Teacher effectiveness: Very ineffective
August 21, 2015
They are absolutely THE WORST teachers in the world. They are a disgrace to the practices of teaching. They are an embarrassment to the practices of teaching.

Amount of homework: Don't know
August 21, 2015
You ONLY have temperamental people assisting the children with their homework who degrade than while the children are trying to complete their homework. So, it does not matter how much homework the school is giving or not giving. It's not doing the students any good when paternal grandparents and certain parents are impatiently crushing the students self esteem when they are trying to do homework.

Absolutely NOT! Quite the CONTRARY. The school degrades a human being and destroys their self esteem, their health, safety, and well-being.

Other than my own two children, NONE of the staff, including the Principal, Vice Principal, and the students have a SHRED of RESPECT for humanity.

The teachers are bully's and, other than MY children, the children are bully's. There is absolutely NO COMPASSION, CARING, or EMPATHY in ANY of the staff or students other than my own children, who, they deserve so much BETTER than to be stuck having to endure going to school in such a BRUTAL, HARSH, and ABRASIVE environment.

It's not a place where children are SAFE! Teachers, staff, and, other parents look the other way and they condone paternal and grand parental CHILD ABUSE at the school Bennett Elementary. I am highly disgraced that my son has to endure being FORCED to to such a disgusting school.

Bennett Elementary is one of the 'old style' schools left in Broward County. It has a staff that cares. The family atmosphere from their wonderful Principal, Chirs Carney to the teachers and the support staff is heartwarming. They have been known as the Broward County Schools 'best kept secret'. THEY ARE THE WAY A NEIGHBORHOOD SCHOOL SHOULD BE!

The school my daughter attends is "Bennett Elementary" we love this school she has been attending since school year January 2010 when she entered kindergarten. The school made us feel very comfortable from day one u. Every teacher she has been a pleasure & according to my daughter "fun to learn". I would recommend any parent who has a choice were their child attends to contact Bennett. My daughter just entered 3rd grade & the school makes it very nice the 1st day we can meet the teacher & also take them to their class.The principle is always available to speak to and also very helpful when it comes to any after school functions the schools might be having movies..etc

My daughter has attended Bennett for 6 years and could not be happier. The teachers and administration greet their students by name in the halls. They deal with funding cuts creatively by sharing special area teachers between schools. The principal also shows respect for the contributions of his staff, encouraging and recognising them continually at school events.

We love this school. The teachers are dedicated and enthusiastic. Principal Carney is kind, focused and loves this school. It shows. Very organized; the entire staff knows my daughter by name. The learning is better than my fancy private I went to in the 70's.

This will be my daughter's second year at Bennett and we love it. The office staff, principal, and teachers are great. Being the parent of a first grader, it's still a learning experience, but a fun one here at Bennett Elementary. They are re-modeling part of the school and the kids are really enjoying the progression of their school. I had my daughter assigned to this school, and drive her 20 mins there and back everyday, and I'm quite happy I did so.

As a parent of 2 grown children who have both graduated from the Broward Public School System I have spent many hours in Broward Schools in various areas of the county. I volunteer at Bennett now and have been so impressed with the 'feel' of the school. From administrators to teachers to school staff to students there is a sense of caring, diversity, security and respect. I am so happy that this is the school I was assigned to and enjoy being a part of it's community.

I have lived in this neighborhood and been a part of this school for many years. Both of my children have attended Bennett. Their key to their success is parent involvement and teacher longevity. Though more than 70% of their students are at 'free lunch' status, they have maintained an 'A' ranking 4 years in a row! I LOVE THIS SCHOOL!

This school is the 'real world'. Students come from all over the world, speak a number of languages, and all receive a fine education. Their ESE or handicapped cluster is mainstreamed into other classes for a shared environment and a better understanding of handicapped children. Discipline is under control and learning goes on here! My kids loved this school.

My son has spent two years at this 'A' school. The first year was excellent, caring supportive staff and excellent academic programs. This year has been dramatically different. The academic programs seem less structured and the staff moral seems way down. They still have some excellent teachers and a very strong PTA. Most disappointing section of the school is the mentally handicapped 'cluster' - those students seem to be left out of the main school ethos and sometimes you get the feeling that no-one is minding that part of the school at all. Overall, a great school but lacking in strong leadership.
