Bostonia Elementary School Reviews
Although Bostonia is one the best schools for any child to attend, I am still concerned with the safety of the children walking to and from the school. From Third Ave to the school's crosswalk the lights are unpredictable and don't allow enough time for the kids to cross. Bostonia has a wonderful school crosswalk in front of the school, but I would like to see the school board get involved with more safety for the kids who walk just a block down. There is no speed signs or school & pedestrian signs from Third Ave. The drivers are not concerned with the speed and do not allow the children to complete the crossing of the street before proceeding through the light. Please get involved and care a little more.
Mrs. Pappas is such a great teacher. She is working so hard with my son Jessie along with Ms. Harold. I appreciate all the hard work all staff has done for my son. Thank you so much.
Bostonia is my son's favorite school --- great teachers, friendly staff, and always willing to answer any question. I wish they had after-school math lessons since my son needs a little more help in that material. Special thanks to Mrs. Bobo and Mrs. Papas for all their support with my son.
