I think Bostonian was a wonderful school. I attended there from kindergarten to 6th ggrade. I adored all my teachers and staff.. but of course that was between 1990 and 1996. I'm sure half of the teachers arn't there anymore. I would love to send my children there if I ever move back into that area.

I find Bostonia to be a great school. The teachers care for the students. The kids are recognized for their achievements and parents are informed if their child is a bit behind in some areas. My son just finished kindergarten and he loves it. As for parents in this review who do nothing but say negative things about the school.. keep in mind you as a parent are also involved in their schooling. The problem with alot of parents is that they expect the school to do the teaching 100% of the time.. wrong. To say the school is run like aboot camp is not a knock on the school but a testiment to their effort to help mold responsible behavior.. something perhaps these complainer parents need to get into a boot camp. For those parents concerned about scores.. believe me the teachers are qualified. alot of the students come from families where english is not the 1st language thus scores will be a bit low. Instead of some parents complaining about how low scores are.. let me give u a hint.. why don't u get involved in your kids education more instead of blaming the teacher or the school
I currently dont know anything about this school and I actually would like to know the latest (2012) of Bostania Elementry School. I am concern about the quality of teaching leadership academic and test scores stats and Bostania is being rated at 4 out of 10 very low!!! Can someone please give any information about this school thanks.
What music? You mean the one performance they put on each year? Knight is a horrible principal and treats the kids like they are an inconvenience to her. There is no nurse the office staff with the exception of Jennifer is horrible!! To top it off they are a PI year 3 school..3 years in a row they have not passed state testing. hmmm and Knight has been principal for 5 of those years...think about it...
Both of our children attended Bostonia Elementary school and we were very satisfied of the outcome of our children because they loved the teachers and the programs and over all the school. Were giving a chance to be active all the time and rewarded for that. Noe that our children are honor collage graduate we still feel that was a good school to put them into and wish the same for all generation coming up. Thanks
This school has gone downhill. It is overcrowded the principal runs it like a boot camp. The teachers are overworked there is no school nurse. My child will not be returning to Bostonia.
The teachers are dedicated and they work so hard. I appreciate everything they have done for the students of Bostonia.
The principal has brought music drama and art to Bostonia. It's a wonderful addition to the curriculum. What a great opportunity for our kids!
My daughter loves this school. She has had wonderful teachers all years that she has attended. This school does a great job of involving families to interact with one another. Great Job!!
I have 2 children at Bostonia Elementary school. I have loved every teacher they have had there. The principal Kelly Madden is also wonderful. Bostonia feels like a big happy family. The Extended Day teachers (after school care) are also wonderful. The Bostonia experience has been great for my children. They excel in reading and writing and they love school. They have made many wonderful friends and memories at Bostonia Elementary.
Bostonia Elementary is a shining star! I have two sons that attend there. One son has a learning disability and the other one was struggling to read. Both teachers have been a great scource of support for them. When my son with the LD began to struggle a Student Support Team including parents was called into action . We decided on modified class work. He won 'Most Improved' award two months later because of our joint effort. My other son's teacher kept encouraging him and helping him in a gentle kind way. She promised he'd be a good reader by year's end. Half way through he won 'Most Improved' award for his class. Here it is middle of May and he's reading fluently! The Principal is a positive and motivating influence. She is greeted with smiles and hugs from students. The Office staff is awesome. Even the janitor is cool!
We just heart that our principal is leaving at the end of this school year....we are so happy and looking for a change. Discipline has not been an issue and many broken promises to the kids.
