    "My son started Kindergarten in the Fall of 2014. We feel so fortunate that Ben Franklin is our assigned school, because it really is top-notch, from the caring and dedicated teachers to the friendly and helpful support staff. There is a real sense of community at the school, which carries down from the administration to the PTO. The campus is nicely landscaped and maintained. The murals are cheerful and make the school welcoming for kids. My son has learned so much since the start of the school year. He went from not being able to recognize all his letters to now reading phonics books. He has progressed from number recognition to addition, subtraction, and basic word problems. Best of all, he loves school and thinks learning is fun! The teachers make their expectations clear in line with the standards, but don't put too much pressure on the kids, stressing them out. The amount of homework is just right, and the enrichment programs after school are wonderful. I can't say enough about how happy we are to be at Ben Franklin."

    "My daughter goes to Franklin and we are extremely happy with our school! I had my daughter in a private school for Kindergarten and was paying quite a bit of money for that but was extremely unhappy with the level of education of the teachers and the overall level of education my daughter was receiving. So, we switched to Franklin (our designated school) and we love it!!! It is FAR better than a high-priced private school in Riverside! The teachers are all wonderful at Franklin and the PTO does a great job in raising extra money so that our school has the latest technology/equipment/enrichment materials etc. We couldn't be happier and I can attest, from experience, that you will get all that a private school (claims to) offers but without the high tuition! Couldn't be happier!"

    "My two girls go to this school and all our teachers have been amazing. The classroom size leaves a little to be desired, but that would be in any public school unfortunately. Our PTO is one of THE BEST around, starting from the ice cream social all the way down to the father/daughter dance. They think of such innovative ways to raise money to help our kids get the field trips they get to do every year. Ben Franklin is #1 in my book and as far as I'm concerned I wouldn't want my kids to go anywhere else!"

    "My grandson attends this school and every time I come into the office I am greeted by friendly and helpful staff. My grandson loves school and his teacher is excellent. The campus is beautiful and inviting. The administration and staff have worked very hard to improve the school and Mrs. Smith is very outgoing."
