Banneker High School Reviews

Teachers give their all and all in their lessons and the kids their, despite what everyone rumors about the school if you haven been a teacher their or graduated there, Words are meaningless! Other schools may have fame and glory but what they don't have is heart and family. So many schools look down on this one but behind the curtains they were falling apart. That because they didn't know the meaning of sticking it out till the end, yes teachers and people have left but that because they didn't have heart to find out the true meaning of everyone's pain. Yet the teachers that have been their, teaching generation after generation have had the glory of finding true heart and bonding with kids as if we were their own.
Review Banneker High School
I came from out of state, Ohio to be exact! My transition to the school was hard at first but the teacher staff was really good. My basketball and track coach were the best the pushed me in my academic as well with my grades. My overall experience was bittersweet when I had to graduate. I grown to respect and love Banneker High.
Banneker high school was your average school in a predominantly colored area. No one wanted their kids to go there. School wasn't bad but the people made it that way, especially many of the hard headed students. During my first two years, teachers would quit constantly, fights always broke out and the school basically stayed on lockdown. Food was like any school in the state. It had your basic nuggets or pizza that was made every week. Academic wise most kids didn't want to learn. I of course wasn't one of them otherwise I wouldn't be in college today. Overtime, especially my junior and senior, year it's improved dramatically with the addition of our new principal, Duke Bradley. The school won a 5 million dollar grant and is currently evolving into a stem school.
