Benjamin Franklin Middle School Reviews

Overall, there are pretty good academics and for the most part good teachers. However, the biggest downfall is the food offered at the school cafeteria is terrible and is almost always frozen microwaved food. In addition, the bathrooms and sinks are poor quality. There are some teachers that seem to care about students and some that don't seem to care. Also, the grading system varies from class to class, some going based off of growth and others based off of the quality of the work. Furthermore, the environment at Benjamin Franklin Middle school is decent, obviously, there is going to be some not so appropriate people in the school, but there is very little, and friends are usually very tightly knit with each other. All in all, I have had an exceptional 3 years at BF and although my review was rather negative, that is purely so that the place can become better and future students will have even more positive experiences.

I overall think that BFMS is good. The food is kind of meh, but the rest is good. All of the teachers are really nice, and I've learned a lot of things from this school. I hope others have the same experience!
Great kids there. Some teachers are awesome, and some are meh and bad. What can I say, all schools have good and bad teachers. But most teachers are good! I found all 3 of my years here fun. Good school, not stressful.
