All of the negative reviews are 100% accurate. My son has been attending BES for 3 years but this will be his last as we will be sending him to private school in the fall. The principal is horrible. She is rude and unapproachable. She treats her teachers poorly and the lack of morale is very apparent. There is a high turnover rate in teachers and student behavior problems are brushed aside. Some children belong in a detention enter rather than an elementary school. Children can't keep their hands off each other and discipline and consequences for poor behavior are nonexistent. Test scores have dropped tremendously. The principal needs to go and then maybe this school will be the great school it should be. Good riddance.
