I would imagine that if a person cares enough to post on this website they have cared enough to sit down with their child's teachers. You can sit and talk to the teachers and staff until you are blue and it won't help! If your child has no issues your great but I think their take is completely accurate. They concern themselves much more with how a child is behaving than how they are learning also Fitzgerald is known for being a socially prejudice little town and it carries over into the school system so the only way you are listened to at this school is if they think that you are worth hearing I know this to be true because I personally know many people there and I have no problems but I have friends that are not considered to be as high up the social ladder and they have nothing but problems.

I'm a parent, and I've worked with almost every teacher at Ben Hill Primary. I'm sorry the previous parent has recorded such a sad experience, but I don't think their take is accurate. I believe this person would benefit by sitting down and talking to their child's teacher(s), either of the two wonderful counselors, the very kind vice principal, or the patient principal. All of these folks work very hard to listen to suggestions and improve the children's experience in this school. Also, I am happy to help this parent with their spelling.

A lot needs to be done with this schoold system, child left behind because attendance of teacher not present most of the year, subs half the year. What happened to no child left behind?

I think this school is wonderful. They have been a very big help in assisting my son who needed extra help. And instead of just failing him from his grade, they found a way to help him achieve and not just send him back. They have a very caring staff and I am most thankful for all their help. I cannot wait until my other children are old enough to go here as well.

I must question a district that rewards children for attendance! at bhp they do precisely that. How about rewarding great academic abilities? Seems that discipline and religion have the most emphasis. What happened to dividing church and state? (Says so in the u.S. Constitution!)

ben hill primary school is not the shiming star they claim to be, and i wish i would have never put them in this sorry excuse for a school, they are unpatient with the special needs children,such as (ADD).there are very few teachers there that i approve of,most of them just want the children drugged up on medication, and the principal is bit to quick to use suspenion on small matters,i dislike this school and will be glad when my children nolonger have to go there!!!

My second child is leaving BHE this year and I am definitely sorry to see my time with this school end. Although nothing is completely without fault, the teachers and staff have been absolutely amazing to my children. My experience with the primary school will always be thought of with the highest regards. Thankful parent - 2007

The quality of the acacdemic programs is not that great if you ask me. They seem to leave children behind that are not mastering the programs and they do not refer those children for any type of independent help. I do not feel that a school that allows children to be left behind is a good shcool. I do realize that some children have problems that my cause them not to grasp concepts but i have seen on several occassions students that were not givent he attention that they needed. This school looks good from a distance but up close and personal it is not what it seems to be!

BHP is a wonderful school! From the moment you walk in the building you realize that this is a child centered place. The school is led by a great administrative team. The teachers, both regular and special ed. seem to work well together. The faculty as a whole seems to have a very positive view of children.
