We visited every school in our area when we were searching for a school to start our son in Kindergarten. Out of every available possibility we chose Benjamin Franklin. He's in 6th grade now, moving on to middle/high school next year and we have never had a single regret for making that choice. The experience has been great, and the school maintains a community atmosphere with the families. We are always impressed by how involved so many families are there with all of the programs, events, and extracurricular activities.
Benjamin Franklin Crismon has far exceeded our expectations! We are so thankful to have found this school for our girls. We appreciate the friendliness, dedication, and commitment this school has in regard to keeping our children a priority in all areas of education and safety. We hear nothing but great things from our girls each day from music, and class to P.E., they love their teachers and their experience each day. We intend to keep our girls enrolled here through 6th grade and hopefully have them move on to Benjamin Franklin Highschool!
Benjamin Franklin offers an advanced curriculum that I couldn't be more impressed with! The teachers here truly care about their students. It''s a beautiful thing to know your child isn't just a number amongst many or a filled seated in a classroom. They look beyond the surface daily and get to know their students. The community surrounding BFCS is unmatched and understated! Parents and families are actively included and involved and we feel just as close to the school as our children do. I can't thank BFCS enough for taking care of my little ones the way they do!
