    "This is our first year at Ben Franklin Elementary, and I can say that by far this school goes out of its way to enrich the students here. There are plenty of opportunities for the kids to participate in during and afterschool. They are challenged academically and the Teachers really care for their well being. I would recommend this school to any parents that have elementary school age kids. The office staff is also very helpful and that is a true sign that teamwork is important at this school."
