Bebensee is where my Grandchild goes and just loves it. She is learning so much and the teachers get them excited to want to learn.

This school is terrible all they do is teach kids how to take the State test their only goal is to boost those state scores. My daughter hated it here and she didn't learn a thing. Stay away if you can unless you wanted a frustrated child.

This was our first year at Bebensee. God bless my daughter's teacher Ms. Cowman. She did a fantastic job!

Bebensee's test scores definetly reflect the teachers,they are poor to say the least.I am however impressed with the music teachers and their program.This school is one of the worst AISD has to offer,we will be moving this year just to get out of Bebensee and hopefully AISD all together.

My child learned more and did more projects,book reports etc in lower grades than she is currently doing in the 5th. It appears that they do less work but are graded harder. A few of the classes do not send homework and have provided no information about the curriculum or what is being taught. My child ...  Read more

It's definitely better this year, with some different staff in place at the highest levels. Then again, it might just be the grades our kids are in. Our 3rd grade teacher is much better than the one we had for 2nd last year. 1st grade is still great as always.
