Parent: Our son is currently in the 2nd grade. He has been at the school for two years, and it has been a wonderful experience. The enthusiasm of the teachers, who are truly experts in the subjects they teach, is infectious. They consistently set high standards for all students at every stage of their academic career. This is a school that prioritizes academics and the students themselves; it is targeted to students with intellectual curiosity and a strong work ethic. We are very happy here!

Senior: This school has been a safe place where I can be myself while getting the education I need to succeed. We have blocking schedules. Meaning I have four classes a day, each lasting 90 minutes each, and every other day shifts to two different four class schedules. This lessens the stress of having eight classes a day and homework from those eight classes, because I only have to worry about four classes a day. The teachers here are helpful and genuinely care for the students. Whenever I needed help, there was always a teacher willing and excited to help me with whatever I needed. In my experience, bullying has not been a problem. I have not seen anything like that happen and if I heard about it, it was resolved immediately.

Senior: Arlington High School allows students to learn in a small setting, so there is more teacher-student contact. The students are friendly and helpful, but it is the excellent teaching staff that puts my school above the rest.
The teachers are personable and want students to succeed. They take the time to help each student, and their work day does not stop when the final bell rings. They help students before and after school to help them be their best.
I would like the administration at my school to become more involved in worldly events. Specifically, two teachers at my school started a group called Student Activists in Motion to combat human trafficking. This group focuses on education of human trafficking to keep students and others away from it. The administration was not supportive of it, even though it is a great way to be involved in worldly events and keep students updated on how to stay safe in our world.

High School Junior: I'm being completely honest when I say that some of my favorite experiences I've had at this school include working on projects and assignments from my AP Chemistry and Pre-Calculus classes. I also really enjoy the fun, engaging activities I have participated in during AP U.S. History. I would choose to go to this school again if I could do high school all over mainly because it is among the top three schools in the state of Nebraska and because I give Bennington High most of the credit for my excelling test scores and the fact that I thoroughly enjoy my education, however challenging I think it is at times.
