AMAZING school. The staff and students are all so poised and so caring for each other. It's so unfortunate that they are shutting this school down.

I attended this school in Pre-K, Kinder and First Grade and my daughter is there now. It is amazing that this school has kept the school to be an environment that nurturing, caring and excellent. I still feel the same feeling when I walk in there 25+ years later. My daughter is very happy there and I hope to send my 3 other children there. Ms. Fernandez and her faculty/staff do a great job!

I love this school I attended kinder -3rd grade. Loved it then and and now.. All the kids in my family attend there. Right now we have 15 kids enrolled. Stories we tell them about our teachers are now being replaced with the NEW generation. PROUD to know that thes lil Eagles are a Blue Ribbon School and are constantly helping students with the BEST education they deserve.

At Bonham, students are the number one priority. Principal Henandez makes it her duty to know each and every student and is always willing to speak to parents regarding their concerns and comments. I have found that each teacher follows her example and provides extraordinary care and guidance to their students. At Bonham, the teachers organized team sports of basball and soccer. Playing sports promotes good sportmanship and leadership skils. Bonham is the ideal size and provides everything an elementary student needs to flourish.

Mary has been at Bonham for 3 years. The school is like a family. She is getting a great education and loves to go to school every day. The teachers work very hard to challenge Mary and teacher her patience. Bonham is a Blue Ribbon School and one of our teachers just won the 2010 Milken National Educator Award! Great cultural mix with caring involved parents. We are lucky to have this school!

I am really satisfied with Principal, staffs and teachers. My kid's teacher is very helpful and kind so that I ask about my kid freely. Also, teachers care all students very intensively and kindly even after school activity. Even though there are many hispanic students, asian and white students also are getting increasing. I really love this school. Also, my sweet daughter also really love this school. My anohter kids also will be here definetely.

Walk in the school and you'll feel it, too. There is a warmth at this school that oozes out and about the halls and classrooms. Kids are treated with respect and teachers instill an 'I can learn it' attitude in all their students. Parents in the neighborhood who choose to send their children to other schools or private ones are missing the opportunity of a lifetime to have their kids in a school that will nurture their children, while giving them a 'real world' experience by going to school with children from other cultures and races.

I actually attended this school as a child and now my son and nieces and nephews attend as well. Not only has this school achieved exemplary status but they have also built relationships with the students. Even to this day this school has that welcoming feeling for both students and parents. I love that they involve us in anything our children are doing and also when they are slacking on work. It's hard to keep up with kids sometimes but when you have a great teacher who is paying attention and gives the parents feedback on what our child needs help on, we are able to offer the help that they require. I love this school and would love to congratulate it for its hard earned work. Oh and I feel that our teachers need a raise.
