My family and I moved from Greenwood, Ar during my 7th grade year to Benton. It is hard being a new student in a new place three hours from what you've only ever known as home. Greenwood was a place that had terrific academics and sport teams. I was scared that I would be going to a new place. I wasn't sure if I would be ahead or behind academically. Pleasantly surprised by seeing that I was accepted and that my academics were similar to what I had came from. Benton has been a great fit for me academically and socially. I will graduate in May as a National Honor Society student and above a 3.5 gpa. I am thankful for all of the great teachers who are in Benton that I had the privilege of getting to be a student in their class. Benton cares about the future of their students and helps to make sure they help every student excel to their ability!

The educational experience is great, and they care about all their students. The teachers are all kind and very understanding. I hope everyone can experience a high school like Benton High School. The sports are even great at Benton High. The school is so big you can have a lot of friend. The whole staff encourages kindness, and excellences out of all of their students.
I love how everyone interacts with one another. People aren't as judgemental and bullying isn't a big problem there. Also, administration is very nice and understanding. I only wish that we could have more counselors so that they aren't spread thin and they can really focus on helping kids with emotional problems and advising them on better ways to deal with the stress of highschool.
