Pretty good. As do all school it had its hiccups but overall pretty happy with it. Teachers are very nice. Clean school and good location.
My child had a terrible year at Banyan Creek in the ESE program. Teacher and staff were hiding what was going on in the classroom. They were very defensive, with exceptionally poor communication skills. My child learned absolutely nothing there, and did not enjoy school. After switching schools, he is doing so well, learning, and loves school. What a huge difference a good teacher and a supportive culture can make! If the staff at Banyan spent less time trying to CYA and more time caring about how to best help their students, things could improve.
I hope this school do better on enforcing students finish their home works at the aftercare homework time. I am tire of yelling at my kid to do her homework at home after my all day at work. I paid full time aftercare, the school should at least make sure their students do their homework. Don't just take the easy work letting kids play all afternoon or sitting in front of TV for hours.
Banyan Creek does NOT have a true gifted program by any means; Giving a year a ahead of course work is not gifted curriculum, it should entail the type of work that is given, more critical thinking and higher order skills. If you want a better quality public school gifted program, you are better off taking your children to Calusa, Morikami (not gifted, but PYP IB curriculum) or Citrus Cove in the neighboring cities. I took my child out after one year. The teachers we had that year were not qualified to teach gifted, very arrogant, and did not use good teaching practice to say the least. The administration here is not strong and lets poor teachers maintain poor relationships with parents and students. Don't let other parents' complacency steer you to this school.
