I have to say George Bancroft is one of the best schools in the Scranton School District. Both of my sons have amazing teachers. My one sons kindergarten teacher miss darlene is amazing with my son she has taught him so much in just a few months my son has accomplished so much and The principal Mrs Grebeck goes above and beyond for the children.
