Why Parents Love a Banner Education

The journey to tomorrow’s successes begins with lessons learned today. Our graduates leave Banner with the academic preparation, the strength of character and the confidence that prepares them for success in high school in beyond.

Here are a few insights into why our parents chose Banner for their child(ren)’s education…

“What was and continues to be the mission of The Banner School is exactly why our daughter benefited so much. Banner has always made the students the priority: the students’ success is at the heart of every decision.”

Vicki Forseth (Parent of Tara, Class of 2008, Graduate of NYU Tisch School of the Arts)

“We very much appreciate how welcoming the Banner community was to Mary when she came in 7th grade. Everyone was kind and the transition was very easy. Mary enjoyed participating in the plays and sports. All of the Middle School teachers were wonderful.”

Mary Beth and Matthew Warner (Parents of Mary, Class of 2017)

“We were so amazed, not surprised, to watch our daughter grow into an independent, caring, compassionate, and incredibly caring young woman aware of her surroundings and the needs of others.”

Tanya and Marc Heyison (Parents of Samantha, Class of 2019)

“We have so many fond memories of Helen’s 9 years at Banner that it’s hard to narrow down to just a few. From her wanting to do all of the extra credit work in Mrs. Baird’s class to her desire to be one of the first to get to school each day. A couple of years ago when I asked her what she likes most about school, her response wrapped it up. ‘Everything.'”

Elizabeth and Mark Bandy (Parents of Helen, Class of 2017; Claire, Class of 2019; and Lily, Class of 2021)

“What stands out most about Banner is the amazing teachers. All of them know my daughter as more than just a student. They know her strengths and weaknesses; her personality; her likes and dislikes; what motivates her; what scares her; how to get the best out of her; and how to not only teach her, but also allow her to enjoy coming to school every day. We are so glad that we made the move to Banner in 6th grade and only wish we had done it sooner.”

Angie Tressler (Parent to Nenita, Class of 2017)
