    My school is the best school. Teachers help me learn alot in different study and the staff in the main office is great. The rating is a five.

    My children receive the individualized attention they need and as a parent I feel I am treated well. My children scored very high on the state test which proves the teachers are doing their job! I love BES and I wouldn't want my children attending any other school.

    We feel that the school's quality could be in improved by having a better staff of teachers. There is more to life than pact testing. The children feel pressured and have no guidance in the lessons. The parents are the teachers. Where is all of the classtime spent? Programs? Free time? Needless guest speakers? More time needs to be spent on teaching and less on 'socializing' by teachers. They are there to learn from the paid teachers not by the parents. Do your jobs and stop making the parents do all the work! if you don't....We'll take over the payroll and make the checks out to ourselves. Notice the word 'teach' in teacher! your concerned parents.

    Blacksburg Elementary is in need of some serious help.They don't have much as far as extracurricular activities for their student's.The student's need more encouragement from their teacher's instead of feeling intimidated.When needing extra help on their work.They do have a great vice principal there though who really care's about the student's.He is a good role model for the other staff to follow.He show's his heart to the student's.Which make's it easier to come to him.When there's a problem.
