    I am a parent who's child attended Butler Elemlentary school. My child recieved a great start at Butler and I give thanks to his former teachers who were Ms. Shuman Ms. Trappio Ms. Schawver Ms. Glover and his gifted instructor Ms. Nordenhaus. These teachers took the time out with my child and gave him a great start and he is implementing what he has learned at his current institution in Japan. Thanks to all at Butler Elementary!

    I strongly disagree with the parent who rates Butler as a terrible school. A parent should not just rely on the teacher to teach our children. How is it that the parent knew her child could not read yet did nothing about it and continued to wait for the school to teach him a second year? Maybe the parent should spend more time with the child. We as parents need to also teach our children and stop shifting the blame and take responsibility for our mistakes. Butler just like any other school is what you make it. My children love Butler and the teachers and the principal does a great job.

    I have to agree with the parent that says this is the worst school.They dont care about your children or you for a matter.They passed my son at the end of the year knowing that he couldnt read.And passed him on to the next school year now how would you say this was not getting my way?All I wanted was for him to get his education.Now I dont know the background on the other parent but that is my story and I tried to work with the teacher.

    I disagree with a parent who said Butler was the a bad school. Obviously this parent was upset because he/she could not have his/her way. The administration and teachers at Butler are genuinely concerned about the education and well being of all children.
