Teachers at this school are for the most part friendly, but very lazy. The kids are wild and could use a little more discipline. IMO the kids get away with waaay too much at this school.= both educationally and behavior wise. SO sad that this type of lenient educational environment adds to the downfall of undereducated society.
i sent my child there for the end of 6th grade. she was completely unhappy. teachers were rude. home work over load. i sent her there for 7th . same problems. she has made amazing friends there but the adults there are horrible.
this is a exellent school. mr.davis is a awsome prisible and the staff is great i love it I has been going there for 2 years and I loves it
There are many Phenomenal teachers with many college experiences and can put a smile on your face. Any ordinary techer will sit in front of the classroom and say'okay class open up your book' but not at Ben Hill techers will get up from there chair to help a student and will even do a hands on experiments with the student untill they get it. I was only there for the 6th grade and i grew so much from that one year.
At this point in time my son and daughter attend Hill Middle and our major problem is that many of the kids are just 'wild'. My son is constantly complaining that the work environment is upsetting and distracting. Many of the students are loud, undisciplined. We recently moved from another state. Didn't really realize how good it was there until we experienced the environment here. We are considering other choices at this time. Frankly I was suprised the ratings were pretty good, but it doesn't reflect our personal experience.
The music dept is absolutely wonderful! My daughter is in 7th grade, she has had 2 years of band and has learned so much. My child has ADD and I wouldn't reccomend any children with ADD go to this school. The lack of teacher to parent communication until it is too late happens much too often. Other than that, the school is great!
I chose this school for my son who started 6th grade this year and have been very pleased with the overall quality. Although his homework load is rather heavy, he is really enjoying school and has had a positive experience so far. Teacher communication has been good, and the extra-curricular activities (dances, sports, field trips, etc.) have been very impressive. I would recommend this school to any parent who is looking for a quality education for their child.
