My daughter has been attending Bluebonnet Elementary for 3 years, she loves it. The Principal is usually aware of the children's needs, strengths and he is always available to speak to parents by phone. All the staff are wonderful people, always helpful, every single one of them knows who my daughter is. Her teachers have always been caring and very much in communication with us. I know my daughter will miss the school dearly when she moves on to middle school.

My Daughter attends this school. The faculty is outstanding, and offers help with a smile. I wouldn't change a thing, the teachers are very informative. My child enjoys attending.

This will be the 2nd year my daughter has been at Bluebonnet and we absolutely love it! My daughter is very excited about school and never wants to be absent. This says a lot about the teachers and the staff. She is a very happy and secure child and Bluebonnet staff has a lot to do with that.
