My daughter is in a Gen Ed classroom and is pulled out for English, Math, and Language arts. My daughter's resource teacher is awesome. She communicates her concerns and sends home ways of helping my child at home. My daughter is doing great in those subjects. The homeroom teachers are the ones who I have issues with. They are not trained to deal with children with IEPs. Sometimes I feel as I my daughter is not getting the attention she needs in general education class. My daughter works at a much slower pace and needs that extra instruction in order to perform. And she does not get that from her gen ed teacher. She comes home with blank worksheets sometimes with doodles ...because she has no idea what to do. So she draws instead. If her teacher took at least 2 mins to explain the instructions this school would be perfect. Her kinder gen ed teacher was the same. It seemed it was easier for her to ignore the children that needed the most help. I was glad when kinder year was over. 1st grade is a Ok but could be much better.

Blue Haze is a great school. The staff are friendly and extremely helpful. My two kids enjoyed going to school everyday. They have excellent teachers and Mrs. Boden is a pleasure to work with. The speech therapist, Mrs Harris is also great. I would highly recommend this school to anyone moving to White Settlement.

Blue Haze is a great school. My kids have learned so much. The teachers are awesome! The prinical and her assistants know the kids and tell them hi all the time. Mrs. Boden has the best personality and the kids love to hear announcements every morning. If I had to say a bad thing about it, it would be that they tend to be biased..if you're a teacher's child, you get special priviledges or if you are a 'bad' child, you get speical attention and rewards for having a good day with toys and such. But if you're just a regular kid who makes good grades and doesn't get into a lot of trouble, you may or may not get recognized for being good. My child was recently overlooked for a special group. I feel b/c I am not a faculty member or brown noser. But we love BH!

My child attended Blue Haze 1-4. The best school in the WORLD! Staff is great....Every single staff member in that school knew every single child and parent! The principle greeted every child entering the school every morning and most days was waving bye as the children were picked up. Rain or snow! I hate to go to the next grade!

BHE is the best school in the area. The Character Counts program is worth moving into the area.

The quality of academic programs is excellent. The whole staff makes an effort to encourage a child's intelect towards his/her goals. They have several programs suffice the need of extracurricular activities, such as plays, contests, sports, etc. School is very open minded towards parent involvement in both, the curricular and the extracurricular activities of the students.

Most of the teachers are awesome--really caring and patient. Administration could be more responsive to parents but seem to have good intentions for kids at heart.

I believe that Blue Haze Elementary has provided a wonderful education for many years and continues to do so. I actually attended Blue Haze from Kindergarten all the way through fifth grade some time ago. Now, the school only goes through the fourth grade because it feeds into an intermediate school. My much younger siblings currently attend the school and I am amazed at how much they are learning. Blue Haze teaches academics, as well as life skills, which is ultimately what we want all children to have the opportunity to learn. It is quite clear that the teachers at Blue Haze Elementary truly care about the education that their students are receiving. Parents and other family members are always welcomed to get involved in the education of their students. I would highly recommend Blue Haze Elementary for those who want their children to receive the highest quality of education.

My daughter has been attending Blue Haze for 2 1/2 years (K-2). We've enjoyed the schools and the teachers. The campus is emaculate and the curriculum and teachers superb. No problems here.

This is an excellent school! My child deals with both the regular curriculum and the Gifted/Talented program. He loves going to school at Blue Haze and in each of the 3 years that he has attended there, I have seen nothing but a positive, supportive atmosphere. The teachers and staff are excellent. I would recommend this school to anyone!
