Blue Grass is a huge family! Everyone goes above and beyond for students and families. Parents are very involved, as well as, the community. Great elementary school.

I keep hearing about how the school isn't "big enough" or its not "modern enough." Let me just say this: I'm glad it's not. The teachers and staff are engaged and welcoming. The school does well academically, and I appreciate the old charm about the school. Sure, you could go modern, but why? It's ...  Read more

Try A.L. Lotts or Northshore Elementary (both within a few miles of Blue Grass). You'll discover a more modern administration and PTA that are both open to new ways of thinking and performing for the best interest of your child.

Teachers are very engaged. PTA is active in the school and provides additional funding for STEM lab, computers, and playground equipment. Students seem well-behaved. Small school lends itself to agreat learning environment.

Our opinion of this school is poor. We have been at Bluegrass for multiple years, and have experienced far too many teachers that should have been out the door long ago. Oftentimes, we've been the recipient of teachers that are stuck in vey old teaching methodologies, and that fall far below what most ...  Read more

My family and I relocated here from out of state. We have not had a good experience with this school. I understand that the faculty sticks together as a united front, and that can be a good thing, but not at the expense of the students and their education. I have had negative experiences with my child ...  Read more

I went to tour the school before enrolling my children and discovered such excellent teaching unsolicited. Even the no academic classes were excellent. All I can say is wow!
