Benjamin Bubb Elementary School Reviews
Bubb makes its foundation on diversity of student body, parent volunteers, and students helping other students. Last school year alone, Bubb school logged more than 45,000 volunteer hours. As a Bubb parent, I love that even in the heart of Silicon Valley, where most households have 2 working parents, often working crazy start-up hours, our parents see the tremendous value of putting their devices down and physically being present and pivotal in their kids' educations. Bubb has amazing teachers, but parents recognize that teachers cannot do it alone. As the school saying goes: Bubb school is the school for me, we're proud of our diversity!
I have 2 boys here at Bubb. My eldest son been at Bubb for 5 years and he's been in a GATES program since he was in 3rd grade. He learned a lot and that keeps him going. He is a Student council, and a Conflict Manager at school. The youngest boy I have is in 2nd grade now and he is doing really well in school. Next week he will be taking a California Standard Test. We really love this school and the boys love it too. They learned a lot from Math, Science, English, etc. I recommend this school to everybody. They have a well educated teachers and the office staff. They treat the students and parents like a family. Very nice school.
