Bensley has been absolutely amazing! I wish there were more schools with teachers and staff that love and care about the kids like they do here. They go above and beyond and it has truly been an amazing experience. Even through Covid.
This school is very unorganized. At the beginning of the school year we moved to this district and I registered my daughter in June. Come August I came back to the school for orientation and they told me that she had not been registered. My daughter's last school sent the information that Bensley needed in an email and they never opened the email. This is very disappointing. Bensley did not call me or anything to tell me that they did not get the information and at my daughter's old school we can walk them to class on the first day due to their age but not this school. It was an horrible experience. However, the principle was very nice and made sure that everything was put together because she understood. Also, I do not feel that the teacher give the kids detail instructions to do their homework. So therefore, me as parent do not know how to assist.
My grandson just transferred from another school. He did not like going to that school which is extremely important because this is his first experience in school. As fast as the first day, when he came home he indicated he loved it. He also loves his new teacher, Ms. Hunter. Thanks Ms. Hunter, you make my little one happy which i know that will carry over the the future. You made the difference.
Administration, staff, and students work together at Bensley Elementary. We do things in the best interest of the children. There are many dedicated teachers at this school. Students and staff work hard to reach goals!!
