School is ok for under achievers but if you want your child to evolve, this is not the place. The State has taken over this school. It will get worst before it gets better. Also there is a traffic issue. Principal is rude and non-professional. There are some great teachers there in the lower grades. PTA is strong and there are no sports to get involved in. Inglewood School District is horrible!

I went to bennett kew for the 2011-2012 school year. I loved it. I was a straight a student with 34 people in my class my teacher had a tutoring program and almost everybody had a's. it does need more maintenance more aides but they got some good teachers. There were a lot of fights but its who u hang around with. I love bennett they really do care. I loved my teacher she was awesome and also everyone too. I think they need repair and a model but other than that bennett kew is awesome.

I am so fed up with this school, the staff and the principle are rude, some of the teachers talk to the children like they are not students, my child is scared of his teacher and this is a problem. Also that principle is rude!!

Bennett-Kew is really trying to include parents into everything they are doing. I recently attended their Hispanic Heritage Program where the students, Principal and PTA worked together to give the history behind the celebration of Hispanic Heritage month. The students were dressed in authentic attire and read their information cards very confidently. The program concluded with a dance from the leap program and food provided by one of the parents, through PTA. My child was very excite to get a chance to perform. Also, PTA and the school have done a wonderful job putting together the Parent University program, which they won a grant to do. Now, they are providing ESL classes with math, computer and nutrition classes soon to follow. If parents want to get involved with their child's education, then they should come to Bennett-Kew and sign up for PTA. They welcome parent volunteers and really seek our input. This is my child's second year their and we love how excited our child is, everyday, to attend this school.

I agree this school needs a new principal. She is very rude and one hispanic parent complaint she was pushed by her also some staff members are rude aswell. They are careless when it comes to injuries. My son got injured and did not notify me, he came back with a bruise and dried blood on his chest. The teachers are rude and will embarrassed your child infront of other classmates.

Bennett-Kew has a great PTA Unit that works well with the administration, teachers, parents, staff and students. This year, the PTA sent every grade-level on a field trip, provided computer classes with outstanding projects to complete and a host of family/community events. I do not know a lot of schools currently provided the same enrichment programs as this school site. My child has never been more excited about going to school then he has this year. He was most excited about going to the Science Lab to learn about meal worms. Anytime my son tells me to get up at 6am to get ready for school, that means the school is doing a great job. I would strongly recommend this school to parents who are looking for teachers and staff that genuinely want your child to do well. I also heard they are working on creating a Parent University, which will provide classes and training for parents on the standards and homework assistance. Thank you Bennett Kew PTA and Staff. My son had a wonderful school year.

My daughter was skipped in kinder and then fell behind in the third grade. Benntte did nothing to help her. I decided to change my daughters school and the new school found that my child who was going into 5th grade with a reading level of a 2nd grader. Her Teacher at BK knew she was behind but just told me to have her read more at home. When I moved her to a new school district with teachers who actually care. Her new teacher spent two weeks with her while she was off track and did extensive reading intervention. She brought my daughters reading level up to grade level in 2 weeks which is far more than her Bennte Kew 4th grade teach did her whole year in 4th grade. Bennete Kew really needs to step it up. You could not pay me to send my child to that school.

I really don't get how people can give this school five stars. It deserved five stars back in the days when I was a student there, but not now. Maybe 3 stars now. Maybe I just have higher standards. My son if extremely bright and it is not being academically challenged here.

My daughter is currently a 1st grader at Bennett-Kew. I am very happy thus far with my daughter's progress and learning. Her teachers have been great thus far, and I love the 22 max. students in a classroom which you do not easily find in other public schools in the area.

I am a Parent and a Alumni of this school. And you know there is something profound going on here if you can come back and still see some of the same administration still there from 20 years ago. My daughter has been to two different schools until finally we have made Bennett-Kew our home. She says she doesn't want to leave and wants to make sure she graduates from this school in particular. after 4 years in elementary my daughter is now on the Principals Honor Roll! Who could ask for anything more. The teacher's dedication to there students is astounding and the cirriculum truely prepares these children for Junior High or Middle School. I have complete faith that these teachers will have my child ready for the next level.

The academic program is excellent. The teachers are very experienced professionals who are dedicated to the students.Numerous teachers have been at Bennett-Kew for decades and that's very reassuring. There aren't may extracurricular activities to speak of, so if you have a child that seeks those things they will have to look elsewhere. There is a good amount of parent involvement due to the fact that parents' are openly and readily accepted to lend a helping hand in any area. I would definitely recommend this school.

Quality curriculum for students and parents seeking to obtain a strong foundation in the basics (reading,writing,mathematics). The curriculum is weak in providing instructional opportunities for science,social studies, and art.

Bennet-Kew is a great school. I attended it as a child and my daughter is currently attending it now. Almost every teacher that worked there when I was going attending is currently working there. My daughter even has my kindergarten teacher, Mrs Watanabe.

I think that Bennett Kew is a wonderful school and my children are receiving a quality education that will prepare them for the future. The test scores are consistently high, the teachers are well equipped and caring and there is a sense of community.

As a former student, it's good to see the level of excellence hasn't waivered. A few of the teachers who taught there when I was a child are still there, either teaching or filling other great positions. The students are held accountable and the expectations are never lowered. The campus is clean and serves as a template for how schools should respond to students' needs.

Bennett Kew is a great school with test scores to prove it. Even with outstanding academic success, I would like to see more student extracurricular activities. Embracing inventive ideas will further boost the self-esteem and confidence of our children.
