    "I love how it is a college preparatory high school. I also love that it offers its students great opportunities. We also have great teachers and have excellent test scores. In fact, our principal Anita Berger actually won principal of the year for DC Public Schools. I love how it's a small school and everyone knows each other it makes it easier to get along and know everyone in your graduating class. It has a 100% graduation and college acceptance rate. The students also earn millions of dollars in scholarships."

    "My experience at Banneker has been hard to say the least. You have to deal with a lot of work and if you're not ready for it it will pack a punch. Some of the teachers are amazing, others can be rude and unhelpful. The building can seem old and dirty at times and we're always dreaming about a new building. But, for what we have, we make the most of it. Banneker's not perfect but if you work hard enough and have a good group of friends who can support you through the worst you'll be fine. I can honestly say I became a better person because of Banneker."

    "Banneker was an amazing and hardworking experience. The focus is not just graduating and going to college but getting through it. There is a large amount of support from the teachers and faculty to get help with academics and even personal troubles. The students are intelligent and have different views on topics which help broaden your own horizons and learn even more outside the classroom. If there were anything I'd change, it would be the amount of clubs and and increase in resources. Though there are decent amount, the school would benefit greatly by having more including technology. There should be more clubs to provide some relief to the students after the rigorous programs or something that will teach them about more real life issues including tax or credit. The experiences I've made will stay with me for years to come and will be the start of my new journey."

    "I didn't like Benjamin Banneker, it is a bad school with terrible resources and a terrible administration and staff. They are not supportive and they make doing anything as easy as leaving school early a difficult process."

    "As a student at Banneker I would say this school challenges you to do your best. It prepares you for college and helps you get scholarships. At first people are intimidated by the work load but once you get used to it, it gets a bit easier. Due to size of the school you are able to develop amazing friendships and have a sense of community. I would recommend this school to anyone who wants a school who would challenge them and prepare them for college."
