I liked being able to be apart of my sport and the teachers. Some of the teachers really brightened my day everyday and made going to school a lot of fun! I loved meeting all of my lifelong friends and being able to become close with the people who mean the most to me. Bennington brought me some of the best memories of my life and I will forever cherish them!

I began attending Bennington Public School during third grade, and since the beginning, both the staff and students have made me feel welcomed. Although the arts and technology departments are slightly lacking, the High School still provides numerous opportunities for involvement in those areas, from art club, to robotics club. The Bennington Public Schools also have excellent academics, which is something I'm extremely grateful for. I look forward to seeing Bennington grow as a district and set more academic records.
I like how small its. Everyone knows each other and education-wise you can get the help you need. Everyone's grad classes are small so you know everyone. The Administration is very involved with the students and athletics. They are a little strict but this past year our DEAN left and since then everyone has been way more relaxed. All the teachers are super nice and you can get along with well. In the mornings I love hanging out in teacher's rooms and just talking with them. They genuinely care about you and are always up to date.
