My 4th grade son has been enrolled at Black Mountain Elementary since Kindergarten. The school may look a little dated but don't judge a book by it's cover. All the teachers my son has had are very experienced - one almost 20 years and still shows genuine interest enthusiasm. When he started we had ...  Read more

We have been at BMES for 7 years and continue to be amazed at the professionalism and commitment the teachers, principal, and support staff bring to the school every day. BMES has high parental involvement and an active PTO. It's a great school.

We've been at BMES for 2 years now after switching from another elementary school in the Cave Creek district. Thank goodness we switched, our son was falling behind at his previous school...after only 1 year at BMES he was finally reading at grade level and excelling in Math. In his second year, he ...  Read more

Black Mountain Elementary under Mr. Owsley's leadership is the best elementary in Arizona! The teachers are amazing and the afterschool program is awesome! The school is fun, safe and full of learning opportunities and so very glad my child attends BMES!

Our school is an important part of my community. It is large enough where there are many extra curricular activites yet small enough where everyone seems to know each other. Our 2 children love BMES. We wouldn't have it any other way!

We relocated from Chicago neighborhood to BMES last fall... both daughters adapted to new class structures, they were both in excelling classes in IL. Would love to see CCUSD get on board for recognizing and implementing excelling classes. Overall- the school is involved with students and parents.

I can't believe the last reviewer! BME should have 5 stars overall. My son also attended school at BMES since 1st grade and it has improved in many ways. The sixth grade classes did have over 30 students per class but not the 36 that the last reviewer wrote. The teachers were great! They did not ...  Read more

I can't believe BME has 4 stars overall. My son attended K-6 there and it has really gone down hill in my opinion. The extreme right led by the local newspaper vote down EVERYTHING the schools try to do and its taking its toll. Results: 36 kids in my son's class this year, overwhelmed unorganized ...  Read more
