    "My son started the school in first grade during the 2013-14 school year and I was not as active in his class due to my work schedule. His first grade teacher did everything she could to meet with me about his behavior issues disrupting the class and within a few weeks, things were fine. He didn't learn as much as I had hoped, but again, I also was not an engaged parent at that time. This school year 2014-15 brings a new principal to the school who has experience teaching elementary and high school. She has proved to be approachable and sensitive to the needs of the students and parents of the school. My son's second grade teacher is doing his best to establish the routine and set the tone for the year within the first two weeks of school. We've had a conference already regarding the quality of work he expects and what my son should do to improve in weaker areas. I'm a very satisfied parent now that I have a different work schedule to be more engaged with what is going on in my child's learning. We had a chance to go to another school but my son insisted on coming back!"

    "My child started mid year of the 2012-2013 school year. At first we were happy with that teacher. She was friendly and accepting of our educational concerns. I was not too happy about the activity and awards schedules. However with budget cuts, it was understandable. The 2013-2014 school year was a battle. My child had some concerning comments and marks on her report card. Getting answers to my questions was like pulling teeth. Why wouldnt a teacher be concerned about an A student receiving C's? My child deserves more cooperation and attention then the cmsd can afford to give."

    "This school is a piece of trash the teachers are ridicoulous and annoying!!! :) The principal got mad after a teacher called the ambulance because she was told to do so. I honestly think that the principle may not even know how to do her job. I highly recommend you NOT to send your child here."

    "I went to Benjamin Franklin Middle School in Cleveland about 5 years ago. Thiis school has really helped me find where I belong in todays society, as well as my future career. The teachers and staff do a great job at knowing what the students need in their educational life style. Going to this school was the best choice my family made for me. Now I am a senior in high school, wish I could be in the shoes of a middleschooler because of how much I miss that school! Kimberly Santiago"

    "Benjamin Franklin School Cleveland Metropolitan School District School Principal is outstanding. She ensures a safe, welcoming learning environment and encourages community organizations to visit the school bringing educational and health related resources to the classrooms. There are some outstanding teachers, too, who recognize the value of hands-on science and the value of learning experiences outside of the school (e.g. Science Museums, Art Museums, etc.). Like any teaching and learning environment, Benjamin Franklin will improve with parents being more involved, supporting teachers important work as well as their own child's work. Regular teacher professional development related to content in various academic disciplines will help in the classroom with support in integrating new concepts and techniques learned. Access to 21st century technology is critical for both teachers and students to help all keep pace with others outside of the district. This is a solid academic environment and will continue to improve as long as parents, the community, teachers, administrators, and the students themselves work together to continue to achieve and take pride in their achievements."
