I love being at Bennett. Everyone is sharing a sisterhood and helping each other. I also love taking college classes and to be able to transfer my credits over to any college that I get accepted into. When I first came to this school I immediately knew who I was going to callmy new friends. I was easily welcomed and brought up to being a bright scholarly young lady!

I went to Bennett all four years of my high school career. They really focus on preparing their students for college. Whether it be getting scholarship money or preparing for the ACT/SAT. Each class really became like a sisterhood we fought, laughed and cried like we had known each other our whole live. While there the teachers really get a chance to know you personally they go out of their way to make sure their students are doing well in not only their class but all of their classes. I am honestly happy I applied and attended Bennett I have gained knowledge I am able to share with family and friends preparing for college along with life long friendships.
I transfered from a school that was prodominetly a different race than mine so I felt a little off, but when I came to the Middle College at Bennett, not only was I in the majority, but people were so nice there! I didn't know a single person but girls introduced themselves to me and one of them even asked me to show her my schedule and told me some information about the teachers I would have. They were so welcoming, I couldn't wait to start. To top that off, the teachers were so great to the new students and they all had close bonds with each student there. There are only a 100 or so of us, but the kind of relationships I saw with teachers and students was unimaginable. They were all so close, they made me feel like I was apart of a family, which only made me happier. Never, in my roughly 10 years of school, have I actually enjoyed my time in school like I have here. I would love to point out specific teachers, but honestly, they are all so amazing and make an effort to get to know you and get you to success!
