Open Quote I question the lack of a website per school and then by classroom. I should be able to get policy and handbook information, school calendar information, get homework assignments on line and email the teachers and school employees. I am a grandmother and want to keep track of special dates, projects, etc for my grandkids. In addition I would like to check grades. This information is available in other states and I find the total Benton School District lacking in access for parents and guardians. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
