Our family moved to this school district and bought a home, specifically for the "Great Schools". My Kindergartener listened and watched while his teacher screamed at certain children from her chair. It was half a year of worrying and wondering why my child no longer loved or even liked school, and for him to finally tell me about how it makes him nervous when his teacher screams, but we stuck it out. As a 1st grader my student was bullied and harassed by his teacher, and apparently was "too white" for this teacher. She even called him a bobble head for being afraid to use his words with her, at our first meeting in October, when she finally reported to me that my child had an "F". My student became afraid for the first time ever about going to school with this teacher shouting and bullying certain students. The most unacceptable part occurred when she had never communicated any issues and never reported the "F" my student had from Aug-Oct.. She told me my child did not know how to correctly talk, walk, or do anything for that matter! What a bunch of lies, my student had excellent grades from his previous school and absolutely no health issues. We were new to the area, but when I filed a report against this teacher for discrimination, the school board took NO ACTION in protecting the civil rights of my child. We currently homeschool and are very disturbed by the amount of complaints we have heard from others who were "Not from around here" and have removed their child from this discriminatory environment. My student is excelling in homeschool, but it is really disappointing that he can not attend his district school. What a bad choice we made to move to the Blue Grass district.

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 not about the look of the school, as much as it is about the character of the school. By the way, my child loves going to BG.

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.
