    I am a single parent of ethnicity. This school was the most amazing experience for my child an I. I couldn't feel more blessed to have known such a wonderful principal and the Kindergarten & 1st Grade Teachers that we experienced are such warm and caring people. Even after my child and I left they still went the extra mile to send a letter. I was brought to tears as this staff including Administration was so caring and providing of all educational and emotional aspects. We are in a better place because of their support.

    I think Butterfield is a fabulous close knit community school for children to grow academically socially and emotionally. The parent involvement is exceptional. And the staff communication is great. This is a large school as far as the others in the district are concerned and the administration does a fantastic job with managing our childrens futures. We couldn't be happier raising our children in this community and this wonderful school.
