Bennett is a wonderful school in Southwest Detroit. The teachers are all highly qualified in their subject matter. Our staff, not just the teachers but the school service assistants, custodians, engineer, office staff, etc. go above an beyond what is required of them to ensure that our students have a positive environment conducive to student learning and success. Our principal is also very supportive of the teachers making sure that we have the necessary materials and supplies that we need to teach our students. I highly recommend Bennett Elementary School as a place to bring your child for his/her education.

Bennett has very dedicated teachers. They are truly professionals. The children are a pleasure to teach. It is a joy to come to work each day to work with this group of students. You can tell where the students get their character from because the parents are equally as wonderful. The parents are deeply concerned about their children's education and do what they can to help them. The school is clean, safe and very well maintained.

Bennett is an impressive neighborhood school. Although the students present a lot of needs, they come in willing to learn and the staff is willing to help them overcome challenges. If a student is not doing well in school, the staff asks the question, "Why?" Parents are involved in the school, and there are about 25 that come to ESL classes daily and another 40 that come every month to PACSA meetings. That is an impressive showing. The school is full of bilingual staff to assist parents that speak Spanish as well. Bennett has a parent resource center, after school programs and activities. They partner with Playworks to provide gym and recess while teaching leadership and teamwork. There is a soccer program, karate classes, tutoring after school, cooking classes and even a school garden. Bennett cares about the students, parents and community and works to provide a quality education to our neighborhood's children.

This school is really a diamond in the rough from the staff to the students. As DPS are being looked at as low scoring schools i see a school full of life and love. The way staff treats students

Bennett is an excellent school for any child to attend. The teachers are caring, friendly and dedicated in advancing the achievement of their students. We work with parents to assist with home involvement. We offer and after-school program to help children with their learning, a soccer program and Playworks to benefit the health and physical fitness of our students. There is also the Parent Resource Center housed in the building, it is there to assist parents with support from learning the English language to having a place to feel relaxed and enjoy. There's also a DHS office in our building, along with a Community in Schools office.We are an extended family and you will love it here at Bennett.

Bennett is a "family". Staff members at Bennett work together to provide a stimulating, unique learning environment. What I love most about Bennett is its students. The students truly care about each other. They are courteous and helpful to all students and excel at including everyone in daily activities and learning. The "Playworks" program provides students with opportunities to learn lifelong skills while enjoying safe, healthy play. I feel fortunate to be a part of the Bennett family.

The Bennett families are very involved with their children and are true partners in educating our students. Most of my parents check in with me daily to inquire about the progress of their child. Parents are role models for life-long learning as they attend classes provided at Bennett. The family involvement and concern makes it a pleasure to teach at Bennett.

Bennett is a wonderful place to send your child to and an incredible place to work. Technology, technology, technology...can't say enough about the enormous amount of classroom mini ipads, promethean boards, computers and interactive websites used by the staff and students.

Bennett's highly qualified staff is lead by an excellent and enthusiastic principal. Each classroom is equipped with several computers, interactive promethean boards, manipulatives, and brand new textbooks to help prepare your child academically. The school has a computer lab with 40 state of the art computers with a certified highly effective computer teacher. Bennett has not one, but 2 playgrounds, along with a gymnasium for lunch recess. The school is one of a handful that is also a parent community center. Bennett offers numerous programs after school such as tutoring, skype-tutoring, soccer, volleyball, and English classes for parents. Bennett collaborates with several organizations such as University of Michigan, Gleaners, Bridgepointe, Detroit Lions, Inside Out Poetry, Eastern Michigan, and so many more. Bennett is an excellent school for anyone to send their child to!

Im an active volunteer....Our parent resource room that is structured for parents tops all others....So in short I Love Bennett

My name is Jamie and I'm a college student now, but I attended Bennet K-5 and so did my two sisters and brother. Bennett is a tremendous school filled with teachers who are truly dedicated to helping children succeed. Thanks to Bennett my reading level was through the roof. I'm glad my mother chose this school for me. It did not just help me academically, but socially as well.
