    I wish teachers taught more and they did not overfill the lower grade classrooms so much and then force parents to teach their children what the teacher does not have "budget" for. Then they label kids as under-performing because they were unable to pay attention....perhaps if classrooms were less than 32 students in 1st grade there would be improvement. I am not happy with the outcome and see why my neighbors do not send their kids here. I am considering home schooling. Not to mention the office staff is uncaring and rude.

    This is one of the best schools around public or private. Many parents get upset with the teachers for holding the students to such high standards but the truth is this school is fair and not doing grade inflation. There RTI program makes reaching the standards accessible to every student gifted or special needs. The staff truely care about kids and the principal is so understanding and fair. This school truely teaches kids unlike other area schools that let the parents do all the work here the teachers will help your child. Don't pay for a private school or think the northern schools are better because the scores are higher (parents and tutors raise those scores) at Baldy View the teachers teach and the children actually learn.

    I have found that the academics at this school for my 1st grader is above what she was receiving at a local private school. I am glad I made the choice to move her.

    This is an awesome school. The teachers really care about the kids. They are very responsive and my kids love attending school there.

    My children have attended Baldy View for many years. In my experience it has always been a great place to be not just for my children but for me also. The staff is one of the best. I would not change anyone. They are always ready and willing to help.

    My daughter came to the 2nd grade here from another district and she was far below grade level. After a half semester she was doing great and scored awesome on her test scores which landed her a spot in the 3rd grade G.A.T.E. Class. From my experience here there are alot of extracurricular activites at this school as well as music arys and sports if your child is interested.
