I've had my children at this school for the last six years and it's been the best decision I've ever made. This is a safe learning environment with the best teachers. The school director,Dr.Berman has been wonderful and continues to make our school even better. Ben Gamla in my opinion is the best charter school in the area.
Teacher at Ben gamla are more than efective.The care about a very kid.The have an excelent communication with parents,and try really hard to send all the information in paper and email,also sometimes they use text
As a parent of two children at Ben gamla I have just great thing to say about this school.At ben gamla you can breath from a very positive enviroment. Teachers ARE very professional, friendly and helpful.They have an excelent comunication whith parents.The staff are kind and helpful too.The lady at the cafeteria (michelle)is more than beyond.....she cares about everything and every one.The small classroom sizes allow the teachers to teach and the students to learn.Volunteers are very welcome .The administration is totally engaged in every aspect of the school.Dr Berman the administrator is always available to any concerns that parents might have.He is always outside or walking around the school making sure things go smoothly. The aministrator do everything he can do to help the students. He has shown leadership and dedication to his staff ,students and parents. I wish other parents could see beyond their madness how kind and understanding he is,specially with our childrens . Ben Gamla charter school is like one big huge family
This school has amazing teachers. They are dedicated beyond what you'll find anywhere else. The school has gone through many changes, and change is never easy. Unfortunately, it's impacted everyone. We finally have a new principal who has started off with wonderful communication and is very committed to improving the school. You'll never find a perfect school, believe me I've checked all over Miami. But the results of test scores and the way the students feel in this school speaks for itself. I have never witnessed such close relationships in a school setting. Teachers with teachers, students with teachers, parents and teachers, etc. It's a great atmosphere. The PTO really tries to keep the school going and help keep those relationships flourishing. I know this year will be a great one!
My daughter had the pleasure this year of being placed with Ms.Pulido and Ms.Villegas. My daughter had never been in a school setting before and they made her feel comfortable. Also there was plenty of help and study groups for the FCAT There is a new principal but I'm hopeful that things will continue to be a positive experience.
New principal is terrible!!! Teachers are ok, but they dont even know how to stay open as many of the older kids are going to different schools. Check out Bridgeprep down the street if youre interested in your child being in a good place.
I'm very happy with school academically and a family like atmosphere is great. I'm giving it 4 stars only because it's in desperate need of update. Classrooms are cluttered and furnishings are very dated. Bathrooms need a complete remodel. Also a professional cleaning service would be great.
