Yesterday, my daughter Madeline (9th grade), ran into one of her former teachers, Mrs. Kearns, in the lower school parking lot. I witnessed as Mrs. Kearns took my daughter’s face into her hands and said, “OMG look at what a beautiful young woman you have become”. She then asked her about her High School and her experiences there, with genuine interest. My daughter had tears in her eyes when she got back in the car. That is the kind of experience that defines The Benjamin School!
This is a great school to get your education and have a great high school experience. The load of homework varies, but it helps prepare you for college. Not only will you get a good education in classes, but you will also learn about the importance of our honor code and how to live up to it, in addition to learning about character.
I believe that this school's honor system really allows students to develop character traits that are reliable, honest, fair, and full of integrity. The character traits are what the school stands on, and I believe that they make each and every one of us who we are.
I have been attending The Benjamin School since Kindergarten. I am now a Junior in the 11th grade. I believe that this school is preparing me not only for college, but also life when I finish college. I owe who I am now to this school, and I would never think, nor have I ever thought of, going to another school. The teachers really are here to help you, and they genuinely want every one of their students to succeed.
The Benjamin School is a wonderful place for learning, playing sports, participating in the arts, and being yourself. I am challenged everyday by my teachers and I know I am getting a good education by coming to this school. It not only teaches you core curricular subjects, but you also learn about valuable life lessons and you learn about yourself. I suggest to anyone looking at a new school that you should consider Benjamin as an option.
I would like to say thank you to Mr. Simon Behan. Although he recently returned to Ireland, he changed my views on English as a whole. He is the reason why I went from being a B-/C+ Student in English to being an A-/A student.
