My experience at this school has always been great. As a general rule, I tend to not give perfect scores because there is ALWAYS room for improvement somewhere. However, in my opinion, MTE comes quite close.

I came into Matthew Turner with very little knowledge about the school or staff having just moved to Benicia the summer before school started. I am continually impressed by the dedication of the staff and I mean ALL staff! Teachers, Principal, Daycare even the janitor, they all CARE and take their jobs seriously. The parents at this school are very involved and help to support and create a wonderful educational environment for all of our children.

Very positive experience with style of teaching and development opportunities for the students

When parents speak of the "high level of academics" that this school has, that is quite laughable. My child stopped receiving homework after 1st grade. My child earns top marks on all his "benchmark" testing that is performed once a year. Other than that, there is NO testing to gauge where they are for the rest of the school year. They had one principal who was half way decent and when she retired, they acquired another who was absolutely atrocious and then she scampered out of there as soon as she found a higher up position within the public school system in Benicia. Multiple parents have complained about the useless staff. There are only a handful of great teachers left since some of them jumped ship since Beatson came on board as the principal a few years ago.
