Great school. Safe school, great location, helpful administration, loyal, intelligent, very capable teaching staff, and a clean, well run school. A ton family activities throughout year, also many avenues for children who need additional help. I love that we have physical fitness, art and music all week long. It may not be the newest or fanciest school in the area but the property is well maintained and the staff/teachers are experienced and work well together. We had to switch schools because of a boundary change, that I was not happy about...but kept positive for my children. The district did a A+ job with the shift, and we couldn't be happier. Thanks Bannes!

The school has constantly got exciting events for teh kids to be involved in. The staff is overall pretty good. The principal isn't. Everything about him annoys me.

This school has been outstanding with parent/teacher communication. They are quick to assist if your child is having any difficulties.

We absolutely love this school. The principal is one of a kind, he really cares about the students and families. The teachers are wonderful, and staff is very kind and personable. I have four children 2 of which attend full time and one is special services only, they are great. The teachers and principal work in gearing education towards your childs needs whether it be advance or in need of extra care. My oldest son is advanced and his teacher is great on the care that takes, my second son has reading difficulties they didn't wait to make sure he had the tools needed to be a productive reader. He now is doing great. They also work with the parents to provide the best quality education for your child(ren). Highly recommend Bannes.

Great! Say That Again! Bannes School is a wondeful, fun, exciting school. Kids can be taught k-5th here. The teachers are also great. Bannes is a wonderful edition to 140.
