    "Very self-reliant on raising money from PTA fundraisers and school events to make great improvements throughout the school with brand new smart boards for every classroom! The area that needs improvements are the imbalance of daily work given by teachers of the same grade level."

    "We have a great parent support group and many fundraisers to help with teaching tools, computers and most recently "Smartboards". However our school does lack in decent lunches but this is the vault of Capo Unified school system. Also the classroom sizes are very large. The teachers are enthusiastic and stay on task and genuinely care about helping our kids learn."

    "As many have stated, a school is only as good as your child's teacher. I have had two children go through Truman. My first went through the lower grades under the 20:1 ratios. My younger child did not have that opportunity. Both children were designated GATE, but I have no idea why they even bother. There is no differentiating in their education, in fact it almost makes it worse as the teachers feel like they don't need to teach them as their test scores will be off the chart. In most cases, my younger was reading a book every couple of days because he would finish his work so quickly and would have to wait for the rest of the class to finish. On most days, I felt like I could homeschool him but he liked to see his friends and have PE."

    "Benedict may have high favorable scores from many, unless you happen to have any 'special needs' children in Benedict. From my perspective as a grandparent, Benedict does not do a very good job with 'special needs' children - especially ones with Aspergers Syndrome (part of Autism) who are normally intelligent but with many of Autism symtoms."

    "My children both attend Benedict and it is a wonderful school primarly because they have been blessed to have a good start in first grade by a terrific teacher who also had older children that previously attended Benedict. She challenges the students and takes personal pride in their achievements and learning. We have never seen nor plan to ever see a teacher as dedicated as her. The others are good too. The principal makes wacky decisions about combos so stay away from those."
