    "Benson is Tustin's hidden gem for an elementary school. The teachers, office staff and parents are wonderful. The parent who wrote the parents are questionable, gang affiliated, etc." must have reported the wrong school, because Benson is nothing of the comments written. Benson is very family oriented and all-around #1. Go check it out for yourselves."

    "This is a review for Barbara Benson on Elizabeth Way. Please visit this school during school hours before you send your child there. My child is in Kindergarten, a class of 20 kids. 3 of the fathers are on parole currently. 1 is currently incarcerated. 1 father shows up every day wearing gang clothing and has tattoos of guns and tear drops on his face and eyes. He is a current gang member. This school is an open school meaning there are many kids coming in from Santa Ana. If you dont believe me or this review then I URGE you to go on a tour while school is in session."

    "I used this site to find Benson when I was looking to transfer into the TUSD. It is a decision I have never regretted. My children have both attended Benson for the last 4 years and the school is like our extended family. Benson's Principal truly cares about her students, which is evident in her daily interaction with them and the teachers. I would even say she knows each one of those kids by name! Benson has an active PTO, always striving to keep the school fun by funding after school programs, musical classes and other interesting events. Benson is a welcoming gesture to transfers when other schools tend to "call you later IF we have room." This is our last year at Benson and my children and I have had an amazing experience in this little charm of a school. I would highly, highly recommend Benson to anyone!"
