    Bernon is an excellent school both my kids have gone there since kindergarden through 5th grade. Mrs. Tinknell has done a wonderful job focusing on education. I only wish I was able to attend that elementry school.

    As a parent of a child in the 5th grade I was rather surprised to see the rating at 5! Since Principal Tinknell has been in command I can honestly state a positive change in this school. My has been attending since K. They have no tolerence for bad behavior and saftey in very important to them. Most of all the kids and teachers are the best. I could go on and on but you get the idea!!
