I love being at Bendle because it is such a tight-knit community. Everyone is there to help you when you need it. The teachers are so open to positive relationships with students, and I feel so welcome every day I walk in! If there is one thing that I would like to see change, it is the variety of classes. We need more choices that fit our varying interests, skills, and hobbies!

My experience at Bendle is one that I won’t forget. It bring a feeling of family and unity throughout the entire community and I love that. With it being such a small school knowing that people have your back is very helpful. At the same time I would like to see Improvements in student involvement and also the teachers pushing the students to be more than just average. Most students have the mentality of just getting by and that just isn’t going to work in college.
I have went to Bendle my entire life and it has slowly started getting worse and worse over the years. I am a Sophomore at Bendle in the 2017/2018 year and don’t take me wrong you will get a decent amount of knowledge from this but sometimes they aren’t dry food at prepping you for big tests. We need more involvement in with the students so like more things that students will like. The only things that they do are dances. They are too based around sports and don’t have many clubs and if it is a club then it has maybe 1-5 people in it and they have to meet basically outside of school. There are nice people that go to Bendle and you will get the typical bully but the greatest thing is that the Links Program where you help special needs kids do their work and it is from students not parents. It is probably one of the best things there.
