I am currently a 2016 student. The principal does not care I repeat does not care about the students. She only cares about the test scores and keeping the school's reputation up. She even canceled a student's doctor appt; to keep her in testing for the dc cas 2013-2014.

The academic program is very rigorous which provides college preparedness. Banneker is a wonder school for those that want more out of education. The staff is awesome and really help the students when they are needing additional assistance.

The principal is ghetto behind her profession. She worries more about keeping the school up as oppose to helping the kids. She put a lot of pressure on the kids and care little about their concern. Shes underhanded, watch her.

I'm a sophomore and it is a great school. It opens up many opportunities for us and the program is challenging. Overall it is a good school to attend.

I am an alum and can attest to the education and experience. My son entered 9th grade a little intimidated but has surpassed both of our expextations making Principal's Commendation all quarters, most recently 3.83. The grading scale is higher but that has made him more driven to get a 4.0. He really wanted to play football which Banneker does not offer so next year he will be eligible to play at McKinley or Wilson now that he has proven he can a Banneker Achiever. The best thing I did for my son academically was to encourage him to attend. He is not distracted and keeps his eye on the prize, attending COLLEGE!
