I've had my child here since Kindergarten (she's going to 2nd grade now) and I honestly have nothing but good things to say about this school, it's teachers and also office staff which have been outstanding with my child (last teacher was Mrs.Vermeal..incredible teacher and very patient plus understanding with my short attention-spanned, sensitive and hyper-active daughter). Definitely a top notch school with lots of attention geared at each individual child. Again excellent principal also, always greeted me openly and welcoming each and every morning just as he did to every parent that would walk by him. 100/100 in my book.

I have two children who have attended Ben Franklin and the teachers were kind but I do wish that there was more communcation with the parents as far as updates on child's progress. I have had to email the teachers to check up on my children. It'd be nice to have a progress report every once in a while and not just their report card for the whole term. Also, I don't think that there's enough one-on-one attention and I think that's it's partly due to larger sized classrooms. Really, that has to due with the city's growth and budget cuts, but I think the city, in general could do better with the school systems. Overall, Ben Franklin is a good school, but I wouldn't say GREAT.
