Amount of homework: Disagree

Very little homework is sent home, but I don't feel children should have any whatsoever in grade school.

Develops character: Strongly agree

Bancroft encourages honesty, integrity, and fairness through education and a unique reward system. Last year one student from each class was honored with a "Choose Kind" t-shirt in a special assembly and encouraged to wear it every Wednesday.

My 7 year old has been attending Bancroft for almost 2 years now. Before the start of this school year, they hired a new principal. He is very motivated in making learning a fun experience, and really cares about the kids. Both of my daughters teachers have been excellent. She is doing very well in school, has great friends, and it's a safe and fun learning environment.

I have a first grader and a kindergartner at Bancroft this year. I am extremely impressed with this school in many aspects. Every staff member I have come into contact with is amazing. Kind, generous, and they all seem to genuinely care about the students. Both of my girls are shining here at Bancroft. I love how welcoming the school is to parents being on campus. I've attended many class parties, stayed for breakfast with the girls, and have even showed up a few times at lunch. My only concern is the lack of parental involvement at this school. The PTA is rarely mentioned at all. It was two months into the school year before I even received any information regarding meetings and times. I'm pleased to have my girls attend such a great school!

When Mr. Sorteno was principal the school was the best. The principals now seems to not have what's best for kids at interest. Almost all teachers are wonderful at this school.

This is a terrific gem of an urban school in Omaha - a well kept secret!
