11 Parent Reviews for Charles E. Bennett Elementary School

The teachers act as if they believe that they are "better" than the parents. I also made several complaints about other kids being so touchy feely with my children, and nothing changed. I feel that there is too much time spent socializing with other children and running wild on the playground. Front ...  Read more

It used to be good and parents and students were proud of it but now you have a principal who doesn't care about the students and doesn't care how the teachers treat the students.

The first 2+ years were awesome. Great teachers every year - terrific staff. UNTIL!! We now have a new principal who "rules" CEB. If it's not her idea, it won't float. Parents have little input.

My grandson is at CEB and has had outstanding teachers and valuable learning experiences. The adminstrators, support staff and faculty are very effective in their efforts to help the students. I am especially thankful for a principal that knows each student by name.

CEB is OK at teaching. There are some good teachers. However, as a parent, if your child is not one that is perfect your problems are just starting. The teachers, Admin. staff, and other support staff have a CEB 'They do no wrong' attitude. -J Deal

I feel that certain teachers at this school play favorites and the ones that are not watch out.

I love this school. I have never known a set of teachers of administrators who work so hard at creating a successful environment for our kids. I am also really happy that sixth grade is staying at CEB. I also want to say that Mrs. Calhoun does a fantastic job with the kids. She really takes the time ...  Read more
