My son has attended Pre-K and is currently attending Kindergarten at BFSA. He is a very smart, friendly, outgoing and well behaved little boy but during this past year i have witnessed him break down into tears when i have picked him up almost weekly and he now begs to stay home from school. He has been choked in the bathroom, his ear bitten, his backpack stolen, shoved down and knocked unconsious, and even painfully hit a few times. This has all been done done to him mostly by much older students. The teachers do not watch these little ones close enough and are very rude to them as well. I have witnessed them tell students to shutup, put their hands down because they don't need to ask a question, ignore bathroom requests for hours, etc. After this school year i will definitely be transferring my child to a better monitored and caring staffed school.
Ben Franklin is a top notch school I have 3 children enrolled there this school year I have been most pleased with all the care and concern given by everyone there we are grateful to have been selected to attend such a great school
My daughter went to Kindergarten here and the whole experience was horrible. She came home "freak dancing" to "My milkshake brings all the boys to the yard" hip-hop song and said she learned it from school! Her reading skills have actually downgraded since she went to this school, in that her teacher didnt have enough one-on-one time with the students because there are so many. Also saw a huge drop in her self-esteem and confidence levels after attending this school. I wouldn't suggest sending any child to this school.
Attention parents looking for a great techer for their future kinder gardener, Mrs. Grober is simply the best!
This is an excellent school. The children get many opportunities to experience science in a way they wouldn't otherwise have been able to. Also I really like the principal; she is very helpful and professional.
This school is great. The kids get a to really experience learning with a strong science perspective. They love it. The teachers are friendly and informative and the principal is wonderful.
