    My daughter attended Butler for her entire elementary education and I found that the teachers and the priniciple genuinely care about their students. There is a bit of bullying that has occurred but no school is perfect.

    As a parent of a former student and a former student myself I still find Butler Elementary the best of the best. The education is consistent to what the children need to compete in the 'real' world. My child is now in high school and taking the world by storm with high academic achievement. He would never have done so well if it weren't for the great teaching in the elementary school level at Butler.
