My two children go to school at Benard Black Elementary school. The teachers they have are wonderful and caring. The staff has been very amazing with my children. They went out of their way to make me comfortable bringing my kids to Kinder.

I am the same parent that reviewed on December 9th, 2009. While I still think Mrs. K was WONDERFUL, I am no longer impressed with this school.

The principal is great at this school. She listens to teachers and parents. I also like that she is upfront with what she can do and never tries to over promise and under deliver. With some more time, this school will be excelling! Great job!

This school needs much improvement, the teachers did not care much about their students, principal was never around, there was not enough supervision before or after school, the student/teacher ratio was high. I pulled out my child from this school.

The programs for children with special needs are lacking. Also the quality of teachers is just plain poor. I wonder are these people working at the school for a paycheck or to mold future minds and leaders of our society? Parents would be more likely to step up if the school got thier act together and ...  Read more

There are a few strong teachers, but can't carry load of others. No support from district ( not surprising ) Very minimal parent involvement, and many disciplinary issues with students. It is very frustrating trying to communicate with principal and Roosevelt District. They are always looking into or ...  Read more
