24 Parent Reviews for St. Benedict Elementary School
Our children have been at St. Ben's for three years now; we are thrilled with the school! The teachers are the most dedicated I've ever come in contact with. They bend over backwards to help your child. In our experience, communications with teachers has been superb. The administration takes parent
... Read more concerns seriously and is willing to work with parents to ensure that everyone has a good experience. The curriculum is top notch. Classroom size is small so as to ensure that each child gets significant one on one time with the instructor. The school also has sports and club options galore.

The teachers are kind, loving, and highly qualified (most have advanced degrees), the administration is excellent, and the support staff is great, too!

I have 2 daughters in Elementary School. Very strange what the previous reviewer stated. We've always had a great communication with the teachers and they all are quick to reply to any emails/questions we have. My daughters are more than happy at the school. There is a lot of homework for my 2nd grader.
... Read more There are different levels within the classroom (normal, advanced, etc). My 2nd grader is in the advanced group and the level of work is very demanding. We are somehow involved in the parish but do not donate any extra $ and the level of attention we receive from all staff is absolutely wonderful. Read less

I wish I had a crystal ball because I would not have sent my daughter to this school. The curriculum is not wonderful.

My Kindergartner, as a new student to the St. Ben's community, has had a very positive experience in making the transition to a new school. We previously had been at a Montessori for three years and never felt comfortable there. My child developmentally, socially, and acedemically has made drastic improvements
... Read more at St Ben's because of the compassion and experience the teachers and administration has for its students. Recommendations were made on how to make our child's transition go smoother. Suggestions included a 5 week transition to Kindergarten summer camp, visits to the classroom, meet-and-greet's with other students. To net it out, there are many opportunities to communicate with the teacher(s) to monitor progress and get involved. The after-school programming is excellent, fostering additional oppportunites for your child to create a bond with their classmates. It's a nurturing place for your child and a great FIRST experience to starting their school years. Read less
