Bonham Academy is within San Antonio ISD, so it will be limited by the school district's mandates to drill, teach to the test, and to do just the minimum to ensure enrollment and funding. The principal has been at this school for three years and has failed to show leadership and creativity. Her actions are dictated by the district's anxieties and fears, due to its "unacceptable" rating, because of low test scores in the school district overall. It is not a true dual-language school, since there are few actual Spanish-speaking children in each class. So much potential there. Frustrating.

the Dual Language Program is fantastic. My kindergartener is able to speak and read in English and Spanish!

Great community school, most active parent group of ANY school. Parents helped raise over $60,000 in ONE year (and this school just serves 500 kids) through multiple fundraisers, grants, festivals, community events, and more. Kids are more than test scores, they are real people. School is a community charter, emphasizing pillars of Cultural Arts, Environmental Education, and Dual Language.

Bonham Academy is a happy place for children - children are learning in two languages and sometimes three, they come from all backgrounds and work constructively together, teachers are positive and nurturing and they have a wonderful network of parents and community members.

My daughter started Kinder last year at Bonham Academy and she loves it! She has learned so much in English and Spanish. She comes home speaking spanish and has even learned some chinese and german! I love this school! There is a lot of Parent involvement and my daughters teacher is always available to answer questions and concerns.

Bonham became an Academy (Pre-K -8 grades) about two years ago. The jury is still out, though it doesn't look good! There are good reasons to have good solid Middle Schools with rigorous and varied programs instead of Academies which only tend to hide, temporarily, the lack of good Middle School programs. Looking at my kids homework I wonder about the Science and Math instruction at Bonham. When my kids are Middle School aged they will attend traditional Middle Schools elsewhere. Art is great and so are Dual Language programs, Math and Science programs should not however suffer to have these. It would be nice to see this District and Community make serious financial commitments to rigorous Science and Math offerings in solid Middle Schools. Children should be well rounded, but they should also be prepared to work in areas requiring Science and Math.

My daughter started school this year at Bonham. But I don't seem to get communication with her teacher. Even though I asked her teacher. I don't get good feedback on whats going on in class. I wonder if other parents feel this way
