I haven't exactly started going here yet. I literally just got the acceptance letter a few hours ago. From what everyone else here is saying and from when I first went to visit this school, I think it seems good enough. I REALLY hope I enjoy my time here!

As a 2009 graduate from Benjamin Banneker Academy, I must say that my teachers and taking advantage of the AP courses offered has prepared me well for college. Now a junior pursing my BA degree I often look back on what I learned in high school and I must say, this school really is great all around.

I am a Freshman this year. I thought these reviews were lies, but when I entered Banneker I realized that they were true. The teachers really care and it just feels like one big family. The seniors are not mean to younger students. Everybody basically get along.

My Daughter Is now A senior in This School ,and she has really enjoyed her time, the teachers have such a "one on one" with parents and students about their academics for the most part.They also encourage the students to strive for whatever they feel will make them successful in the future. I love it

This is my daughters first year at the school and for a freshman has made such a transition from middle school to high school without any problems. The teachers are pretty much responsive to the parents inquiries and the work seems to be on par. Overall, it's a great school with a great atmosphere.
