    I have 2 kids currently attending this school. I have no complaints great school! Awesome teachers for the most part a couple of teachers can be very strict. Office staff is helpful. I would recommend this school.

    I've really grown to love this school. I understand why the front office and administration has to come off as being sort of intimidating at first. It's like having a strict aunty that ends up being your favorite! I love the structure of the schools leadership the diversity of the students the programs events and extracurricular activities available for the kids. I love it all!

    Parent volunteering needs to be acknowledged better from the principal at Barbara Comstock Morse Elementary. The principal is unappreciative disrespecting and ungrateful. All of the parent volunteers take time out of their days to help students at Barbara Comstock Morse Elementary not just the principals personal favorites. As a volunteer I give my time to my daughters class to show support in the students future and well being that's the important impact our students need.

    Barbara Comstock Morse Elementary needs to focus more on reported repeats of bully issues. The front office staff is rude and haven't any kind of respect for the parents who need assistance.

    Two of my students attend BCM and I love the fact that my students are very happy. Despite of the budget cuts the staff has remained professional and positive. Love the annual carnival!

    My daughter has gon to this school for 4 years. I have nothing but excellent things to say about this school teacher Principal and the rest of the office staff. The kids love the Vice Principal. I have specific stories about things that have happened and how the Principal at the time Mr. Goulden really came through for my daughter.

    I have three children currently attending BCM. We have been at BCM for about 6 years now and I love it. One of my children has a learning disability and I could say that they have gone above and beyond to help me assist my child. For that I am very grateful

    Barbara Comstock Morse Elementary School is an excellent school within the Elk Grove School District that I am so proud my son attends. The strong commitment towards academic excellence demonstrated by the faculty and staff is very impressive. Barbara Comstock Morse Elementary School is an institution that challenges all students to maximize their intellectual cultural and social development as they prepare to succeed in a diverse society. I especially like the uniform policy which instills in each student the importance of professional attire.

    I have two children that attend BCM Elementary and I have been very impressed with education they have recieved.BCM is a school where the children come first. The teachers are very involved with their students and take the time to know each student personally. My children are too young at the point but I am aware that the school does have a band and accelerated program for the students. Volunteering is also a plus at this school so many parents participate in the schools activities. I am overall veyry happy with BCM Elementary.
