My school is of high standards. The teachers all appear to be on a professional level. So please keep up the good work

I must say that I have been impressed totally with this school. Its a shame that more of the local zone schools are not like this one. The staff is great, the teachers care about the students and the curriculum is definitely on track. I had to send 2 of my children to this school and both of them loved it. It was an adjustment for my son who came from Anne Arundel county schools but the problem he initially had was that the school was further ahead of where he was in anne arundel. Once he caught up, he was fine and his teacher understood and worked him through the process.

I love this School. I enjoy the activities that's partnered with the school for the kids. I also enjoy the workshops they have for the parents. This school makes sure they put a forth effort to make parents are involved with the students and the school.

With everything that bentalou(maryann winterling) has going on i would say that this school is indeed a great school. It has principal leadership, teacher quality, extracurrricular activities, parent involvement, and definitely safety and discipline and to say the least bentalou has the pleasure of being in baltimore city 's safe routes to school program.

Mrs Winterling is the Best of The Best!. She is always caring and loving towards every child under her care. I must say, I was amazed at how she never forgot names of parents as well as children. No child will ever be left behind in her care. She is a blessed women with more love than imaginable. It killed me to remove my so from Bentelau. However I believe that if I walked in that school five years from now, She would still call my son and myself by name.

I must say my very first experience at bentalou elementary school was about 8 yrs ago when my son was enrolled. There is no way to express the warmth that i felt coming from ms. Winterling. . A couple of years later my daughter was enrolled as well, and again the warmth was still taking me over. I have always felte the teachers and i was on the same page.Meaning we all was after the same thing, looking out for the children. Open door policy is what ms. Wintering always said. My youngest child wil be entering school in the fall and i know the experience will never change. All i can say is god bless ms. Winterling hopefully at some point in time other parents and chlidren will experience the love that bentalou elementary school has.

I agree with the first comment about the principal. She is a very caring person. I have never entered that school and didn't see a smile on her face and her being very polite to me as well as every child that crossed her path. She know all the children by name, which I think is remarkable and she also knows all the parents I've ever seen walk pass her by name. I have three children and two have already graduated from Bentalou and I wish they could have stayed there with her and the teachers that are there. They all are very caring and concerned about their kids. That's what they call them when you drop them off. They belong to them and I personally can say that they take very very good care of them. I think Beantalou is an A1 school.

First, I must send my praises for the principal of this school. In all of my years, I have never seen a more involved and pleasant principal. Do not get me wrong; all of the staff is great, but, this woman just makes me wish my child could continue his entire educational career within the walls of Bentalou. Not only does she do a great job running the school, but she knows each of the parents and students and will literally discontinue any conversation she is in just to say hello or goodbye to each parents entering or exiting the building. My son is in his first year, and I have two other children who will also attend this school. I feel comfortable with their success in education with a woman like this running the school as well as the teachers/ administrators who are also on top of things. Denise Young

As a former student of Bentalou Elementary school I did not appreciate what the school had to offer until my child also was in attendance, it gave me the chance as an adult to see just how special and rare it is to have a principal and teachers that care about the student far beyond 5th grade years. they show a sense of passion and compassion towards the student that i have not seen any where else. The principal of this school is very approachable and welcomes you each time you visit and although your child is not the only student in this school, you get a personal response as if he or she was, i love Bentalou elementary #150, and can not wait until my younger chilren can attend.

I can not express how this elementary school has give such nuturing care to our children. the staff members are stable and always kind. The principal is far about the best. I would recommend this school to any parent living in Baltimore City and in need of the right school for their childs tender years. The school not only foster great staff but there goal was to better educate all children entering the building and equipping them with knowledge and skills for the upcoming future. I love Bentalou # 150 !
