I feel that this school can be better by having more inspiring teachers, be more motivated and to stop being negative. On the other hand, students should be motivated and willing to learn because teachers can do so much by having students wanting to learn! I appreciate Ms.Gonzalez, my councelor and Mr.Anderson my teacher because they show so much passion and deep concern for myself and to other students. I think the school can improve by each person individually being more involved and the education and welfare of each student. Sincerely Jacob
The school offers a wide variety of sports, actitivites and events. The number of clubs is tremendous, something for every student. After school tutoring is provided by UCLA's Beyond the Bell program to students who may need additional support. At a time when many schools are cutting the college counselor position, our college advisor is outstanding, and she brings numerous college recruiters from around the country to our students. It's a school with a proud tradition of academic achievement for those who are willing to take advantage of all the opportunities. We'll be 100 years old and proud in 2016. Go Panthers!
I think the academic programs offered at this school are great as long as the students are actively involved they can really learn alot. I believe the motivation should come from home i drive both my 9th and 10th grade sons to school everyday from Bell Gardens because they do not want to transfer to our home school. My 9th grade son is very active in the JROTC and he loves it he could not be happier my 10th grade son is actively involved in GEAR Up Program and many other programs offered at the school.
I think the Magnet Program at Benjamin Franklin Sr. High Sch is a very good program, the teachers are academically stimulating for those students who are there to learn. Sports program is also very good and challenging. All teachers and coaches I have met are right up there with the best. I have a 9th grader on Softball JV, they work em hard.......Range
