Bentley has been not only an excellent experience but has truly shown what the meaning of community is. The teachers here are the most compassionate, well-rounded people I've ever met and probably will meet. This school strives to meet your every need. From Mrs. Gaby, who will provide clothes food and support to the needy, to the office staff who will work above and beyond to help you if you have any questions or need to schedule meetings. I not only advocate for myself, but for everyone who has ever attended, or worked with Bentley, that this school is one of a kind.

I personally had a good experience with Bentley, but I feel the High school doesn’t prepare students for college like it’s supposed to.
I liked how small the school was and how tightly knit the community was. The teachers were very helpful in preparing for my first year of college. One thing I'd like to see changes in is the student body involvement in school activities, and the availability of new and required classes.
