Bruce Drysdale Elementary Ratings & Reviews

April 24, 2016 Submitted by a parent
My daughter is a kindergartener in the dual language program at BDS. She has had a terrific first year. She knew absolutely no Spanish at the beginning of the year. Now she can read and speak (authentically and fluently) in Spanish...at age 5! She is also reading exceptionally well in English. Her math skills are impressive. I have to give a huge shout out to her teachers, Mrs. Rosello and Mrs. Roscoe. We couldn't be more pleased. Our daughter has the sweetest classmates. The principal deeply cares about the school and the children. She believes in educating and loving the whole child. She values parents' thoughts and opinions, and she values her teachers. The PTO is awesome. So many dedicated families that truly value education and their children. They believe in BDS!

This school is absolutely AWFUL. A "D" rating from the state. My oldest has had 5 teachers over the course of two semesters!! The turnover is ridiculous. No art program. No real communication from the teachers about your child's progress, even if there is an issue. If your children are gifted, then send them elsewhere. My other son tested a level ahead and was recommended for the AIG program, but due to terrible communication internally, can't even get evaluated. They will not challenge your children due to being understaffed and are unable to give any focus to an individual child unless that child is acting out and a "problem" child. The exposure that my kids have experienced is abhorrent- language, violence and sexual innuendo. I chose to move to this area due to it being 'a family friendly area' but if I knew how horrible this school was, I would've chosen a different area to live. As another has said, don't just walk away, RUN away!!

It is an amazing school. My daughter is in the Spanish immersion program and loves it, and we are so impressed with what she has learned already in Kindergarten. The teachers are so caring and available to talk about any issue anytime. We feel so lucky to have Bruce Drysdale as our daughter's education.

This school is a mess, teachers are over worked, and underpaid. It seems as this school is run by nothing but politics and scandal. The administration seems to have an agenda that does not correlate to student achievement. They seem to do things that are so ancient to the education sector. I am moving my child because of the leadership at this school, they only want to hear what they want not what I want as a parent. My voice is not heard at this school. I feel bad for the children at this school, parents keep them away.

This is probably the most loving and friendly school in our county. The principal and staff are outstanding---so dedicated to each child and their education. I love that there are children from all backgrounds at Bruce Drysdale as it is preparing our children for a global world that is awaiting them in the future. It is located right across from Hendersonville High School which also has an excellent reputation. I would highly recommend this school to other parents who value the beauty of diversity and see the benefits of such an environment---and want to see their child loved and valued. Volunteers from the community are very involved and spend time with children who might need a little extra help with reading, math, etc.---many are retired teachers and professionals who have a wealth of knowledge. It is truly a community/neighborhood school at its best. I love this school!
