The school is currently in it's second year of redesign which is pretty impressive, the teachers are working in mentoring positions and the platform that has been adopted is helping many students. When a school asks "what can make this educational experience better?" That is when you know that a school has the motivation to be innovative.

Bennington is a pretty good school. I feel the last couple of years have been bumpy, but that's because we haven't had a great English department. This year I'm a senior and I get the opportunity to learn what I've missed and advance for college next year!
I graduated from Bennington High School in 2018 and it was the best years of my life. The teachers were always willing to help and pushed you to succeed. If I could I would definitely go back and repeat all four years. If I had to change something it would be the new learning system they acquired my senior year and all the political nonsense that went into sports.
