Butler Acres has been a wonderful school for my two children. The principal and staff are very supportive and always ready to listen and help when needed. The school offers a varity of extra activities such as music, p.e, library and orchastra. The PTO is also great and provides a lot of fun activities through the year. Maybe the only thing that would make it a little better would be nicer playgrounds, but otherwise I have found it to be a great school for my kids.
The quality of education at this school is superb. The teachers are of a very high caliber and truly commit to teaching their students. The school does an excellent job at meeting state standards.
Butler Acres is a supportive school that works intentionally to ensure a positive, and community based learning environment for the yongest of Kelso School District. Class sizes have been kept to under 24 students 1-3rd grades. This helps to create a small learning environment that brings these children to the center of their learning, and makes disciplinary issues less of a hinderance to thiw process. The class sizes gradually increase 4th and 5th grades to a cap at 28. This brings the numbers up so that the transition to the middle school loads of 31 per class is not so overwhelming to the student. My children have been treated with great care at BA and the administration is an advocate for the children as well as very responsive to the parents.
My two grandchildren that I'm raising have been going to Butler Acres for 3 years. It has a wonderful environment for education. The teachers are great and are always willing to discuss any concerns that you may have with your childs education, and learning process. My son who is in Coweeman this year loved all of his teachers at Butler Acres. The teachers helped prepare him for Junior High, where he has been on the honor roll every quarter. My daughter has blossemed at Butler Acres, and I couldn't be happier with the teachers that she has had. She will be moving onto Coweeman next year and I believe that Butler Acres has prepared her for the journey. If you are moving into Cowlitz county and looking for a good school for your children, I would recommend you check into Butler Acres for their education needs. See what they have to offer.
