Benjamin franklin school is great because of its leadership. It all stems from the top down and the principal of the school truly cares about the children and has their best interest in mind always. When you have a captain of a ship steering it in the right direction, it can only lead to success!
It is like stopping over a friends' house you always feel welcome. Everyone is so friendly.
I have a first and fourth grader. I love the well rounded education my girls are receiving. It is an excellent atmosphere to watch them grow in.
Great community. Great principal, teachers and staff. Has a lot to offer the children.
Our teachers go above and beyond for our kids. The PTA is top notch.
The teach have a great passion for their classes. Besides being great teacher, I find that they are wonderful people.
I am a parent of a second grader. This is a fantastic school. Dedicated teacher and principle.
My wife and I currently have two children attending BFE and one who recently graduated. We have been heavily involved in the PTA for the past 6 years and are have created many great relationships with the parents and the faculty members. The staff are caring, well educated individuals who give their hearts and souls into educating the BFE children. The children are very respectful of the staff and their peers. Our children are receiving an excellent education at BFE and my recent grad was aptly prepared for entering middle school. I attribute this to our involvment in our children's education but especially to the dedicated staff and administration. I highly recommend Ben Franklin Elementary School.
Some teachers are good but some are very discriminatory and rude to children. This was shocking how rudely they can treat little first graders to the point that they are becoming psychologically demotivated about school and growing a negative impression on the school itself. Most of these bad cop teachers are, by the way, the middle-aged to older ones. They have very little humanity.
My son is in grade 1, I am very satisfied with the academic programs, extracurricular activities they have. The teachers are good and caring. Parent teacher meetings also keep me very much in pace with my sons acheivements and backups, plus the input on the teachers bahalf and her understanding really helps out the whole situation.
My three children attend Ben Franklin and we love it. The PTA is extremely active, providing unique opportunities for the children like assemblies, guest speakers, and their favorite, field day. The principal and staff has a great rapport with the students and parents. There are many clubs, band, chorus, gifted and talented and service opportunities for the students. The school has a positive learning environment and I will be sad to see my oldest move on to middle school this year.
An awsome place of learning and fun for young children. All this school needs is some after school sports to play out of Gym class. The school also needs a cafeteria and a larger gymnasium. KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK! :-)
