My son has been attending Ben Gamla for the past 4 years. The quality of the instructors and administration is outstanding at this A+ school. My son receives top quality education in a nurturing environment conducive to learning at this public charter school. The Principal knows all her students by name and really cares for each and every one of them. The school has a rigorous curriculum with the appropriate amount of homework. I highly recommend this school to any parent looking for the very best education for their children.
Love the school, teachers and leadership! Quality all around! The principal really does know each child. They are firm, but loving and everything I could hope for in a school!
My school is awesome and we have the best teachers in the whole state of Florida!!
Principal Mrs Miller personally and from memory knows each child, their name and their strengths and weaknesses . Let's see another principal in Broward meet that standard. This school is an A school and does it for less $$$ per student than any public school in the state. My wife and I would walk through fire and water for Sharon Miller. She truly exemplifies pure self sacrifice for the community and the children. The teachers and staff have exceeded our wildest expectations.
Our kids started in Ben Gamla since the opening in 2007 and we are very happy witht the school, staff, and people in general. Everybody knows who you are and knows your kids. Mrs Miller is an excellent principal, hard working person. We are 100% supporters of the school
Ben Gamla is a charter school, and as such any student, parent AND employee may leave and go elsewhere. Certainly if I were that unhappy I would be elsewhere. Also, if I were that unhappy and went elsewhere I would not worry about the school anymore. I can attest that K-8, there are no classes in any of the 4 Hebrew rooms where students sit on the floor; unless of course there is one day where classes combine to work on projects. Just as in Kindergarten, some teaching/projects are done in groups spread out on the floor. Not only has classroom sizes gone down since Mrs. Miller has been principal, she has "weeded" out any students, parents and teachers that were not up to par with our "A" rated school (which has become "A" rated since she has taken over as a principal). Those who attend the school can, and do, only have positive comments for the school, the teachers and the principal, Mrs. Miller. Certainly any students and parents that have an issue are encouraged to make an appt. I have never known Mrs. Miller to take more than 24 hours to return a call/text/email. I have also never know an issue left unresolved. More time volunteering, less time complaining=better parents!!!
excellent school, very happy with my kids going to Bengamla, very happy with the teachers that they have
Our Son Morgan has been attending Ben Gamla for the past 5 years. Morgan would not go to any other school but Ben Gamla, he has made many Friends and loves the School and the Family feel there that is not in any other School. Ms. Miller is a tremendous influence in the School and has had a great impact in providing a top notch education for all of Ben Gamla's Students The School continues to improve every year with smartboards, computers and high quality Hebrew instruction. My Wife and I look forward to the Ben Gamla Middle School being built in Hollywood We are indeed very lucky to have Ben Gamla in our area! Grateful Parent
We have had our daughter in this school for 2 years. Great School! She has excelled! Great teachers! Faculty has a very Professional attitude & is committed to excellence!
We absolutely happy to have our 5 year old in Ben Gamla. She is attending KG and she really loves it!! The teachers, the staff and the principal do really care about the kids, they are "firm with a big heart", I think is the perfect combination to raise good hearted, kind and respectful children (now a days this is not so common, specially with parents making the mistake of saying 'yes' to everything...) I would recommend 100% this school.
The building is old and falling apart. The principal shows off that she knows every kids name, but this doesn't make a good principal. There are much better schools around. There are other places where children can learn Hebrew and get a much better education.
the school has Excellent teachers, Strong one of a kind principal, school leadership, Challenging academic programs, loving teachers
its a great school cant ask for more the teachers try hard for evry student the students arnt just a number, The Principal knows evry student acdemically the school has recived A ratings by the state of florida and kids are taught from the time they come in to kindergarden to be bi linguel english hebrew
Excellent school with a wonderful principal. Discipline, respect, motivation, dynamism everything is here to make a safe and great school.
The school is really improving each day , Ms Miller and the PTA are doing a great effort....the personel is great as well like the enviroment inside the school, the teachers are very well educated and prepared. They apply a lot of discipline and respect to the kids.
Ben Gamla has made many good changes to the school this year as far as the portables, playgrounds, etc. The class sizes are not too large and the teachers are certified and most are very good in education and mannerisms. There is much room for improvement in Sciences and Arts. These are all but missing in the daily curriculum so far. Sports are very limited due to space issues, but I feel they could implement other types of sports/exercise and come out ahead, such as Yoga and even Tai-Chi. Most children I know love Yoga. On other area is security, it is much better than the opening weeks but I feel access is still not as controlled as it should be. There are a few process ideas that could increase security to start and then add security equipment later. An overhead for the exercise area would allow for bad weather play.
