My son started kindergarten this year at LBES. We have been impressed by the academic rigor, activities and diversity. Our son loves school and is always educating us on things he is learning at school! We are very glad about our decision to move to this school district.

I am not impressed. My 2 daughters started this year, one in kindergarten and the other in 4th grade. I heard good things about this school and expected a great education. It seems like the kids get promoted no matter what quality work they do. The teachers are not allowed to "Offend the children's self-esteem"? This is ridiculous. What happened to teachers that actually teach? If a child does not understand the material, let him/her or the parent know. Do not give a passing grade to a 10 year old when a 5 year old can point out what is wrong. I understand that teachers want parents to be more involved but with both of us working full time I think the teachers should step up and earn their paycheck. If this is the future of our public education system I will be homeschooling next year.

We have one son who has been at Little Bennett from 1st through 4th grades and another one entering 1st grade this coming fall. The school has been one of the few things that actually work well in Clarksburg Town Center. The principal is very serious and dedicated, as are the teachers. Any inquiry we have had has been answered promptly and the quality of education is outstanding.

The School is EXELENT. The staff are nice to my child, my child never got bullyed, and is always excited to go back to school. The principal is strong in leadership, and the school is clean, so if you are looking for an elementary school that is up to your standards, then stop looking. What you have been searching for is found.

LBES is an incredible school. I have moved around the country multiple times, have had my children in 4 different elementary schools, Little Bennett by far is the best! Incredible committed teachers, great principal in Mr. Miller and wonderful parent involvement. This school is a gem for the community of Clarksburg Town Center.

This will be my child's third year attending Little Bennett. While I agree with the parent that praises the school's ethnic diversity, what I have always had a problem with is the lack of diversity among the TEACHING staff. There is not one African-American teacher. The assistant principal and the PE teacher are Black though. But for this level of diversity, I have always been surprised that this school has no Black teachers.

LBES is an excellent school. My kindergartener has learned so much this year. He has learned to become more responsible as well. Mr. Miller is a very active principal, which keeps the school on track. For the parent who has the bored child- I'm sorry that you feel this way, but you should of had your child placed in first grade if they are beyond the K level. The classes DO offer various levels with reading and they are already learning first grade math.

It is a very good school with decent groupings and work allocations. My son and daughter joined this school from another MCPS school and I can see this school is as good as the other school with more Discipline.

I completely disagree with the parent who gave LBES a relatively low rating. In my opinion, you cannot judge how good/bad the school is by only looking at the kindergarten and I am amazed at the effect of a single opinion negatively affecting the rating of our wonderful school. Yes, LBES is a great school with dedicated teachers and staff, and of course, the principle. Especially, I like the fact that the school is ethnically so diverse.

So far, it has been mixed. In my opinion, the teachers (in kindergarten at least) don't seem to be able to provide challenging work for kids who can already read, write, add and subtract. They do the same repetitive ABC, 123 drills as kids who are just learning these skills, so that is very de-motivating for the kids. I understand that the teachers have a difficult situation because they have such a mix of abilities in the classroom. However, other schools provide better grouping for longer periods to make sure all children are engaged and learning at their proper level. Instead, at LB the smart kids are expected to bring the others up to speed. I hope my child will be less bored in first grade. Otherwise we will have to find a private school. On the positive side, it is a nice building and people are relatively friendly.

The staff is amazing! I was really surprised by the technology the teachers are using, even at the lower grade levels. It's really Awesome! The school is so diverse and it's so nice to be able to send my child to a school who's population is representative of his community.
