5/26/2011parentIn response to the post about paying for kindergarten, you are dead wrong about it not being worth it. I do in-home child care and have some kiddos that go half day, so I opted to pay for my daughter to go full day. If you put what she learned up against what the half day kids learned you would see a day and night difference. The full day children have more time to work on the skills they will need to be successful. How much can these half day kids learn in 3 hrs? They alternate between recess, art, gym, and music each day so they only get roughly two hours of instruction. However I do feel $250 a month is excessive for a district that had a rather large surplus last year. Especially when they milk parents for ever possible penny they can. The PTO desperately needs a clue. Other then that it is a wonderful school and it is in your child's best interest to attend the full day kindergarten. I felt my daughters education was worth it.
10/19/2009parentWe are new there this year and they have imbraced us making my daughter feel so good about herself and school. This is a GreatSchool.
9/10/2008parentI know some of the other reviews have stated that there were 'too many children' and that the class sizes were too large, but my experience has been quite the opposite. My daughter (in first grade) has only 19 children total in her class. That's perfect, if you ask me!
5/29/2008parentThere are too many students. Needs more teacher assistance because one teacher can not help each student especially with kindergarters!
5/30/2005parentSocially this school is good, but educationally it is lacking. To many students, and not enough teachers. I know that this page says 20 students per teacher, but both my boy s classes have 26 students with one teacher. The school has a half day kindergarten; with the option to pay for full day (full day includes one extra recess, lunch, and music, not worth the amount they charge, if you ask me).
6/13/2004parentI have one child in third grade, and three others who have gone on to high school and college. Bierbaum prepared them well. The teachers are excellent, the discipline is fair, and there are plenty of kids so that everyone can find a friend. Yes, it is a huge school, although the class sizes are no larger than the Catholic schools in the area. We feel that Bierbaum has greatly enriched our children's lives, and is an asset to our community.
4/29/2004parentI have one child that has left Bierbaum and three others that remain there. My experience with this school has been great. I think it's a great school and all of my children are excelling.
1/28/2004parentEntirely too many children and class sizes are ridiculous. 26 children with one teacher, no aid, in a Kindergarten class is just not conducive to learning.
9/23/2003parentNot enough teachers per students... especially in the lower grades...when kids learn basics of reading, writing and math.
