My daughter is in 5th grade and my son is in 2nd grade. When they started that school, I liked it. Mrs. Daily was a very good principal but now she is gone and I strongly disapprove of the school and faculty. My kids have had some bad experiences there and it seems to be getting worse, in my opinion. I am moving so my kids can be zoned to a different school.

I gave the school a rating of 3 for the good teachers who I have met who do their best. The problem in this school is the constant change in administration the current one has not managed to maintain what the previous principal Tammie Daily accomplished. They do not offer support for the parents or teachers either they do not know what they are doing or they do not care. It is a shame because as a parent I was excited about the changes implemented by Daily but under Principal Chavez I m not sure about this school anymore.

I went to this school from 2nd grade till 5th grade. Now I am 20 years old, this school is still fresh on my mind. They had wonderful teachers that knew what they were doing and wonderful activities. They had alot of different programs for all kinds. I never failed any grades because they had really good teachers and after school programs to help with kids falling behind. I was in girl scouts, volleyball and art class. I use to love field day, they would have so many thing going on at once.! I love this school and I will never forget any of my childhood memories spent there.

This is a very good school, I attended this school as a child and now I want my son to enjoy this school as I did. The teachers are very involved in the students activities and my son has learned alot in the short time school has been in. I am really happy that he likes it.

This school is good if you just want the basic education and very little caring from the teachers.

have encountered disrepectful teachers on 3 occasions. classes are around 21 students on average. PTA fairly organized. not too many extracurrilar activities. other agencies housed at school to help with extra needs, such as clothing, food, etc. (social work).

My daughter is a kindergartner at Bonham. She was in pre-k last year and her teacher was Mrs. Cruickshank. I can't say enough about how wonderful she was. She truly understands the difficulty that some children have transitioning from home to school. She was wonderful. I do have one complaint about Bonham and it may be more of a district promblem that school. The bussing system is atrocious. In the afternoon I was told they send all the pre-k and kindergartners home on the first run, and that it should get there around 3:15 or so, yet I have witnessed with my child and other children them not coming home on the first or second run. They end up coming on a third (overflow) run and that is often 4pm or even later. I don't understand how that happens. So that is somenthing that should be adressed.
