We moved from out of state and my daughter went to Bonsack. We moved again 2 years later so our experience was short. Compared to where we came from and where we went Bonsack gets 1 star. My daughter who attended 3rd and 4th grade had a horrible time. She literally came home from school and did homework until bedtime except for dinner. She was frustrated and cried all the time. No child should have that amount of homework. We tried to get the teachers/administrators to help and they flat out refused. The teachers could have cared less about her. It was miserable! I don't think we fully realized the extent of the problems until we moved. My daughter enjoyed 5th grade at her new school. She went from Cs and Ds to As and Bs. Homework was minimal and she learned the material easily. The minute she slipped in one class the teacher contacted me to set up tutoring. Before school after school during school whatever was needed. I was amazed at the difference. No more struggling. I'm so glad we moved out of there.
I only attended Bonsack for the last semester of my 5th grade year and it made my parents regret letting me go there. The first day I arrived at the school my teacher sent home a list of complaints about me. She also disliked me in her class and would never help me. Along with this she told me that I was going to fail my SOL tests which I passed most of them with a perfect score. I am now a student at William Byrd High School and love it but I regret everyday I was at Bonsack. Roanoke county schools are great just not Bonsack. To add on with the poor teaching all the students were hard noses and wealthy. I did move from Northern Virginia so coming from a wealthy area wasn't really the problem but everyone was in a click and did not like newcomers. This school has some serious growing up to do.
This is our second year at Bonsack and we are in love with the school and the teachers. I've always wanted to have my child go to the same school system I grew up in. However after seeing the opportunities at Bonsack I am so glad we didn't move.
My grandsaughter goes to Bonsack and she thinks it is the greatest. She lost her dad 2 weeks before starting kindergarten. It was very diffecult for her at the beginning but the teachers and staff really helped her a lot. She was only 5 and now she is 8 and in the 3rd grade. I don't think she could have been in a better place than Bonsack Elementary.
School is awesome. Teachers are caring and concerned always ready to help. I am very happy with this school.
This is supposed to be one of the best in Roanoke County. I was amazed at the demeanor in which the teachers treated the children. You constantly hear the children being yelled at. I would reconsider if choosing this school.
Bonsack is an outstanding school in a great part of Roanoke County. My child has been challenged and taught by committed caring teachers.
We moved to Roanoke from NC during the middle of the school year. My daughter is in first grade and was assigned to Mrs. Francisco's class. She is an incredible teacher and we were/are so blessed to have her teach our daughter. The school is awesome. The principal is caring concerned and approachable. This experience has been the best part of our move. Bonsack is excellent!
