I would not recommend this school to any one because the teachers and staff members are careless. My brother is currently attending this school, and I have a complain to whoever is reading this.

The dual-language program used is a huge asset, as is the special ed inclusion. Family atmosphere and, miraculously, teachers seem to know all 450 students. Plenty of attention for each child here. It's not perfect but it's a public school. If Bancroft can weather the current DCPS administration ...  Read more
