I recently moved to Bennington unexpectedly for my senior year, Bennington has been very welcoming and has challenged my in many more ways than I have been before academically. I would definitely encourage people in this area to attend Bennington if they had the option because I feel as if their education and programs offered as extra-curricular activities are outstanding. Getting an education at Bennington is something people should prize and be proud of. The staff has been very supportive and helpful throughout my transition as well.

I have been in the Bennington School district since I was in kindergarten, allowing me to stay with the same group of friends throughout the years. Bennington has taught me to be on top of my studies, with the grading scale being higher than most schools. The school has taught me to branch out, making new friends with people at other schools, to become a more diverse person. The teachers are amazing at their jobs, making you actually feel as if you’re a person, not a student, being lectured at the whole day. The teachers at Bennington actually care how their students are doing, and care to listen to their students’ issues. Bennington Secondary School taught me many life lessons throughout my six years at the school. It provided me with many opportunities to expand my views and it allowed me to be the person I am today.
Since I was a transfer student from a larger district, I was shocked to see the lack of other opportunities. Very few honour classes where offered, and very few elective classes were offered. It really limited me and forced me to drop some of the elective I had been taking for years before going to Bennington. There was not a whole lot of diversity within the student body. Overall, it wasn't a bad high school experience, but I think I would have grown more in a larger school district.
