Bebensee is where my Grandchild goes and just loves it. She is learning so much and the teachers get them excited to want to learn.


Posted June 30, 2013

This school is terrible all they do is teach kids how to take the State test their only goal is to boost those state scores. My daughter hated it here and she didn't learn a thing. Stay away if you can unless you wanted a frustrated child.

This was our first year at Bebensee. God bless my daughter's teacher Ms. Cowman. She did a fantastic job!

I have been a part of the Bebensee community for 8 years as a grandparent. Wow! Bebensee is such a nice place to be. The principal is supportive and kind, the teachers show genuine care for the students and the overall atmosphere at the school is friendly and helpful. What a great group of teachers. They have more after school programs like the dance team! Such great opportunities for the students to develop in and out of the classroom.

I have had two children go through Bebensee. I have seen many changes over the years. On the whole Bebensee is a very good school. Our students come from varied home situations and the teachers try to make school the best part of their day. Like every school one or two teachers creep in that are there for the pay and summers off but they don't stay long. I see many bright and exciting days ahead for the students and Bebensee.

I had posted a negative review about this school three years ago. However, the change in administration seems to have made a difference. My children are enjoying school more than evver, and there seems to be a pretty good community spirit in this neighborhood for a change.

My children have attended Bebensee for the past 2 years. With new Principal and Vice Principal, I have seen the whole atmosphere change. The office staff have been welcoming. The Nurse has been wonderful identifing health issues with my children. My children have had outstanding teachers. The 1st and 2nd grade teachers have made my children excited about school and eager to come every morning. I am grateful to the staff and faculty for making my children value the importance of education. I am grateful that they have qualified teachers who recognize the individual needs of the students.

Bebensee's test scores definetly reflect the teachers,they are poor to say the least.I am however impressed with the music teachers and their program.This school is one of the worst AISD has to offer,we will be moving this year just to get out of Bebensee and hopefully AISD all together.

My child learned more and did more projects,book reports etc in lower grades than she is currently doing in the 5th. It appears that they do less work but are graded harder. A few of the classes do not send homework and have provided no information about the curriculum or what is being taught. My child indicates that they don't go outside much and in Gym the teacher spends more time talking than allowing exercise. If they allowed children more time to release some of the energy they probably would have less behavioral problems. To much time is focused on receiving negative marks and the TAKS instead of teaching the children the fundamentals. Several of the teachers are not friendly and have a negative demeanor. The teachers definately stick together and try to cover themselves. I was warned by other parents but didn't have much choice.

It's definitely better this year, with some different staff in place at the highest levels. Then again, it might just be the grades our kids are in. Our 3rd grade teacher is much better than the one we had for 2nd last year. 1st grade is still great as always.

The room teacher had no control over the children, and seemed to not care. At least there is a new principal. My family will be moving soon, to allow for better education.

my child has been here since kindergarten, she is now in 2nd grade. We love Bebensee, she looks forward to going everyday, her teachers have been great, and they have a lot of different learning ideas that they do with the kids everyday.

This school has been amazing. We were displaced by the hurricane and it is the greatest thing to happen to us. Dr. de Jesus, the principal and the teachers are the best

The current Principal, 2005-2006 school year, is an excellent administrator. The school offers an academically stimulating learning environment.

Posted August 20, 2005

Unfortunately, I haven't had the same great experience at Bebensee. The 5th grade teachers act like they aren't there to help our children succeed. That is their duty and job and should be their heart's desire but it's not or it wasn't last year. I'm hoping this 6th grade team of teachers are much more enthusiastic with their career and do what they were hired for...to help our children succeed!! My child has attended Bebensee for three years and so far, I'm not impressed.

My daughter has been there for 1st and 2nd grade and has loved it. The teachers are top notch and really have alot of interest in the children!! Sadly we are moving and have to change schools. She will miss Bebensee!!!

This is an excellent school. I went to Bebensee K-6 grade and I loved it. I learned so much and had a great time. Those were the best times of my life. Now I am in college at the University of Houston and I am still using the things I learned at Bebensee here in college. When I have children someday, I plan tomove back to Arlington so that they can experience Bebensee the way I did.

About the tests


In 2012-2013, the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR) was used to test students in reading and math in grades 3 through 8; in writing in grades 4 and 7; in science in grades 5 and 8; in social studies in grade 8; and end-of-course assessments for English I, II, and II, Algebra I and II, biology and US History. STAAR is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Texas. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.

The different student groups are identified by the Texas Education Agency; if there are a small number of students in a particular group, the state doesn't report data for that group.

About the tests


In 2012-2013, the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR) was used to test students in reading and math in grades 3 through 8; in writing in grades 4 and 7; in science in grades 5 and 8; in social studies in grade 8; and end-of-course assessments for English I, II, and II, Algebra I and II, biology and US History. STAAR is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Texas. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.

The different student groups are identified by the Texas Education Agency; if there are a small number of students in a particular group, the state doesn't report data for that group.

Texas uses Accountability Ratings to indicate the overall performance of each school and district.

Schools and districts rated under standard accountability procedures are designated as Exemplary, Recognized, Academically Acceptable or Academically Unacceptable. Schools and districts rated under alternative education accountability (AEA) procedures are designated as either AEA: Academically Acceptable or AEA: Academically Unacceptable.
