Benton High School is an excellent place to attend. Teachers here are very understanding and work to your advantages to see you succeed in every way possible. There is never a time where there is not an opportunity to be involved. From my personal experience, I have been the school mascot for the past two years and it is the best thing I could have ever been a part of. I would recommend any school in the Benton School District to any family looking for a place for their child to attend. Not only are Benton school academics ranked high, but the school’s administration will work with you to solve any issues you may encounter during your school year. Benton always wants its students and parents to be involved in any way they can and want to be. It is truly the best place to attend school!

I love the hard working teachers that try to better each student whether that be inside school on work, or outside of school in students personal life. Secondly, I love the medium sized town it is located in. It is not too big, nor is it too small. The school gives me one on one experience with my teachers, along with the personal connection one needs. Lastly the classes it offers are very advanced and prepares one for college without being in college. It helps you learn to know and understand what it is like on a college level and what you must do to succeed. I love the many classes this school has to offer, the teachers that are always supportive, and most of all I love this school!
Overall, the faculty at Benton High School fully prepare their students for their future in a college setting. The administration does a good job about posting local scholarship information and other important information about preparing for the college journey. The college and career coaches will visit classes and take trips to nearby colleges. Benton offers a large number of college classes for concurrent credit which are taught by qualified and dedicated teachers. The subjects taught by the teachers allow students in Benton to be a step ahead when transferring over to a college campus. STAT classes frequently review the steps in which to apply for college and encourage further education.
