The staff and parents are fully engaged with the children. My son absolutely loves the school, the teachers, and the rest of the staff. Great involvement and awesome activities are put on by the PTO. Lots of great fundraisers and opportunities for the students and parents to really be involved with their children and the teachers. It is hard sometimes to still find teachers that truly care about the students and their future, this is something I have seen displayed in everyone that I have encountered at Banting. I could not ask for a better school for my children!
School is Great and friendly and i like the way they will give the information on the first day.
My son got admitted to this school last year and I so remarkable changes in him with his reading capacities. I am extremely thankful to his calss teacher of 1st grade, who really new to bring the best out of him. A very heartly thank you to the teachers.
Banting is a very well rounded school that shows a genuine care for each individual child. I have had 2 children at Banting and both of them had memorable and outstanding teachers!
Great communication. Our principal and teachers create a real sense of community. We have our "Banting Family" and everyone feels that they belong there and have something to contribute to our school's well-being. We can't say enough about the wonderful education our daughter is receiving - academically, socially, and emotionally.
I love Banting elementary because: 1. The teachers are excellent. 2. The students have to respect others. 3. The students know what is expected of them. 4.
Dedicated and passionate teachers, I love the dual language program and diversity in the school.
The opportunity given to the students to be bilingual in elelmentary school is awesome.
My daughter goes here and I am pleased for the most part. We moved into the district and were concerned about the low scores at the school. But the test scores are skewed, due to a large number of ESL students bused into the school for the spanish program. The staff and parent involvement has been outstanding. They really celebrate diversity. The PTO is great. In kindergarden there are 4 different classes English speakers (2) ESL (1) and Dual Language (spanish immersion). The school is definately not perfect, but they are working hard. The teachers and staff are wonderful here.
My daughter goes to this school for last 3 years. I am very pleased regarding the care that is taken and the programs that they have there. All the teachers were awesome and so far nothing bad about the scool.
The gr8est skool I have ever been to. You get every bit of support from the teachers. And the programs featured by the school were awesome.
I sent 2 children through the school, and couldn't wait to be out of there. Bullying by teachers and students alike is tolerated. Walk through the halls at the end of the day and you will hear students swearing and teachers ignoring it. Complete chaos.
My daughter attended Banting for kindergarten, the staff is awesome! Parental involvement is so important and I encourage all Banting parents to get involved, go to the PTO meetings; it's good for the school and great for your children. I wish I were still there. Jennifer Dawkins, a parent
My son has attended Banting for 6 years. I have had the support of teachers as well as the principal. If he is struggling and there are services to be offered, he receives them. Like any place you have to address issues with a positive spin and ask for help when it is needed. I have had no problems. Great school and great staff.
I think this is one of the worst schools in the Waukesha school district. When my daughters went to this school they had no support from the teachers and the Principal. My oldest daughter was a D-F student and for the last 2 years at a new school has gone to a A-B because of the support she has gotten from the school, and the staff. The principal seems to be more worried about her social status in the school than running the school.
