Great help with my 2 sons 504 for adhd. Teachers go above and beyond. PtA very involved. Programs are robust and more and more positive momentum in regards to parental involvment.

Bolin is a fabulous school unless your student has any sort of learn disability. School and its leadership has no clue how to administer, manage or document a 54 program. If your child has a learning disability, be prepared to be frustrated. AISD as a whole is excellent. But, they have issues to deal with regarding FAPE.

I love Bolin! I have a student in Kindergarten and was very hesitant about public schools. The teachers were extremely comforting during the transition in the first few weeks. My child comes home raving about the wonderful day they had and all the fun things they did! They cannot wait to go back the next day. As a parent, that brings me such piece of mind and I could not be more thankful to those teachers who are giving my child a love of learning as they are starting their foundation in education. I'm also very impressed with all the technology they are incorporating into the classroom. I look forward to what is to come and know that there is no other place I would want my child to be than at Bolin.

Bolin is a well-run, excellent school. The teachers are amazing and the amount of emphasis placed on the children's SELF ESTEEM is beyond anything I have ever seen in an elementary school. We absolutely LOVE Bolin. The parent and PTA involvement is fabulous!!!! Proud to be a Bolin Blazer and looking forward to several more years of Blazer pride!

Not real impressed with Bolin Elementary. We moved from the east coast and the residents raved about Allen ISD and Bolin in particular. My child is in kindergarden and the concepts they are learning now are things she learned when she was 3-4 years old. I know that coming from the east coast there would be a change school wise but this is rediculous. My child is not challenged at all in this school. The Gifted & Talented program is also a joke. They meet for a total of 30 min PER WEEK. At best (at higher grades) the max time per week is 2 1/2 hrs per week. Not at all what I expected from the Texas school system. Also, noticed this little tid bit, the more you are involved with your child at the school the better the grades they will receive. Never been around something like this in my life.

I submitted my first child into Bolin when we first moved to Allen. He loved Mrs. Wykoff, she was a very caring teahcer. After his first year there, I sent my first grader there. Mr. Holley was very nice, and she said the only thing she didn't like was having to wake up at seven! All of the staff was nice to my children, even the bus drivers were nice! They said they would never forget Bus 60!

Bolin Elementary is a fantastic school. I come from a family of educators and wondered if this school would meet my expectations. Bolin has exceeded them. The staff is wonderful! My child looks forward to school everyday and hurries to do her homework when she gets home because she likes it so much.

The teachers are fantastic. My kids love them. The only complaint that I have is the same as a previous poster. My child that needs help is definitely getting it, but my child that needs to be challenged is not. I do wish that the school (administration possibly) would allow me to take my kids out of school for enrichment, but I was told that is not possible.

Bolin Elementary has great parent involvement that benefits the students and school community. TAKS scores are extremely high due to the skill and care of the teachers.

Posted January 30, 2006

We chose to enter our 5 years old into Bolin instead of private kindergarten because many parents had told us that they were happy with the school. Allen ISD is known for it's Special Ed program which is excellent. My 3 year old was evaluated and enrolled into the speech therapy program and has improved greatly! However, our 5 year old in Kindergarten is academically advanced and very bored with school. His teacher is a wonderful teacher but a bit overwhelmed with 5 special needs kids in her class that demand most of her time. If your child needs extra academic help, AISD has a great program to get kids up to speed and to meet special needs, but if your child is 1-2 grades above average, chances are your child will not be challenged.

My son started this school very close to the end of the school yar, but the staff and teachers were very good about getting him acclimated to the school. I would have liked however to seen a PTA member contact me to see I wanted to be involved.

About the tests


In 2012-2013, the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR) was used to test students in reading and math in grades 3 through 8; in writing in grades 4 and 7; in science in grades 5 and 8; in social studies in grade 8; and end-of-course assessments for English I, II, and II, Algebra I and II, biology and US History. STAAR is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Texas. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.

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

Schools and districts rated under standard accountability procedures are designated as Exemplary, Recognized, Academically Acceptable or Academically Unacceptable. Schools and districts rated under alternative education accountability (AEA) procedures are designated as either AEA: Academically Acceptable or AEA: Academically Unacceptable.
