I went to St. Benedicts and so did my 3 children. We were so happy with their education and preparedness for high school. St. Bens is also a very nurturing, encouraging environment which served our children and us well! We miss it!

I personally would not recommend this school to minority families . My family experienced racism on many levels . We as a family were singled out on several occasions. Several times staff spoke to my children inappropriatly as well as sent messages through them for myself , this continued after asking the staff not to. Once I informed the school that I planned to transfer my children my children's books were taken from them , they were questioned by the staff without contacting myself in regard to when their last day would be . Upon my arrival at dismissal my children were sent out with their nap mats , changes of clothes and art work. This happened only a quarter through the school year and none of the supplies that I had sent in were returned when they were pushed out . The only explanation for this poor behavior and treatment of my children that was extended to me was that it was not meant to be malicious . My children did not deserve to be treated in this manner and this last act of ill will toward them solidified my decision to remove my three children from the school.

I have been a St. Benedict's parent for 9 years. My wife and I were so impressed with the school that we moved within the parish so our child would not have to change schools. Superior teachers and excellent education. Many high school scholarship winners.

I have been going to St. Bens since i was 5. I am now in 7th grade and i love it! You make great friends, which i know i will have forever. It is a great atmosphere to learn. The principal is also stellar, she will help you with any problem even if its not school realted. The teachers are so nice and always try to help you if you have trouble with anything. They offer afterschool help, before school help, and during study hall help. They have so many clubs to offer such as scienc club, book club, spanish club, computer club, choir, chours, and band. I would never think that my parents or i regret them chosing St. Benedicts as my school as well as my siblings.

Our children love St. Benedict's because the teachers care and take a personal interest in each student. I love the school because of the close family environment. Having a solid moral center and a culture of respect was important to us. At St. Benedict's you don't have to trade a great moral education for educational opportunities. The children have Spanish, a great music teacher, a great art teacher, computers, Spanish, band, chorus, a great Science Club, every sport available conducted in such a way that any child who wants to participate has the chance to participate. Even the gym teacher is great, really teaching the kids all kinds of sports from cricket to Four Squares. The teachers work with the parents. Like all families, our children are all different and each has thrived at St. Benedict's. We definitely recommend St. Ben's.

I have been a parent at St Benedict's for 14 years. I had one daughter atend St. Ben's, go on to Nardin High School and is now in college at an international university. A second child is curently in 7th grade. The acedemic programs are terrific, and include advanced classes in the middle school that allow children with different levels of achievement to get either the extra attention or the extra challenge that is needed. There are many extras, including band, chorus, science club, book club and all sports. The parent involvement is outstanding, especially in support of the after school activities. An after school program allows working parents to be assured that their child is safe and productive while waiting for mom or dad to get out of work. The Catholic values are not just taught, they are part of student life. I recommend St Benedict.

St.Benedict Elementary is a superior school in the small town of Snyder, N.Y. I looked at four schools before choosing this one for my children. My daughter is currently in 4th grade and my twin boys are in 1st. I can not say more about the teachers and the principal. They are open to parental concerns and do an excellent job of teaching subject material as well as study skills. Their ability to assist students on their road to becoming independent learners is excellent. The faculty also encourages the use of good values during decision-making. The principal promotes civic-minded activities like community service in addition to calling for a quality academic program. Class sizes are small which means more teacher attention for each student. The tuition is reasonable and most parents are involved in the countless activites that are offered. St. Benedict school treats its students as part of a family!

St. Benedict is a FINE School. The biggest advantages I see at St. Benedict: Great Parent involvement, the children who are at this school belong to parents who care, the energy level of the Teachers is great, the Teachers really care here (our kids really loves his Teacher and we can tell they care back). The teacher retention is great, because of the warm, stable environment they are working in. My children are in 1st and 3rd and they could not be happier.
