Bond Elementary School Reviews
My son has attended Bond elementary since kindergarten. He has done poorly all three years that he has been there and my child is fairly bright for his age. I think the teaching methods that are being used, (not so much the material, rather the instructors' approach) could use improvement. I have heard stories of teachers using offensive language to criticize children (bad, stupid, "shut up", "y'all don't want to learn"...etc) Also, the staff have been noted to be disrespectful and quite unprofessional at times. There are teachers who dress inappropriately for a job at an elementary school. The administrative staff pay more attention to my family's non school related endeavors than they do my child's academic performance. They put an exceptional amount of emphasis on punishment rather than constructive reinforcement. There are two outstanding teachers that I can speak for at Bond, Mrs Jenny Williams, (1st grade) and Mr. Dawson (2nd grade). They try hard to work with the student and strive for their success. Also they are respectful to parents' wishes and they are understanding to each child and his family's individual needs and problems. I wouldn't recommend Bond for a first time student. However, school activities and programs are always organized and the ceremonies and student presentations have been quite enjoyable.
My child has attended Bond Elementary since Kindergarten. He has had the best teachers and education. I would not send him to any other school in Leon County. My child is an honor student, who receives gifted services. The administrators have been wonderful at monitoring his progress as well as other students. Keep up the great job, BOND!
Great set of teachers - very - poor administrative leadership - antiquated and lacks the ability to adjust from mistakes or lack of progress. School will continue to decline until total leadership is changed.
