William B. Bimat Elementary School9

Bakersfield, CA | Kern County

Bimat is a gem of a school! It is the smallest school in the best school district in Bakersfield. My children are in 2nd and 3rd grade and are thriving. The teachers and staff are amazing and very involved. It's great walking into a school and everyone knows your name. This school just received Distinguished school by the State of CA due to the amazing teachers and academics. If you want your child to go to a school where parents and teachers truly care about you child then this is the school!

I have continued to transfer my boys here since we moved out of the boundaries. The teachers are caring and qualified, and the students are well-supported by their families. When they have student office elections there are so many kids running the posters cover the cafeteria. I think that says a lot about how motivated the kids, parents, and teachers are.

My son went to Bimat the 2011-2012 school year and was in 1st grade. His class had two teachers that job shared. I don't feel like he got the attention he needed to do his best. They were short with him and pushed him to the side. Nothing like the school he's at now in Colorado. The teachers were nice, the office staff was nice and the teacher that helped him with his reading was amazing.

This school is one of the Best, if not the Best, Elementary Schools In Bakersfield. The Class sizes are small and all of the teachers have above average credentials. The afterschool program and events they have for the kids are fantastic! My son has gone here for the last 3 years and i have not had one problem. The overall environment and safety of this campus is outstanding.

This is one of the few top schools in town. There are probably 60 - 80 elem. schools in town and there are only a handful with top scores, top teachers, and high curriculum. Bimat is one of theses few. Good environment. Most of the time, challenging.

I have taught at three schools in two districts, and Bimat is by far the best! The principal, secretaries, and counselors truly care about the kids. The teachers work hard, coming early, staying late, and working weekends. Morale is alway high! In addition, the parent involvement is wonderful, and makes Bimat a great place to work.

We just moved to Bakersfield when I enrolled my son to William Bimat Elem. I was a bit hesitant because it was a brand new school and I didn't have any idea about it's curriculum and faculty at all. My son was entering 3rd grade and that he didn't know anyone from the school. Many days/months passed and I saw that he didn't even had a hard time coping up. I saw the big difference in his study habits and how he enjoys going to school every single day. I myself had adjusted really fast. This school has a very excellent Principal and a very talented and skilled staff. I am very thankful to have found this school. I also salute the very high involvement of parents in different activities and so with volunteering in the classroom. Bimat is a great school.
