I was so worried when my oldest started school last year, but Babcock has been so helpful and welcoming. The teachers are the best and the office staff also. They really get to know every student.
This school need 3 things to improve the safety of the chlidren attending Babcock. First the a cross walk, the students have no way of crossing the street safely. Being that the school is surrounded by auto body shops. Second a sidewalk, to allow the access to their school. third and final a parking lot for parents drop off and pick up students in a safe and timely manner. Is that to much to ask for. Thank you
