Bancroft Elementary, IB School is one of the best schools I've volunteered at. They are very welcoming of ALL families, I love it there!


Posted October 6, 2013

Bancroft Elementary is and official IB school. In my 23 years of teaching, it is the best school I've ever taught at. The Principal and Staff care about kids and their education. We are welcoming of ALL families! You will continue to hear about Bancroft Elementary because we are making a difference!

Very good, well-run school. Limited extracurriculars and elective opportunities. Very open and communicative teachers and staff. Parents are made to feel welcome and kept informed. School could use one more teacher/classroom per grade, but so could all MPS schools. We have 2 kids at Bancroft; very satisfied.

Great caring staff with high expectations. Students receive personal attention from all members of the staff. Parents are encouraged to participate in school.
