    Mrs. McDainels is the 4th grade reading teacher and I must say her dedication has surpassed my expectations. I'm very please with the amount of assistance offered as well as the aftercare programs kids including the FCAT prep saturday school. I converse with my daughter teachers on the regular and could not be more please with Bunch Park Elem. =)

    Bunche Park Elementary is a small school Public School that offers the benefits of a Private School. It a wonderful thing as teachers get to work with students One on One. The teachers work very hard with these children and are always willing to work with parents. Bunche Park is a great choice if you are looking for a school with less students in classroom per teacher. The Principal is very nice. I am happy with my son's learning success at Bunche Park. Thanks to Teachers and staff at this Elementary School.
