Open Quote I have been dealing with this school for ten years. Test scores are always at the top of the county. Teachers and administration are professional and hard working. The fact that there has been little staff turn over ( and when a vacancy comes up other teachers in the county want to come) attests to the fact that teachers are happy at Benton. Teachers who like their jobs mean a happy environment for students. Many of the staff have masters degrees and all are involved in professional education development to keep current with educational research.

Staff devotes after school hours to clubs, activities, and extra help to struggling students.

I have lived all over the United States and abroad. My children were in many schools thoughout their education. I believe that if parents are unhappy with the quality of the Benton staff and school performance, they are not likely to be happy anywhere. Close Quote

Open Quote Staff and administration are rude to parents. Teachers use sarcasm and cynicism with the children. This is not a caring or enjoyable environment. 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.
