    My daughter was in Kindergarten half of the year (since we had moved into the district) and I felt as if she was not challenged enough. The teacher didn't always grade the work and I believe the standards were set too low in the class. Every time I took my daughter to the classroom almost every single child was out of control and the teacher did not have a handle on the kids. I'm not sure if it was the students or the teacher or a combination of the two. I do believe the teacher tried her best but maybe she was not suited for a Kindergarten classroom. I really did hope for more for my child as far as what she could have learned this year. Kindergarten is an important intro into school and compared to the school we came from this school is set way below what I would have excepted.

    Children are treated as equal and homework is lacking. My child isnt challenged. I have liked all the teachers.

    This school is the best. My grandson is in 2nd grade and loves this school. Mr Estes is always available for the students and parents. It is great to see him at the front of the school every morning and after school greeting the kids and parents and available to discuss any concerns and making sure the campus is a safe environment for everyone. The teachers are great and are at this school by choice. A lot of the teachers are also parents that have chosen this school for their children. Teachers encourage parents involvement. I love the location of the school as it is not on a heavily traveled street so unless you live in the area you don't even know it is there. Much safer as far a traffic and also crime. Love it - love it - love it.

    This has been the worst school any of my children have ever attended I am pulling my child out due to the lack of discipline of problem students my child as well as others have had a constant problem w/ the same kids bulliying on the bus. I have spoken with the principle on several occations and nothing has been done!

    My son is on a boundary form in order to attend Bologna. This basically this is not his home school and we chose for him to attend and the district approved the request. Bologna is great and we love it. Our son has learned so much and had great teachers and peers. The staff in the office is very nice and attentive. My son has had problems with other students and the teacher has addressed them and now they are all great friends. I thank the Bologna staff for all their hard work and dedication.

    I sat through Curriculum Night with the first grade teachers several years ago. These teachers came across as a strong unified team dedicated to giving my children a quality experience. They did present using a powerpoint slide show but they did ask for feedback comments and questions from us parents. They spent time after their presentation to offer advice and answer questions on the curriculum. I think they did a wonderful job! I have 2 children that have completed first grade and still attend Bologna and I have been nothing but pleased with their teachers and the school in general.

    Our daughter is a 3rd grader that has attended Bologna since kindergarten. She has loved each of her teachers dearly felt safe & has progressed very well academically & socially. We are both very involved parents & the school community is also excellent. The entire staff @ Bologna is caring and willing to help with anything you or your child needs!

    This was our first Public School experience (coming from private Christian 7 years) and Bologna did not disappoint. Principal Estes is caring and organized Mr. Romano was top notch and a great communicator and Ms. Day a pure joy! Office staff are available friendly and professional PLT are super and committed and the extracurricular activities are consistent and invigorating. Looking forward to our new teachers Mr. Breen and Ms. Farmer whom we've both met and are impressed with. We could not have asked for a better experience for our two children. If you are a hands-on parent who likes to be involved in a positive manner you will love Bologna!

    Class sizes are to big.Most teaching targeted for average students.Not enough support for different types of learning styles.Not enough parent communication.Principal needs to be more involved with what is going on in the classrooms.

    I love Bologna! My children have felt comfortable safe and loved while learning at Bologna. The teachers are very caring. The principal has been great for me and my children. The level of parental involvement is good. Parents are encouraged to come in to volunteer run art masterpiece and/or teach junior achievement. Over the years I have noticed does the same parents helping out.

    This school is the greatest. I have been here since first grade and finished Bologna Elementary last year. The teachers really care and most of the teachers can relate to kids because they have young children. Many teachers are funny but always stay on track with the lesson. They know what they're doing and why they're doing it. As I said before they really do care.

    My daughter and I have LOVED her teachers at RGB. The after school activities are minimal and the I don't get a sense of strong principle leadership. At after school functions the parents tend to represent and support the school more than many of the staff. From what we have seen the parent involvement is very good! We will miss many of them as we move on to Junior High.

    My experience is with the Kindersteps program. It is a wonderful program for 4-year olds that barely miss the Kindergarten cut-off. Mrs. Parris is an excellent teacher. The students seem to enjoy all the options and field trips. The parents are quite active with the class.

    My son attended the kindersteps program and I highly recommend it to anyone who's child is ready for kindergarten but misses the cutoff date my son has excelled and will be attending 1st grade next year instead of just beginning kindergarten it would have been an injustice to wait a whole year as I feel he would have been bored stiff in kindergarten. Thanks ms. balaschak you've done a great job.

    Bologna seems to be a quality school where kids feel important and safe.

    Bologna is a 'great' school! I disagree with some of the comments that have been posted about Bologna. Mr. Estes has been very helpful. All of the teachers my children have had have been very qualified and caring individuals. I appreciate the calm tone of the campus and staff. If you are thinking about having your child attend Bologna Elem. stop by and check it out for yourself. Bologna is an excellent school with an awesome staff!

    I am new to Bologna this year. I love the schools atmosphere and teachers. I have a 1st grader and a third grader. The teachers seem to really care about my kids and love their jobs. Overall I would say Bologna is a great place for kids to learn and grow.
