We have been so absolutely pleased with Benignus! The teachers and administration truly care about the students and work enthusiastically with parents. The PTO is also fabulous and provides a great deal for the entire school!

Awesome principal for both students and teachers. Teachers care about their students and the families of this community. This is a great place to grow up and attend school.

My son began Kindergarten at Benignus after attending private PK. Teachers are very attentive and supportive and he has adjusted very well. He is learning by leaps and bounds and loves school! One problem I have is that some of the moms are snobby. I have witnessed one PTO mom in particular completely ignore someone she is acquainted with while engaging in conversation with another mom whom she knew that was with the acquaintance. She has done the same to me. Definitely very off-putting and junior high-ish for a mid to late 30s mom. Not exactly making me want to join PTO. Second, it seems if some moms know your child came from private school there is an us-and-them mentality. Who has time for that?? Finally, the principal does seem to micromanage a bit. For example, a minor bus incident was blown out of proportion despite the fact the parents of kids involved discussed and agreed it was no big deal. Yet principal insisted on making a bigger deal. It makes one wonder if she has enough to do. Why not let parents parent and resolve the issue? The school itself is awesome so if you are OK with the rest, I highly recommend it!

I read another review that suggested that this school needed a lesson in customer service, and my immediate thought was that "its not just me." In my experience, other schools have been more responsive to my questions/requests for help. The test scores are really good, but it is not all about a test.

We relocated in the middle of the school year from an area where schools were lagging behind. I researched different schools based upon test scores and other criteria that Greatschools.com uses. We choose a home in the Benignus zone, we have not regretted it for one moment. The teachers were understanding and patient with our kids who were facing the transition of an increase of 11 hours per week in school, upping the degree of difficulty of the scholastics and being the new kids. The school has a wonderful staff that has welcomed us and made us feel a part of the school family. The PTO is truly involved in improving the school and its atmosphere for the children. We are glad that we found this school and community. We have seen such an improvement in their education and are very happy we chose Benignus.

My experience is that it is a good school and has a strong PTO and great teachers. I think the other staff is rude and has a poor attitude towards parents and students. They could use a 101 course in customer service and learning their place in a school environment. They work for us...not the other way around!

This school is great! The Principal is wonderful and the PTO is awesome! My child is in 5th grade this year and the teachers work really had with your child and they give nothing but excellence. This school had been open only 3 years but has the ability of a high school. The activites are just out of this world from the Christmas parades to International Day a must see event starts in May. I'm glad my child attends this school. Make a appointment for a tour and meet the Principal.

My child is in Kindergarten and already reading at a 2nd grade level. She loves school, her teacher, and all the staff. The principals are very supportive and do what is needed for all students. The parents are very involved and support the faculty. We love the school!

This school is one year old, so it is still a pretty new school. It appears to be good. It appears to have the latest electronic equipment. My daughter is in Kindergarten, and she seems to like the teacher. The schools seems to be responsive to a parents concern. Since my daughter first started, I don't have much to say. The PTO seems very strong, they seem to have many activities.
