My kids have attended Butler for 4 years and it is truly a great school! The staff and teachers are amazing. They are helpful, kind, and love what they do! There are many opportunities for parents to volunteer (in & out of the classroom), but we are never pressured to volunteer. Lots of year round activities too... the Father/Son disc golf tournament, Father/Daughter dance, Halloween carnival and End of year barbecue. Wonderful group of children and teachers. This school is definitely worth moving for or transferring to!

Develops character: Agree

There is a Kindness Club, and several different programs where the students are encouraged to make the right choices, be respectful, etc. 'Always do the right thing, even when no one is watching!'




- a parent
The parents and students at this school live in a bubble. These children (& parents) have no idea what the real world is like. The administration tolerates bullying b/c of "political reasons and associations." If you are WHITE, PRIVILEGED & all up in the school's biz (ie, Dad's Club, PTA, etc.), this is the school for your child! Finally, if you want a school where MORE is expected of the CHILDREN than the ADULTS who TEACH them, THIS IS THE SCHOOL FOR YOU!!!!

Teacher effectiveness: Strongly agree


- a parent
Always looking for innovating ways to teach and engage their students, Butler teachers are gifted!

Amount of homework: Agree


- a parent
Varies by grade. Depends on how you feel about homework as a parent. Some might think it's not enough; others might think it's too much!


Develops character: Strongly agree

Students are encouraged to and rewarded for exhibiting character traits through the MVP of Character program. Kids in each grade who demonstrate such traits (i.e., caring, honesty) are invited to a special ceremony and lunch "on the stage" each month.

Incredibly involved PTA and Dad's Club, unique academic and creative opportunities for students and outstanding teachers and administration. Butler students consistently score well on state academic assessments, but more importantly, are encouraged to be good citizens - polite, respectful, engaged, and active. From the fall carnival, Garden Club, Chess Club, Popcorn in the Park, Daddy-Daughter Dance, teacher appreciation events, Kindergarten Circus, talent show, book fair, Fun Run, Father-Son Frisbee Golf to fundraisers for the local animal shelter, Christmas angel tree, coat drive to field trips, engaged learning, smart classrooms and forward thinking educators - all combine to create an incredible learning environment. Butler is a very special place.

Butler is a school that is best described as underachieving. My daughter has attended Butler for 5 years and is rarely challenged. The work provided to her is either worksheet or pulled from a workbook. I've met with teachers and they always point to their exemplary status. They haven't received this rating in several years. This school is about the adults rather than kids. Do a lot of research before enrolling here.

Great school and hard working teachers! Second daughter is starting there now, as my first is going to 7th grade.



- a parent
Great School! A long tradition of parent involvement. Many long term teachers and an excellent school councilor in Ms. Davis. It was well worth the time to stand in line at 5am at the district offices to able to transfer to this school. Very stable neighborhood surrounds the school. It is worth it to pay a little extra for a house in this area.
