Well back in 2011 I had the best principle who cared about the students and faculty members. She always put us first! I'm sorry for all the little kids that have the new version of principle 2.0.

Teacher effectiveness: Disagree

THEY DO NOTHING BUT TEACH!! THEY DONT TELL THEM NOT TO PICK ON SOMEONE OR NOT TO BULLY SOMEONE.


Amount of homework: no rating

Some kids need homework and some don't. Some are really stressed out, even for a 7 year old

Excellent school always awards students for their academic achievements and behavior. My granddaughter attends and is 4th grader and has achieved many awards.

I am not too happy about the school or the teacher teacher my son has. The school does nothing about bullying, and the teacher just wants to put my son on medication. Instead of finding another way to help him he has not had a problem before.

It used to be good and parents and students were proud of it but now you have a principal who doesn't care about the students and doesn't care how the teachers treat the students. You go in to complain the student is not relating at all to the teachers way of treating her that she has brought an A B student down to failing because she doesn't grasp this new common core stuff and the teacher does not encourage her but finds fault with everything about her, She has not had one good thing at all to say about the student, the student comes home talking about how stupid she is and how none of the children or the teacher likes her. The school board says it is up to the principal if she wants to change the room and the principal could care less about the student only how she looks over all to the school board. I have not heard much good said about this school lately and it's a shame cause other clay country have a good reputation.

The first 2+ years were awesome. Great teachers every year - terrific staff. UNTIL!! We now have a new principal who "rules" CEB. If it's not her idea, it won't float. Parents have little input. She gives us lipservice, but truly doesn't listen. Problems brought in front of her are brushed off. Ideas brought to her are tabled until they are of little use. From a school we "loved" to a school we are "tolerating" until 6th grade graduation. Still love each and every one of the staff..... Just have a huge problem with the principal. I am not just a disgruntled parent. This is a legitimate issue. Liked: Disliked:

The way I see it, there are 3 problems with this school. 1. Principal 2. Lunch 3. Handicapped parking Let's start with lunch...... I've seen dozens of salads thrown away without being touched! Even more food simply stirred around on the tray and then tossed. Although the lunches are nutritious, they don't appeal to kids. Give them choices and they won't waste so much food. Handicapped parking. There are only 2 handicapped parking spots available at parent pickup. Very often a car without a hangtag or license permit will be parked there. Nobody enforces handicapped parking! The principal. This lady rules with an iron fist. Parents trying to be involved are blown off. She makes all the decisions, much to the frustration of the parents and faculty. She steps in and takes charge of every event and generally gets in the way. Monitor handicapped parking, change up the lunch menus to things the kids will eat and replace the principal and Charles E Bennett will be a 5 star school.

My son has been going to CEB for the past 4 years , and just love it. The teachers are great and they care about each child. The office staff is just great. I know that we are going to miss the staff that is leaving this year. Keep up the Good Work CEB...
