    I truly think this school is excellent. The reason I say excellent because of the dedication of the teachers and the administration.

    This school has great teachers but a horrible principal. I would never in a million years send my child here.

    My daughter has attended Bentalou the past 3 years. She has had a positive learning experience and has progressively increased her interest in reading and learning. The principal here is the 'greatest' and there is overwhelming community support. The resource teachers the custodial staff the clerical staff the Health Suite staff you name any sector of the program they are running there and everyone is a welcoming addition to the Bentalou Elementary School family. The academic achievement of the students here speak for the success in having community support and parent involvement. This school is not only a 'great choice ' it is a great choice in a warm and positive environment.

    My son attends this. His last year teacher was wonderful and very dedicated to her job. she went above and beyond to keep her students interested in learing. This school is growing I only wish they offered more programs such as the Boy and Girl Scouts. Little programs that will help our young learn responsibility early.
