My son started at this school in the preschool disabled class when he was 3. They were phenomenal.

Ok..I am confused?...All I have ever heard about all of Hopewell Schools was POSITIVE. Now I am looking to buy a house in Hopewell (Titusville) and BT's score is 7 and 9 depending on where you look! I have heard great positive feedback from Realtors and strangers alike, but reading these reviews are ...  Read more

The previous reviewer is doubtless one of the shills for the school who "tirelessly" avoid the facts. Standardized test scores-- especially in reading, writing, math, and science-- are the best measures available, and by all such measures BT is a mediocre school. "

Worse test scores in the district. No leadership, bad teacher morale, discourages parents from participation, no communication from principle who doesn't even return email. Bullies run amok.

In spite of the all the work of the parents, PTO and teachers, the principal has brought this school down. Bus safety, a sense of community, parent involvement activities and an open atmosphere have been decimated under his leadership. Parents struggle to right this ship.

Great school! Our son is in second grade now, so it's been 3 years. The teachers are young, ambitious and energetic. Expectations are set high, but I have witnessed occasions when I think that problems could have been addressed better. Communication with parents is very good. One thing that Bear Tavern ...  Read more

Yes the scholis old but the age of the building has no impact on what is going on inside it. There are a variety of programs to help all the students achieve and excel. I have 3 children attending the school and all of their teachers this year and in the past have been outstanding.
