    I'm proud to say all 3 of my kids attended this school and they all did very well. The technology in the media center is amazing. I was blown away at how my computer literate my kids became and the teachers did a great job preparing students for the elementary level.

    Back and foot massages made local news. The teachers then announced to the class that it would no longer be permitted. Now they are punishing my A and B+ children for simply using the restroom. The office staff is rude. The Principle is unreachable. My children have been bullied and there is no communication from the school regarding any incidents and consequences for the bullies. I just can't wait for them to finish this year.

    Both of my daughters attended B-L Primary in grades K4 through Grade 2. The faculty and staff were always supportive of my children and encouraged them to do their very best. They received a great foundation during their time at BLPS and are now doing well in high school and college.
