Benton High School is a very well put together school. It is possibly the best school to attend in the state of Arkansas and is highly renowned for its ability to not only be competitive in sports, but also produce high quality scholars that will continue on to college. The school's JROTC program is possibly the largest I've ever seen, and it is also one of the most active in its community. Very proud to be a Benton panther!

I loved this High School, They provide Laptops during your High School Time. They also allow learning in groups instead of individual. You are allowed to write on the wall and desks and express your ideas easily. While at this school I was given the opportunity to participate in the Associates program at Northwest Community College and graduate with an Associate Degree.
What I would like to see changed is when in the Associates Program they provide transportation there but not back. So I think they should provide transportation back from NWACC for those who do not drive themselves.
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!
