    We have been so pleased with the education that our daughter has received at BPES! Everyone on the staff is involved in my daughter's education. We received daily emails from the teacher letting us know about upcoming events. We were quite impressed!

    We moved to this area and are very pleased with BPES. Lots of opportunities for children and parents to be involved. Academics are strong and we've been very happy with our child's progress.

    We could not be more pleased with our children's education at BPES! From the administration to custodial from teachers to guidance and everyone in between the entire staff is dedicated to making it the most positive learning environment for our children. Mrs. Heltzel IS THE best teacher in the best elementary school!

    My wife and I elected to send our two girls to BPES based upon very strong recommendations from other parents and we are constantly amazed by most everything about the school. The administration is great the parents are supportive and the teachers are the best! Our girls adore their experinece and are appropriately challenged. I'd put this school up against any other in the State of Virginia.

    I have two children attending BPES and couldn't be more thrilled. If you are looking for a school that feels like 'home' look no further. This school is the best in Hanover. You feel the warmth and enthusiasm as soon as you walk in the door. While other schools feel cold this school is full of history and personality.
