11/27/2011parentMs Brown is the new principal and I thinks she is doing a get job with our children. And Bess T Shepherd does not have a pto no more. We are thePTA now and we have 98 members and all of us is helping with the school to be better. Plus we have the best teachers and others staff to be the best in what they do. Me as a parent and a PTA member we put in alot of work. So I think our school should be rated better than a 3. Our school learns alot from the staff, and the teachers are great too, they go out the way for the children and my child is smart and I love her teacher, she is great. I think its sad that our school don't get the right credit they deserve, we have lots of smart children that needs credit. I don't understand way they are not known

11/20/2009parentI am very happy with this school. The principal is great, the teachers are fantastic and the curriculum is just what my son needed.
11/19/2009teacherI love teaching at Bess T. As a related arts teacher, I teach every child in the school. Our children and parents are wonderful and that makes going to work every day a pleasure.
11/17/2009parentI transferred my son to Bess T. because of the diversity of the school. I have been particularly pleased at the level of communication from the teachers and administration at the school. It is very evident that this school puts students achievement (both academic and personal) first. I am so glad that I made the decision to put him at Bess T. I think that he will have a great foundation to build upon as he continues through elementary school and future education pathways.

10/30/2009parentMy daughter loved going to school at Bess T. She had fabulous teachers. Ms. Newson and Mrs. Ott are two of the best teachers any of my kids have ever had. What I like most about the school is the cultural and economic diversity of the student body.
4/30/2009parentMy twins have attended BTS since kindergarten, it's a great place to learn and grow at the same time
10/29/2008parentmy daughter has attended BTS since kindergarten, i absolutely love this school, granted we've had our share of problems but with the other students there. BTS has exceeded my expectations really with just minor things that I have brought to their attention and so far so good. The teachers are great also,but I personally miss the old principle,I could always talk with her and we work out whatever came up.
10/3/2008parentMy daughter has been a student at BTS since Kindergarden. She is now in the 5th grade and is in the gifted program, reading on the 7th grade level, an avid writer and test in the upper 15% on TCAP. The teachers and administration are committed and dedicated to excellence in learning. BTS is a diverse school with many positive attributes.
9/28/2008parentI pulled my Son from BTS school for his 4th grade year (08-09) His 3rd grade year was 'The worst year in his life' and his self-esteem was destroyed by constant bullying .One year has done so much damage to my child. The principle is the root of of the problem at this school.
9/26/2008parenti home school my kids now.so they didn't have to go there anymore.my kids would get hart at school from other kids, and the principal never called me. my kids didn't wont to go back their this year.
8/8/2007parentBess T. Shepherd has a wonderful academic programs as well as amazing parent involvement. My son did attend K there for the first part of the grade then we ran into an issue with the school principal and I enrolled him somewhere else. However due to the wonderful teachers and the entire teaching prospect there I will be allowing him to try again hopefully without any interference from this principal. As far as extracurricular activities they are equally amazing a new thing everyday of the week and the PE coaches are great!!!
