Bates Elementary School Reviews
I have 2 children going to Bates, and we love it!! My oldest is on IEP, she was a 1 lb. preemie. The accomodations for her are wonderful. I've seen such improvement in her, and it has to do with the wonderful teachers. Her teacher this year is amazing. Salem has many schools for kids, we fell in love with this school. The school is so clean and is so pretty inside and out. Every Friday is spirit day, and our school comes together as a community when disaster strikes. Last year we had a child that passed away and the school pulled together to help this family at this difficult time! It gave everyone a sense of community. We also do a coat drive each and every year. This school is wonderful and I'm so glad my kids go there, they are learning acedemically but also learning valuable life lessons.
