    The principle and staff here are the best. They have gone above and beyond many times dealing with my son and came up with a great plan that helped him do great in school.

    As a parent of two current students I can say with no reservation I love this school. The teachers are engaged and eager to help students succeed. My youngest child had some outburst issues in kindergarten and the school bent over backwards to work with him. If it weren't for their hard work love and dedication my little one could have been written off and consigned to a special needs program. Instead he is doing great this year and loves school. My oldest is in the districts accelerated program again due in no small part to the excellent education support and LOVE of the staff of Bauerwood. They also engage with the parents in multiple ways. I recently attended a meeting for fathers called Watchdogs... there were well over 100 dads in attendance. Engaged staff engaging students and parents is an absolute win for everybody!

    Awesome school & teachers have been outstanding. No complaints with any of my 3 children wiith any of the years they attended there & my truly children just flourished there. I would highly recommend Bauerwood.

    A lot of the teachers exceed expectations. Principal seems to care. The problem is the district is extremely political. And many parents can be that way too. Even more challenging is if you need to utilize services to get assistance for your child... can be a bit hap hazard unless you press the point. Overall not convinced this is a great school.

    I have two boys that attend this school both are doing amazing. Each year I see incredible improvements in their abilities. The teachers are phenomenal here and care about their students. I get phone calls and email updates if anything out of the ordinary is happening with my boys. They have exceeded all my expectations.

    My husband and I both feel very blessed to have our children going to Bauerwood. Although this is our first year there and we were unsure of this because our school Maplewood closed. We now know that this was a great opportunity for our children.
