Bennett/Kew Elementary School Reviews
This school has a staff that DOES NOT WATCH YOUR CHILDREN! There are also some theft issue's that have been going on with the school as far as money. The principle has a very bad attitude and it seems as if she does not care about any of the students that attend the school. My child goes there now and I am looking to get him into another school ASAP!!! When they do have activities for the kids, they are thrown together and very Un organized. Bennett/Kew is a bad choice!! ***BAD SCHOOL!!!!!!***
Decent school. There are many caring individuals. Few after school enrichment programs for all students to participate in. School could greatly benefit from math, science or art programs. Students need more access to computer lab.
Would love to see faculty more involved with the parent organization so we could work as a strong team. I would love to see education workshops after 5 pm so that more parents could attend.
