I have a first grader and a kindergartner at Bancroft this year. I am extremely impressed with this school in many aspects. Every staff member I have come into contact with is amazing. Kind generous and they all seem to genuinely care about the students. Both of my girls are shining here at Bancroft. I love how welcoming the school is to parents being on campus. I've attended many class parties stayed for breakfast with the girls and have even showed up a few times at lunch. My only concern is the lack of parental involvement at this school. The PTA is rarely mentioned at all. It was two months into the school year before I even received any information regarding meetings and times. I'm pleased to have my girls attend such a great school!

When Mr. Sorteno was principal the school was the best. The principals now seems to not have what's best for kids at interest. Almost all teachers are wonderful at this school.
This is a terrific gem of an urban school in Omaha - a well kept secret!
I have had two children attend Bancroft in the beginning grades. I have been very pleased with the quality of education they have received thus far. I feel that overall the principal teachers and staff are very committed to the very best education possible. It is a tougher neighborhood and thus the peer influence is a concern at times.
