Moved from OC to Corona. Let me say that Ben Franklin is a great school! Academically is one if the best schools my kids have ever attended. My kids have learned so much and they love their new school as we'll. The teachers are amazing!

This school is absolutely wonderful. My daughter is a GATE student and that program has done a great job of challenging her, but at the same time, if she becomes overwhelmed, we can always stop the extra GATE work and still feel confident that she is getting a good education. My child has loved every teacher she has had and we all appreciate the hard working and very involved principal. The staff are all doing a fantastic job and I have to say the only thing that needs work are the parents. These kids have how to behave in a line down since kindergarten, but the adults for whatever reason have a difficult time with it. But this amazing school is always working to alleviate that issue as well, the best they can. This school is our favorite part of our community.

Ben Franklin is an excellent school for academic achievement and parent involvement along with many other attributes. I do have to say though many of the teachers play favoritism and that is not fair to the other children. The teachers need to give the other students a chance for awards instead of giving awards to the child whose parents are teachers, principles or room moms that are friends with the teachers. Everyone knows this INCLUDING the students.

We recently moved our kids to this elementary school from another school district in OC. After being at this school for 6th months, we are pleasantly surprised how great their principle and teachers are. They encouraged and promoted our kid's learning skills by identifying their strengths and continue to promote learning with encouragements

Please note there is a new principal as of 2010 and she is amazing so far. Any reviews on the principal before then should be ignored. We've been there for 3 years and I've had a great experience this year with the new principal and the things she's instilling. We have the choice to switch for a gate program but we're staying because we're very happy. I'm very impressed with "Stand Up 2 Bullying" program.

I may be biased because the last school my son went to was Todd Elementary School, which is the most technologically advanced school in the district, but I believe it is more than that. Franklin claims to have knowledge and learning as its number one goal, yet my son has been repeating what he learned at Todd last year. Also, I've seen his work and I believe his teacher lets him slide on things within his work that will ultimately have a negative affect on his future academics. I also have a problem with the fact that the teacher lets the students skip lessons to help her file. If I had a choice, I would have kept my son in Eisenhower when he was overloaded there, or, ideally, Todd Elem.

Principle is a very poor publicspeaker. Neither the Principle or VPP are 'motivational'. There is a lack of understanding where the school money goes (from PTA). The school lacks proper disciplinary handling when needed. The list goes on and on.

Are you a parent that will keep in touch with your child's teacher? If so, this is a good school. They want parents watching and helping them help children. School policies and rules are enforced and this sometimes can be upsetting to us parents. However, they have them in place to maximize our children's learning and maintain a safe place. This school is wonderful.

This is a wonderful school, but parents need to know that the staff means it when they say they want you involved. Their Parents are Responsible Program means parents must attend Parent Information Night, Open Houses, meetings on your child. etc. They track whether parents attend. The principal and assistant principal have even made surprise visits to homes on evenings and weekends when parents were not being responsible for attending. This staff cares and it shows.

The staff is dedicated to their focus and determination that they will succeed in maintaining and meeting the high standards set for the school, the students, the parents, and themselves. It is clear the principal, Mr. Jason Scott, is child focused, organized, and works collaboratively with staff. As a parent, I am extremely happy having my chilidren attend the school

The school has a dedicated staff. Parents are required to be involved in various aspects of their child's education or you get letters telling you that you must be involved. They want parents knowledgeable of their child's activities. School policies and procedures are strictly enforced. Great looking school.

This is my daughter's first year at Franklin Elementary. (She's in the fourth grade) We love the school's emphasis on making learning -priority number one. We think it's great that the school has the parents be involved in their child's learning. We were pleasantly surprised that the principal at this school takes a great interest in the children's learning and holding parents responsible for helping their kids to learn. Our daughter came from a school where she was on the principal's honor roll almost every month and easily bored because she wasn't being challenged in her learning. Well that has changed for the better here at Franklin. She's still a great student, but cannot say she's bored with the school work. She's being challenged and enjoys going to school. We want to thank the principal - Mr. Scott and all the great teachers at this school. Diaz Fam.

My son when here during his Kindergarten and 1st Grade years. I found the school to be exceptional in helping the children to acquire the necessary skills to stay current with and exceed the State's Standards testing. I wholehearted recommend this school to any concern parent.
