I am really happy with the school. We have a new building, parents are much more involved and are happy about all the changes and my daughter thinks her teacher is beautiful and smart. My only complaint is I would like to see more after school activities or clubs. Some stuff is offerred but it not all year. That's my only recommendation. Everything else is great!

My child has been at Bonner for the last five years. The school has been improving every year under the direction of Ms. Rodriguez, Principal. Her staff tries very hard and seems to really care about the students. Whenever a problem comes up, Ms. Rodriguez and her faculty works hard to resolve it to my satisfaction and I appreciate that.

Overall I am really impressed with Bonner Elementary, my son started reading in kindergarden thanks to the dececaded teachers and staff. The principle is always involved interacting with students,staff and parents which I feel is very important and also she make time out of her busy schedle to meet with parents at any given time. The after school programs that they have in place are very helpful to me as a parent and the students participating to make so programs going is very well done by students.
