    Banyan creek has gone out of its way to make my son who is in kindergarten and me feel at ease. They have gone out of their way to make sure the transition went smooth. Many of the teachers already know my son who just started and give him hugs. My son has ADHD and mood disorder and they do not make him feel any different but they do care for him knowing about these things. I am so happy that I chose this school and I look forward to the next 5 years at Banyan Creek.

    I have two children in the gifted program at Banyan. We came from a 'private ' advanced' school and my kids have been more challenged at Banyan. Many of the gifted teachers have advanced degrees and 20+ years of teaching experience. This is not a program for children whose parents try to buy their test results to gain entrance. It is really designed for gifted kids who can handle an accelerated pace of instruction.

    Banyan Creek is the greatest elementary school in the universe. Its student population is diverse which allows each child to learn about other cultures. The curriculum is superb helping each child achieve his or her personal best. The staff is compassionate with attention to detail so that each child feels (s)he is the only child in the classroom. Our principal is beyond words. He truly cares about each child each teacher each parent and each employee. He makes sure our children are safe and gain the knowledge they need to succeed in life.
