    I think this is one of the two face school systems EVER!!!! They rather take up the Parents Time and cause Harassment to the Parents then provide the best options for the chid to Learn when the child is struggling. Instead of taking the Blame for Poor teaching they rather blame it on the Parents and Make Idle Threats...

    This school is a good school. I'm now a freshman at BHS but went to BES. It was great but that's just the school. It was not in a good location and to the previous rater they built a new school beside the Middle school. My little sister is in 3rd grade and at the beginning of the year she was struggling. It's now close to christmans break and she is doing great. To me this is a one of the best in South Goergia!

    My child has a wonderful teacher. The principal and assistant principal seem to really care about their children. I am not pleased with the location of the school but hopefully that is about to change.
