The teacher's are great and you are also doing a great job! Keep it up!
