I loved the extracurricular activities offered at this school! Especially the choir and band programs. They are stellar! Every student is encouraged to build upon their talents and develops new ones through the many extracurricular activities and clubs offered. The teachers are also very committed to helping the students obtain their academic goals. They also are very considered about the individuals themselves. They will go out of their way to protect and help students.

My experience at BHS has overall been very good, the teachers care and the work is engaging! I feel like there are many resources available to help me succeed and get help. The only big thing I wish I could change about this school is the bathrooms but they really aren't too bad, everything else is very well maintained!
Bentonville High School isn’t just about creating smart, accomplished students, it’s about shaping intelligent, genuine, and thoughtful minds at any high school grade level. Teachers aspire to make education personal so that you aren’t solely memorizing facts for a test, but are applying your knowledge to the rest of the world. They become some of your dearest friends in the meantime. This school offers the best courses to challenge students. Wether it be on level algebra or IB english, students are encouraged to study what they love so they can become the best version of themselves.
