Samuel K. Faust Elementary School Reviews

3 reviews
Teachers here are amazing for the most part! This school has a lot of racial diversity. This school has a lot of drugs which is extremely concerning since the school only goes up to the sixth grade. Faust is located in an area where things aren’t always safe. This results in lockdowns. There are lots of low income students at this school as well. The guidance counselor will not do anything about bullying and that is a pretty big issue at Faust and in the whole school district. Faust is pretty run down on the inside and is pretty much neglected by the district office. The playgrounds were original to the school until a few years ago (1956). I have heard school employees say that this school needs work but this is Bensalem. Overall, the school is not good but most of the teachers and employees are very warm and friendly so I will give Faust 3 stars.

Teachers are amazing and so caring! They push our kids to try new things and really are able to individualize so many aspects of their day.
Yes teachers and non-teachers care about the students, but they do nothing about the bullying that goes on there. They tend to blame the children that are getting bullied.
