Here's another side of the story. While we do agree with some of the previous negative comments about the elementary school (music, computer lab, foreign language)there are far more positives than negatives. Did the writer know she was moving to Franklin County in northern Vermont where resources and funds for education can be limited? Despite that,BFA has enrichment programs, state champs in various varsity sports, incredible parent involvement, awesome teacher quality, school-wide safety program, book discussions, concerts (community and school), art shows, drama, sports, all school morning meetings, family dances, story time, play groups, etc., I could go on and on. My 3 kids are all straight A students (elementary grades are standards based and given letters) and are absolutely instilled with a sense of achievement. There are many programs if you look for them and if something doesn't work, try to fix it. Our recommendation: send your kids to BFA!
