I like how Benton offered a robotics club going on eight years now. I love how supportive our students are to sports such as basketball and football. It shows the spirit we have! I would like to change the attitude towards school work to change. Your parents are paying for you to earn an education, learn as much as you can while you can.

Benton Community is a great school district to go to. Activities are a big part of Benton. All extra curricular activities are very highly supported by administration, and students are allowed to be involved in whatever they want. It also helps that Benton is big enough to have the appropriate and necessary resources for all of its activities. Benton also has the feeling of a small area school where everyone knows everyone.
Benton Community provided me with plenty of opportunities- extracurricular activities and the ability to take college courses for free. There is a lack of diversity and acceptance of diversity here. There could be more preparation for college, as most people who graduate here struggle with college during their first year.
