I am very unhappy with the lack of communication between the school and the parents. We are not informed about days off of school or early dismissals. Just today my daughter was sent home 2 hours early for snow (its not even snowing).. how do they know someone would be here to let her in the house? ...  Read more

I believe you have to pay attention to the progress of the school altogether and not just ...  Read more

The school performance has improved greatly over the last couple months with the hiring of a new principal. My daughter loves coming to school now, whereas before, she dreaded it. She says the principal really cares about them, walks around the school and visits them and actually talks to the kids!

My daughter just started this school this past year. I have not been impressed at all with her progress. I am not sure if it is her or the school (teacher). I am so shocked at how much homework she has had. It basically leaves no time for anything once she gets home. I just wonder what all they ...  Read more

We have only been at Bidwell for 2 years & academically I have not been impressed. It seems like many of the kids who are struggling get left behind. What is going on over there? If my son does not get through this year and pass, I will be forced to pull him out of school & home school him to get him ...  Read more
