Very good, especially as I see lots of commitment to continued growth and change to become even better. This year Bonillas Traditional Magnet has been honored by receiving an award from Magnet Schools of America as a School of Distinction, and we have earned a high B rating for the second year in a row.

This school is phenomenal. My blind daughter started out here and her aide, Ms. Stacy Roads, has gone above and beyond the call of duty to ensure my disabled daughter receives the best education. The staff is fantastic. A real family school. I am so glad I found this school.

The teachers and staff at this school are very dedicated to the academic achievement of the students. They care for and support each individual child and work with the families to provide much needed support.

My daughter went to this school 2 years ago and I thought I had made a good decision taking her there because of the strict rules and "involved principal" but I began to realize that this school lacks teaching techniques and as strict as it seemed by daughter got lost at the school for an hour. The front office staff is very rude.

Unfortunately, this school has fallen very low over the past 4 years. They do not teach our children what they need to excell they are m ore worried about AIMS testing. Parents are expected to teach and do homework I am fine with participating in my child's education but it's a lot more than that I am picking up (and have been for the last 2 years) a lot of slack. Classes are over crowded & Each teacher makes up their own rules they expect PARENTS to follow.. lol if I didn't sign it in the school agreement or if it's not in the handbook I for one am not forcing my child to follow it especially when I do not agree with the rule. Some teachers are on real power trips! It's very unfortunate.. Another thing that is VERY serious is the bullying that goes on in every grade; and Bully's are NOT taken seriously and it's awfulI have had to go to the school & speak to them about it multiple times a year. Thank goodness one of my children is going to middle school so it's the last year & my other child is gifted & can handle inadequate teachers.. Find a better magnet school for your child, this has not been a good experience.
