Ben Rush is an excellent school. When we moved here we thought Bellevue schools were the schools to try to get in to, but have discovered that Lake Washington School District has very high quality education standards. Coming from a top-in-the-nation school district in Texas, Ben Rush Elementary has been a great choice for my kids. The teachers are top-notch, care for their students, allow for individual learning needs (my son has a 504 for dysgraphia), and are able to teach creatively outside the "standardized test box". Mr. Brad Stolz is a phenomenal principal who takes time to get to know parents, builds relationships with students by stopping in the classrooms and teaching impromptu lessons (usually on some fun math trivia) and empowers his teachers. Ben Rush also has a successful anti-bullying program and is known as the "Peace Builders" school. I overheard a middle school teacher say that kids coming from Rush are the most behaved and respectful to others over any other elementary school. As a former educator myself and current substitute teacher that works in both districts, I would choose this school again in a heartbeat over any school in Bellevue.

Rush is a great school with many caring parents. The teachers are great espcially Mrs. Oh, Mrs. Fouhy ahd Mrs. Andrete. My girls enjoys being in the school, they like the passport check program and learnt a lot from there.

Ben Rush is a wonderful school with excellent, caring staff members under the direction of a very hardworking and devoted principal, Mr. Spray. My daughter attended this school for three years before our move out of the country and we do miss the school, the friends and the teachers. Excellent PTA activities/involvement. Technology and facilities are always upto par to other schools. School will be receiving a facelift in the 2010 time. Criticism: Although test scores are high but as a whole, i wished there were more programs for children that are academically advanced. Quest Gifted program across the whole district has very few spaces per school thus Ben Rush cannot do much on that aspect. However, perhaps a more challenging curriculum would be a start.
