10 Parent Reviews for Benjamin Banneker High School

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 quality of academics is very high, although they seem to lack the backbone of being overall. BY that I mean that yes indeed they do have academics, but high school isnt all about academics.
