Benchmark has excellent administration and staff. Everyone really knows what they are doing in education and really care about helping each child.
The teachers are wonderful and the staff really cares. They go above and beyond to help children learn and grow. The cirriculum is wonderful. Benchmark truly is a very strong close knit community.
My son had a most amazing year at Benchmark last year. He absolutely loved his teachers and all of the activities he did while in school. The teachers really cared and they understood the kids as individuals and adjusted to meet their needs. We unfortunately needed to switch from Benchmark this school year to a school closer to our house. My son always tells me that he wants to go back to Benchmark & if we even say the name 'Benchmark' he gets all excited and happy. I loved the field trips, science lab, the garden, and the special activities and events that were happening all the time. The student-to-teacher ratio was great! In the higher grades the Singapore Math & Core Knowledge curriculum really enhances the education. The school is large enough to have a nice facility, but small enough to still feel like a family. I recommend Benchmark to everyone I talk to.
A solid education, talented and caring teachers, a nice new campus with excellent facilities, a healthy community, lots of great activities and events, etc. We could go on and on - Singapore Math, Core Knowledge curriculum, lots of creative opportunities - it is such a well-balanced, yet fun place to be. Benchmark divides their grades into 4 levels of reading, math, etc. (gifted programs too) - small classes that help the kids learn best and progress upward. We have really enjoyed Benchmark and are thankful for our time there; it's just a very wonderful and comfortable place to be!
Benchmark teachers are amazing. Parent involvement is welcomed and supported.
Benchmark is a wonderful school with fabulous teachers and a great community!
We believe in Benchmark, it has been a great school for both my children.
I don't know of any other school with a dedicated art studio, with a kiln, and a dedicated science lab for this age group. Everyone is professional, receptive and interested in educating our children.
Great approach to learning. Wonderful family environment. Campus is beautiful.
We absolutely love everything about Benchmark!! The teachers truly enjoy teaching, the principals and staff are hands on and fabulous, and the parent involvement is phenomenal. The teacher/student ratio (1:15) enables every child the opportunity to be taught at their skill level. Benchmark is an amazing school and we are very fortunate to be a part of it.
We are very pleased with this school, the teachers, faculty/staff, and the other parents. I love the parent involvement and the opportunity to participate in my child's day. The teacher/child ratio is great and I love how the children break out into groups based on their skill levels. My son is challenged at the level he is ready for and not grouped into learning at a level that may not be right for him. We are amazed at what he learns every day and are happy to be part of Benchmark!
Benchmark teaches a wide variety of subject matter that keeps the students learning and having fun. Benchmark also keeps the parents highly involved through student programs, volunteerism, and frequent fun events.
We truly enjoyed Benchmark School, which my son attended for 7 years. The school prepares the whole child in every aspect, and enriches them with a creative learning process. The school is very community friendly and encourages parent involvement. Benchmark not only educates but encourages them and helps develope a confident young person. The teachers and princlpals make a caring and creative enviroment for childrens learning. It is truly a remarkable school.
I grew up overseas and had many concerns about the quality of the public education in the US in general. My first kid attended an 'Excelling' public school in one of the best districts in Phoenix, but she came home saying how boring and how long the day was. She was not challenged at all. I was fortunate to be able to transfer her to Benchmark starting in 3rd grade, and enrolled my second kid in preschool. What a difference! We love everthing about the school, from the academics to the parent involvement. My husband and I are both engineers and we are happy with the strong focus on Math and Science in the school. But what really makes a difference, is that the teachers really care and understand the developmental levels of each student, and they know how to make learning fun for the kids. The school is very hands on on their approach to learning. My kids are the ones in a hurry to get to school in the morning, looking forward to the activities they have for the day. My kids love going to Benchmark, and they are constantly challenge to do their best. If you have high standards when it comes to education, Benchmark does not dissapoint.
My kids love it here! The teachers are the best! The core knowledge curriculum appeals to all children. No one feels left out. The teachers all love what they do, and it shows. Thanks Benchmark
We have been at Benchmark for 4 years and we love it! As a parent and former teacher, I feel that our boys are getting a well rounded education that will prepare them for junior high and high school! Involved parents + wonderful teachers + strong adminstration = happy confident children!
Teachers and administration focused on teaching and leaning without all of the public school nonsense.
This school has a fantastic science lab, full of great (live) animals for the kids to observe and learn about. And so much more.
Our daughter entered Kindergarten at Benchmark this year. She has a very late birthday and I was worried about her getting 'lost in the crowd' in a public school. The children are taught their subjects in a 1:15 teacher/child ratio...and are put into four different groups based on skill level. Therefore, every child is taught on their 'growing edge' and no one falls through the cracks. I can't say enough about the amazing staff and fabulous principals at this school. We feel very lucky to be a part of it.
Great School! We love everything about it!. Its a wonderful feeling to have your child come home everyday from school and when you ask how was your day, sweetie? The response is always...Awesome, Dad and she goes on about all the things they did in schooll. The teachers are caring, they really individualize the teaching, parent involvement is great as well. I couldn't be happier over my choice
