Benicia Middle School Reviews
I am very happy with Benicia Middle School and Benicia Schools in general. We are transplants and everyone has been very helpful. My son had trouble adjusting and the staff went out of their way to make sure he was emotionaly ok. I don't kid myself their are drugs and fighting in every school but I feel as an involved parent you can make sure your child gets the best education this school has to offer. I would and do recommend it to everyone.
Not much. Teachers do not keep up on Power School, they are difficult to reach and parents are the last to know if their child is failing or experiencing emotional difficulty. They do not have a zero tolerance on bullying as they claim: fights originating at school have been aired on Youtube. It's easy for kids to get drugs at this school. Even our child's psychotherapist agrees that Benicia Middle School is lacking in the most basic of supervision.l
