My son attends Banneker Elem. he's in the 1st grade in Mrs. Williams class, this is his 2nd year he was in Mrs. Holliday's class in kinderg. I love the school the principal is active and participates with the students and the events. He reads like a 2nd or 3rd grader I'm happy with the results of their teaching strategy. The school makes learning fun for the students. I've noticed aslo the lack of parental support but it doesn't stop the teachers. I just want to say my son is learning he comes home and talks about the things he learned today so that makes me happy. Misty Lowry

I have a child in K for the school year of 2007-2008 in Mrs. Holliday's class and I feel that this school if run very professionally. The principal is always interacting with the kids and all the staff seem to care about all of there students in there classroom. I feel very welcome everytime I enter into the building and I'm glad my son attends B. Banneker Elementary School. :)
