As a concerned and hopefully helpful aunt, I experienced the worksheetdotcom worksheets another reviewer mentioned! I am the aunt of students who attended Boyd's Creek. Note "attended" in the past tense because my nieces/nephews are lucky enough to have moved to another school. I saw very little development in both their learning skills and their social skills. I also agree with the parent who used the word "nightmare". Its my hope that the staff of this school rethinks how they pigeon hole students, never providing hope for growth. School should, for the most part, be a joyful, exciting experience. It was anything but that for my nieces/nephews. There was an alarming lack of supervision and instruction. Busywork is not instruction; a lesson needing to be learned by some of the teachers at this school!

My son started kindergarten this year. I was a bit hesitant about it because he is only 5 years old and he had to be tested in to start but he was bored in pre-school and did not like going. From the moment we walked in Ms. Grosser was incredibly welcoming and wonderful with my son! He is in Ms. Jones's class and he absolutely LOVES it, we could not ask for a better teacher!!! He has learned so much this year, he is reading like a champ and enjoys going to school every day. Ms. Grosser, Ms. Jones, and all of the staff that we come in contact with have been great and truly care about the physical, emotional and mental well being of their students. Any problems that have come up have been addressed immediately and were handled very well! Thumbs up to all of you and know we greatly appreciate all that you do! We are blessed to have such a wonderful group of people guiding are son through these years! Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!!!!

I couldn't disagree more with the last review!! I know exactly who this child is and she couldn't be farther from a bully!! On the other hand, the child she is accused of bullying I have personally seen act horribly. I think it is time we wake up and stop pretending our kids are perfect and realize that kids will be kids. Stop making such a big deal out of every little thing that goes on in life and pay attention to what really matters. Boyds Creek Elem. is a wonderful school where the staff is friendly and the teachers treat the kids as their own. They truly love these kids and as far as I'm concerned, anyone who says a bad word about this school is just plain wrong. May be you should try to figure out what true involvement your child has in this "bullying" situation before you start casting stones.

I am so disappointed in this school. There is constant bullying and it is done by a teachers kid. The school knows about this and yet rather than address it, or make it stop, they seem to reward this child with being the 'star' of all school musical productions. This is sending a very mixed message to the students. The staff needs to wake up and realize just because the mom is a popular teacher should be NO EXCUSE for allowing consistent bullying from her child. I strongly urge any parents or anyone with concerns about bullying within this school to step forward and not just let it happen. To anyone considering enrolling here make sure to really check out all your options before enrolling.

Transferred child due to bad attitude of teachers, especially body language and dishonesty regarding events witnessed by me. Plans for child not followed through, poor documentation of days called to pick up student, lack of communication from teachers and staff, "click" mentality of staff overheard talking about parents negatively while waiting in office.

This school is Amazing! The teachers we have had are all intelligent, hard working, and compassionate people. The administration has a student first mentality instead of numbers first. That being said, I just heard they received a 5 out of 5 for their standardized test scores! After looking at the state report card, this school is not only the best in the county, but could be one of the best in the state. I thank God daily for this school.

I have 3 children attending BCES, and could not be happier with this school! We moved to the area 3 years ago from out of state, and were very nervous as to how our children would adapt to their new environment. From the moment we stepped into the building the staff made us feel right at home! My children were welcomed by their classmates, and enjoyed getting up every morning to go to school! Our daughter with Special Needs gets more instruction, love, and attention than any parent can hope for. They have gone above and beyond for her, and have always been considerate to our wishes and her needs. The principal is always there to listen to our ideas, and give advice to make sure that my children get the best possible elementary experience they can! All the teachers we have had have been amazing,and truly cared about my children as students and as individuals. My children are exceptional students, and I am confident that the staff at BCES will always nurture their individuality and their learning experience. My only regret is that there isn't a Boyds Creek High School!

As a grandparent, I'm very concerned about the quality of education my grandchildren have received at this school. I'm appalled at the worksheets. I'm appalled at the lack of disciplinary skills. I'm appalled by the sheer boredom my grandchildren have felt. This school has seemed more like a poor babysitting factory where the children must bide their time and then learn at home to gain what they need.


Posted July 7, 2012

Our daughter has been at BCES for two years and we could not be more disappointed. We have had to practically home school to provide her with the most basic instruction for her grade level. Her class didn't complete the TN state standards this year. Technology is nonexistent. The teachers seem overwhelmed and unprepared. We supposedly had the best teacher for her grade level but were shocked by her lack of intelligence and poor grammar. The principals (there are 3) seem to want to do better but do not have the experience or ability to make it work. They make an effort to encourage parent involvement but it doesn't seem to make much difference in this community. The Sevier County education system as a whole is poorly managed and needs help. We would strongly recommend looking elsewhere.

What a nightmare! The school was absolutely below any expected standard of what an elementary school should be for children. My children's confidence depleted at an alarming rate within weeks of enrolling at this school. The leadership is extremely lacking and gives a horrible example for the staff to follow. I would recommend that you put your children in a school that puts the child's needs first. I completely agree with the previous comment about the focus of the school on test scores instead of nurturing children's minds.

They are amazing at this school, and I wish they would have more to offer. My daughter loves to act, sing, and dance. I wish she could be a part of a club that she could do the things she loves. Her teachers love her creativity, and I'm proud of her. This school helped her get the way she is.

My son has been going to BCES going on 4 yrs now. He has had the best teachers since he started and an office staff that shows nothing but love and concern when the kids come in for help. He is in 5th grade now and he loves his school. In my opion you can make or break a child on how they feel about school in their elementray years and my son loves his school and that is due to how he has been treaded by the teachers staff. Thank You Tracye Foster

While I feel my kids are enjoying school here I think that they do not care enough about parent involvement. They do not have a 'PTA' (parent teacher association). Instead they have 'Principles Round Table' that no one but a select few chosen by the teachers even know about. They need to let parents be more involved. If this organization is truely open to 'everyone' then why do you need to be nominated to be invited? It's very fishy.

I am so impressed with Boyds Creek. It is a GREAT school!! Mr. Wade (the principal) goes way above and beyond any other principal I've ever seen. If it's pouring rain in the mornings, he's out there with an umbrella getting all the kids inside. Everyday he stands out there at pick-up time to help get kids to the right parents. He's wonderful! All the staff are fantastic! So far, Mrs. Maxwell for Kindergarten and Mrs. Helton for 1st grade are fantastic teachers. I sure hope we continue to have the same experiences as the kids move through the other grades. I feel the school is VERY safe. They take all threats seriously and I LIKE THIS! I would never take my kids anywhere else!

I like the teachers and staff at the school however i feel that the sixth through eighth grade students are being deprived of programs that most schools offer for these grades such as home economics shop etc. They also only have gym 2-3 times per week and most middle schools require 5 days per week. They have very limited space for outside activities they do not have a track or tennis courts or even a large field. The playground also needs to be expanded for the number of children in the school. Overall the teachers are great the staff is freindly and they have an officer on sight which is always a plus.

I have 1st, 3rd, & 4th grader. I home schooled my 4th grader for kindergarten because I didn't want him starting somewhere else, (the school wasn't open yet) making friends, and then having to leave. I did this with the commitment to my children, I would take them out and home school if I felt any threat that the school couldn't handle. I am extremely happy with every teacher we have ever had to deal with. I can't say enough about the office staff and principals. I feel my children are in a private school. Go BC staff!

I feel confident knowing that my children are being taught in an intellectually challenging, and safe school. I appreciate knowing that there is a police officer helping to protect the children, and a principal who does not tolerate bullying, or threatening behavior from all involved. I do feel that the playground could be expanded.

In 2012-2013 Tennessee used the Tennessee Comprehensive Assessment Program (TCAP) Achievement Test to test students in grades 3 through 8 in reading/language arts, math, science and social studies. The TCAP is a standards-based test that measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Tennessee. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level.

The different student groups are identified by the Tennessee Department of Education. If there are a small number of students in a particular group, the state doesn't report data for that group.
