  • Listen, I went to Benjamin Tasker in 6th grade and am currently finishing my seventh grade year. I beg you, any body looking for middle school for their child, please don't send them here. Did you know over the last two years Benjamin Tasker has had the second highest bullying rate out of three schools? I was bullied there myself in sixth grade, and I felt truly, hopeless, and I am being bullied this year too. Please, if you want you're child to escape bullying from a previous elementary school, or middle school DO NOT send them here. Also Benjamin Tasker is extremely crowded, with teacher to student ratio of 39:1. And usually four student out of the entire class causes a blockage in the learning process. It is probably the worst school, and lunch on several occassions has made children sick. If you want your child to be happy, capable of learning, and able to feel safe, send them somewhere else--if possible. Bless you.
