School is relatively safe. Has lots of cameras and resource officers roam the halls. Has many safety precautions. Food is okay, lots is not freshly made. Not the best of schools y any means, but it is a great place. Not a lot of diversity. Everyone acts the same. Not a lot of room to be different.

School safety is good, teachers are average, but a third of them are not good teachers. Administration is horrible. School food is ok, but I would bring a lunch.
Benton Junior High School is the 8th grade and 9th grade school of the Benton School District. BJH is very secure and protected. Many security cameras monitor and polices officers come to observe and help. Most teachers have passion in what they are doing and are very fun.
