Ben Franklin Elementary School Reviews
We lived in a suburb of Houston TX until April '09. When I obtained employment in Wisconsin we moved to Wisconsin, specifically into Franklin due to the tremendous amount of positive references we obtained prior to moving here.
I have 2 boys attending Ben Franklin since April 09, one now in first grade, and one in third grade. My third grader has Autism. The positive feedback we had received, was not only for the school, but the exceptional programs and integration for special needs students such as my son.
We had traveled here in March 09, met with the district administrators and special needs director. We also were given tours of the schools, prior on deciding on Franklin. My whole family was treated very outstandingly, with kindness and respect. It was a very positive initial tour.
We are now well into the 09-10 school year, which saw a principle change over the last summer as well. We are still very pleased with everything involved with Ben Franklin Elemenatary, it's wonderful staff, etc. I have to negative comments to make.
We were in a good district in a suburb of Houston as I mentioned. But we wanted even more.
It's all about my son. My son in much happier here in Franklin Schools! He continues to make huge gains in his academics and social skills. He has unlimited potential, and his teachers see this and constantly help him to achieve a higher standard.
My first grade son, (not on the Autism spectrum), is doing great here also. We are very involved in our sons educational opportunities, very proactive, and this is an awesome school.
Two thumbs up!!
No diversity whatsoever.
