We love this school. The principal is great. My daughter is very happy here. She has a wonderful teacher and bullying is not tollerated at school.
The scores for Bancroft are low but they have geat teachers. Not all kids test well. There are other things to take into consideration. It takes a combination of 3 to make a child successful student parent & teacher need to work together. All 3 of my kids have gone here since 1st grade.
This is my son's first year at Bancroft Community School. I was extremely hesitant to start him here because of the lower standardized test scores this school has recieved in the past. I recieved a call from the principal before the start of the school year and decided to meet with him and tour the school before making a decision and I am glad that I did. Because of the lower scores parents have the option to send thier children to another school in the district. This makes it harder for the school to improve thier scores because many of the better students that would otherwise help the school meet benchmarks are moved and the school suffers. My son has a classroom that is about 50% English learners. This is just a part of living in California. While they do not score as high on standardized tests they are intelligent and want to learn. I don't feel like they hold my son back and the teachers teach all children on thier level as much as possible. Also this school has extra faculty to help those students that are struggling with language skills. Additionally my son is in 1st grade and loves this school! The children are very nice and I have seen very little bullying
My two daughters attended this school and we could not be happier with the teachers and administration. My 8 yr old has attended k-3rd grade and has had a great experience. We are moving so it is our last year at Bancroft but we will miss the school and staff greatly!
I had two sons at Bancroft who had trauma in their past. Every teacher I worked with worked with both their accademic and emotional problems bringing them along at or faster than grade level. The Peace Circle program improved behavior on the playground and on the grounds of the school. The principal seemed to know all the children. The counselor was very pro-active.
