I have seen some real changes occur at the school over the past year with the new principal and I think it is great. The math instruction is much more focused and the kids are going to have some consistency year to year.
Gov. Bent is a very good school. A new principal has been selected and I look forward to seeing which direction she takes the school. Many of the teachers are very good, and some are exceptional. I would like to see more attention paid to the activities that take place on the playground, but overall I feel the staff responds to issues quickly and thoughtfully. There are many opportunities for parents to get involved. I think more parents should take advantage of these. A good staff, a good community, a good school.
I think GovernorBent is the worst school to take your children to. They don't care about the kids, and their education. What there care about is yelling at them and kicking them out. The principal is awful. They need a better leader someone who cares. They need to something about the education in New Mexico. Who they let run the schools. We need someone who cares about our kids.
My daughters have attended Gov Bent from 1999 to 2004, beginning w/Kindergarten for each child. We have had the most amazing teachers! This school has award winning teachers, wonderful family events, and a great admin staff. I would not send my children to another elemtary school, if you paid me!
In spite of the fact that the principal is not much to brag about, the teachers are truly amazing. Many of the classrooms are simply the best in the city due to the splendid leadership of the previous principal.
