My 6 year old daughter just completed 1st grade and is excited about starting 2nd grade. Never missing a day of school she was always very excited to get up in the morning wondering what wonderful things she would be learning at school. Compared to other schools Banyan is one of the best. I am also comfortable leaving her in a place where I know she will be safe.
Banyan Elementary school is great. They have awesome teachers. My son is 11 and he has been going to school there for over 6 years. I am glad, that he is going to go there for his 6 grade class as well.
I have a 10 year old son in 5th grade & a 6 year old daughter in 1st grade. I see the difference from Banyan compared to other elemantries. Teachers are greatly involved and will call you if they deem it neccessary. They have higher standards & expect more from their students which in turn pushes the students, parents & teachers to work together. I love the location & the fact that the fire dept do watch the kids walking home from school. My daughter & son were arguing and a couple of firemen ran out cause they heard her screaming. I don't plan on changing schools til my next child is out of Banyan also.
We have a duaghter in first grade who attended last year with Mrs. Little for kindergarten. We are very happy with what our daughter has accomplished so far with this Banyan school. I think safety at the school should be looked at a little closer.
This school is a great school. It has many facilities to help children learn a lot more at their own pace. For kids that need more challenge, they are exceled in their learning environment and the kids that need more attention that learn at a slower pace get that attention. Their test scores for api are very high. As a mattar of fact banyan is the number one school in its district. They also care about their children and are more secure and stable with their security system. I always felt safe with leaving my child there. Another thing I loved was their day car facility.
I have had a very positive experience this year with my Kindergarden child. I am very impressed in everything she has learned this year. Also, it nice to see her excited about school. Banyan has a very friendly staff that is easy to approach and they are dedicated to our kids.
Banyan is a great school, with a lot of school spirit and active parents.
Banyan Elementary School imediately gives a positive impression by the way the landscaping and building arrangments are. Upon entering the sizeable quad area, i was impressed with the cleanliness as well as the organization. The first grade teacher greeted us with a welcoming smile. She had decorated her room wonderfully. The classes my son recieved were well prepared and age appropiate. The outdoor field and recreation were great as well. Adaquate monitoring of the children during recess time. overall, i would give Banyan Elementarw School a big thumbs up, 4 stars. Wendelin family
This is a great school and enables students at different levels in some grades have certain classes depending on their level in that subject. It is too over protective though. The proctors stop children from having any fun whatsoever. They recieve sitations for 'touching' each other such as a simple pat on the back! Children are suppose to be able to run on the playground or blacktop!
Banyan has excellent test scores and a good group of teachers. The principal is good, but it seems like he 'bends with the wind' over some student issues. Overall the students test well but the school seems to be lacking in the social control of students on the playground. We've had many issues regarding playground incidents. Overall it's a good school though.
