My child attended this school in 2005 to 2006 school year and 2006 to winter 2007. i love this school the teachers and principals. they try hard to provide a good education, they are more advanced with there learning in this school than where we moved. we moved to nj and when my child started in a school up here, they were doing things they had learned in september . the child study team at benn quin is excellent and they helped my child excell. i will miss this school and the staff

I have 2 children who currently attend Ben D. Quinn and would absolutely give this school 5 out of 5 stars. I'm also the upcoming PTO president for BDQ for next school year, and have had the honor of getting to know the teachers and staff on a personal and professional level. The principal, Curtis Gatlin, and vice principal, Stephanie Cyrus, are exceptional leaders. The teachers at our school actually care about our children and are willing to talk with you anytime. The respect I feel my children receive at BDQ challenges them to WANT to learn and do well. I believe we have one of the greatest elementary schools in the entire country!

Ben D Quinn lacks leadership and substance for teaching our students more than how to make high scores on the EOG tests for the school. And have a disregard for how children are suppose to act a certain age. My child will not be attending this school and I would not recommend this school to anyone who values a well rounded education.

Ben Quinn is an awesome school. This is my child's second year there and she has done very well. The staff and the principal are all willing to talk with the parents and involve them in any way that would be beneficial to your child. The children are learning at a fast pace and reading better than I did in first grade. I think Ben Quinn has great qualities and the participation of the staff in the children's lives is amazing. Go BENDI!
