Bernardston Elementary School


Hello and welcome to the BES website.

Bernardston Elementary School is where the learning adventure begins for children! We are very fortunate to start with an outstanding and caring school staff to guide children on their journey. Next, our classroom teachers mix in thematic units with hands on opportunities. Then our specialists add enrichment to the week by way of art, music, physical education, our library and technology. “The Friends of BES” is our parent-teacher group that ensures every classroom is provided with a field trip experience each year. BES also offers great after school programs like the CODE Club and Mad Science. We also have great school events like the Turkey Trot, and musical performances during the winter and spring. BES continues to have great visitors such as local astronaut Cady Coleman, and, the marathon team of Dick and Richard Hoyt. This great mix all adds up to a wonderful school experience for children preparing them for the next step in their educational journey, middle school!

Please call the school should you have any questions or would like to schedule a visit.
