I love this school!!! It is not for people who want an easy ride. They raise the bar for both students and parents. The structured but loving environment was exactly what my son needed!
We absolutely love the BenFranklin-Crismon Campus! Our son has been there since Kindergarten. The academic program is accelerated and the teachers/principal are dedicated to the students. My son loves going to school and loves his teachers. This program encourages students to learn the material...not just memorize it for a test. We are blessed to have a program that teaches students in a way that allows them to think through a problem -- not just have one pop up on a computer screen.
Started my oldest child in 2nd grade at BFCS in Gilbert, Loved this school and staff. We moved to the BFCS Power campus because it is closer to our home. I LOVE this school too. There Curriculum is accelerated. If the child drops below a "B" Teachers tutor them until they are back up. The children wear conservative dress code or uniforms. The kids are taught virtues, values and patriotism and they are well mannered. The school only has one fund raising event .. the Fall Festival. They supply the children with the necessities for school, papers, books, pencils etc. Ask yourself why the public schools keep having fund raisers? Why do the parents have to buy supplies for the class? Where is all the MONEY? We get taxed & what happened to all the Lotto money?!!
I am gald I can say that not only my husband and I love Benjamin Franklin Charter School (Crismon Campus), my kids do as well! The structure in the classrooms, back to the basics education and the over all learning environment is set for success! Every staff member there is geared for the for the accademic and self advancements in every student from Kindergarten to 6th grade! With all this my kids look forward to going to school and hate it when they have to miss! I hope I never experience the day where they dread going to school! Benjamin Franklin Charter School is like family, always there for your kids best interest! Blessed to call them my kids school!
My son started this school a few months into the year and really struggled at first. His teacher did a wonderful job to catch him up to the rest of the students. He is only in Kindergarten and it is amazing the things he is doing. My 4 year old daughter can not wait to be joining him at school.
Because the class are great, the staff are very good at their job, and overall my son loves it and talks about school all the time!!
I am so pleased with Benjamin Franklin. My two daughters attend the one in Queen Creek, and we have only good things to say about the school. My kindergartener recited the preamble to the constitution after attending for 1 month... amazing. I love the patriotism that is emphasized. I appreciate the high acedemic standards, the opportunities for parental involvement, and the dress code. The teachers are all wonderful, and the principle is amazing. So grateful for this school.
Franklin is a great school where the students are very successful. Teachers and principal are great. Great discipline, and overall great school
This school is great. I have two sons attending BFCS (5th and 3rd grade) and my husband and I are very satisfied. The curriculum is very good, homeworks are adequate and the Principal, teachers and office staff are always willing to go the extra mile. Gabriela Valenzuela.
I have 2 students in this school and they love it. We are very pleased as parents with the entire experience.
My children love this school. They are excelling in all aspects of learning and they are challenged every day. I feel that this is the best school around to prepare a child for HS and college.
If you like your child to be an overachieving robot and do hours of homework everday. This school is for you.
This really is a great school. The teachers are wonderful, and my children have enjoyed their experiences here!
Overall great school, good teachers, have had a very pleasant experience since day 1. This is the first school I've experienced that really takes control of bullying, and doesn't tollerate it.
My children having been going to Ben Franklin for 9 years I love this school. If you want a great education this is the place to put your child. I love the parent involvment.
I am for the most part thrilled with this school! I don't think the office staff is very informed, or overly friendly, but the academics make up for that! My child is reading, doing math and spelling at a much higher level than friends his age! I don't believe my child would be doing as will as he is if he were at another school! I love to help out and believe there is a high parent involvement at this school! They welcome you into class at any time! Excellent school to attend!
Very impressed with academics. They require a lot of homework, which can be a negative if your child has trouble focusing. Teachers are wonderful. They definitely require respect.
My children have ben going to BF for three years now. We have had little complaint, other than the facilities. We did have an instance last year that we felt deservec a bit more attention by the principal. This is why I rated him slightly lower than the teachers. I felt that the way the way the situation was handled was not fair to all side. My son got what he deserved, so I'm not being defensive. BF, I understand, will be moving next year. this will make our commute from QC considerable farther. As far as academics, BF is solid. We have no complaints. We home schooled for a number of years and found that our children were more successful on a different math program, but this is minor in my opinion.
Only charter school in the area, growing nicely. Much tougher school than Power Ranch Elementary, but my children are doing better at Power Ranch. Liked the teachers well enough.
