Since the hurricane, my child have been attending this schools an it's great. My child is in second grade, her teacher name is Ms. Price. She adores this school and she would love to return next year if she's accepted.
Ben Franklin Elementary School is a great math and science school. We have wonderful teachers who really enjoy teaching, while making it fun.We are the only elementary school with a computer and math lab. Our computer lab has 50 computers in it which gives a strong learning in technology. Our new prinicipal has given our school everything it needs. Our school is multicultural and the education is very challenging to all students. Come and visit see and how wonderful it is.
Benjamin Franklin is one of the best public elementary schools in New Orleans. I am very pleased with the new principal. She is doing an excellent job to make Ben Franklin better. The quality of teachers is excellent here. My child is really being challenged and encouraged to do his best. I am grateful to have found a public school that I am pleased with.
This year at Franklin Elementary is better than ever. We have a new principal who has made it a pleasure to teach. Our academic standards and our wonderful cultural diversity is great. Students are leaving other competative elementary schools because they want their children to have a strong math and science background and not liberal arts. The behavior at Franklin also great. Come and visit and see the school in action. We are sponsoring a Fun Run to complete our exclusive Math Lab. We now have several corporate sponsors that are assisting us in purchasing software for the lab. For the year 2005-2006 we will be adding 8th grade. If you are looking for a great math and science school with culture diversity, and a good learning environment, please come to Franklin Elementary.
I totally agree with the above parent. In addition, the ratio of teacher to students is extremely high. My daughter had 30-32 students in her class third grade class last year and also this year. I give praise to the teachers for hanging in there it must be quite difficult. If changes do not occur soon it will continue to be a spiral down hill. My daughter is one who will not be attending Ben Franklin next year. Her accomplishments have exceeded themselves but I refuse to keep putting her through relentless unnecessary turmoil.
I agree with the previous reader. As a concerned parent I believe changes are needed in leadership. The school has not held up to the standards originally presented. The students behaviors are out of control, and many of the teachers lack the enthusiasm and commitment to the children. The lack of communication exhibited by the teachers is heart wrenching. The ultimate person who suffers is the child. Unlike many of the Orleans Public Schools, parental support is not a problem. The biggest obstacle is lack of communication from the teachers and lack of concern shown by the principal to her staff and parents of Ben Franklin students.
I am very displeased with the spiral downward road Ben Franklin Elem. has taken in discipline, and Principal leadership. We are losing a lot of good teacher and students due to it. It's not the same school it used to be.
