Lewis J Bennett High School Of Innovative Technology Reviews

These past 2 years have been great at Bennett. The teachers and the faculty care about you. Each grade has a meeting every 5 weeks where the principal lets us know how many classes we are failing. He also motivates us to do better. This is really helpful in my opinion. My favorite part is that we celebrate success! Each month, the principal hands out student of the month awards. The only part I don't like is that the principal doesn't let you switch classes if you do not like that particular class. This makes no sense to me honestly. Overall, a great school.

This school has really changed. it's a technology school. The administrators really care about us and they will make sure that the students are in the right path for graduation. Teachers are very helpful. Most will stay after school to help any students with whatever they need help with. The principal and the assistant principal are the best! They will listen to students. We have some great clubs and sport teams as well. Security is pretty good inside the building. I have always felt safe. One thing I don't like is that student's are not allowed to use their cellphones. I guess those are just the rules. Overall, Bennett is a great school to attend!
My experience at Bennett High School has been a interesting experience. I took Forensics and business classes with a number of teachers. Those classes helped me out with the how the world words. From how things grow to the requirements of owning a company and the outcome for that. The teachers here are amazing, through out my four years of high school if they weren't so strict i would have been doing horribly in my classes. The one thing id like to she change personally I would say the bathrooms and the stalls need to be remodeled. Inside some of the stalls are a disaster and the doors are either broken or to small. That's the only thing i would want to fix oh and the school lunches of course.
