I remember when this school was being built. My mother taught 5th grade there and I recall the original staff of Bendorf Elementary having the passion and the dedication of teaching children. But times changed, people came and went, one being my mom. Now, the school just isn't the same. The principal and some of the staff act as if the parents and the children are wasting THEIR time. Not to mention, the lack of understanding and compassion for some of the students who are in certain family situations. Now that I have my son going into Kindergarten, I would pay anything to be able to travel back into time.

PROS: One or two dedicated teachers that believe in quality education
CONS: There are so many .. wouldn't be able to list in this small space.

Well it started off well my daughter had a kindergarten teacher who had been teaching for 20 years. She was strict and kinda mean but my daughter excelled. I wanted to request her the year fmy son started K but she had retired. So instead my son got the WORST teacher she didn't know how to handle him and placed him in a seperate desk in the corner seperating him from the rest of the class. She would take away recess which is horrible to do for an energetic boy. The class was huge and was over 2/3 boys not put together well at all. Then my daughter had a teacher take a leave to have her baby 1 month after school started. When she came back she fell asleep and class and had my daughter take on way more responsiblity then she should have been taking on. My daughter would say they watched this movie or this person came and took over the class. When I talked to the Principle asking WHAT IS GOING ON it was a waste of time. She would say she would do something and wouldn't. They were all fast to diagnos ADD or ADHD for my 6 year old son. They were doing stuff behind my back with testing and other reviews without telling me. HORRIBLE school. Teachers that I was around weren't nice and the principle wasn't helpful. I do have to give a 10 out of 10 stars to Monica in the office (I think that is her name) she is the ONLY person that seems to know what is going on. She is nice helpful, hardworking and should be the princple for that school. My kids are in a wonderful school now my son is thriving with a teacher who doesn't shove him in the corner and make him feel like he is bad. He loves going to school and we haven't had the ADD thing brought up one time this year!! My daughters teacher doesn't fall asleep in class she actually teaches.

PROS: Monica in the office, clean
CONS: Principle, procedures, teachers, taking away recess

My son will be in 1st grade and he went from being shy of going to school to loving to go to school. I owe that to his teachers who helped him become comfortable and sociable. The staff there are friendly and helpful. The people there makes a difference because they care and enjoy what they do. I've volunteered a couple times and I see how the kids enjoy and learn with one another. I was impressed on how safe their bus tranportation for kids ensuring that they take the right bus.

PROS: Clean School
CONS: Large class size.

My daughter went their for k-2 grade. As the years went on the worst it got. The teacher walk around with frowns on their faces all day. The principal does not help at all. So many great teachers left there after she arrived. I couldn't wait to sell my house and move out of the area. My daughter just completed third grade at another school and improved so much. If you can get out of the zoning area I would recommend it.

PROS:
CONS: Not a great place for your child.
