10 Parent Reviews for Ben Milam Elementary School

As a former teacher at Ben Milam, I disagree with the previous parent's review. This school does have very dedicated teachers, but to state that the current principal has "not lifted a finger to provide anything extra" is absolutely not true. One should be careful when making assumptions about why ...  Read more

The current principal stepped into a golden opportunity. There has been very little teacher turnover since my children have been at Ben Milam (10 years). Each teacher at this school gives 110%, allowing the principal to leave at 4 while the teachers stay till 7 and work Saturdays. There is much frustration ...  Read more

Ben Milam is one of the best schools in the DISD. The Principal and staff are terrific. I love the fact the they even offer a free after school program for parents who are unable to pick up their kids at 3 or 4. If any parent thinks that our kids at Ben Milam are very rough and misbehaved, perhaps ...  Read more

The Principal and Teachers at Ben Milam Elementary are terrific. However, Parent participation and district funding is low. This is my daughters first year and every morning she is happy to go to school. Thank you to the Principle Ms Galvan and to all the teachers for job well done.

I think one of the main problems is the district and the funding. I can tell that the teachers and the principal are trying hard, but the resources they have are minimal. I have been disappointed with the amount of yelling going on and I don't know if its the culture or lack of teaching proper principles, ...  Read more

Ben Milam has come along way. we have been very happy here. We have had a strong consistent prinicpal for two years now and an afterschool program. The school could use more parent involvement but there are a handful of very devoted parents.

We have been very impressed with Ben Milam. Both of my children have excelled in this small school environment. I would highly recommend this school to anyone wanting a small school experience. Children are people at Ben Milam and not numbers!

All of my five children have been at Ben Milam. I have only two left at that school now. What I have learned is that most new coming teachers have been the greatest. All of the new teachers fresh out of college have done wonders. Only 3 of the older teachers have done great all along. There is a difference ...  Read more
