Bennett is lead by an amazing principal named Josette Buendia. She has an excellent rapport with the parents, students, staff, and community. She has developed partnerships with numerous organizations to provide assistance to parents and students.
Students are offered so many things free of charge at Bennett. Each student has the opportunity to attend numerous educational field trips at little or no cost. Gleaners has partnered with the school to provide weekly food bags for needy families. University of Michigan comes in to teach art to 4th and 5th graders. Tutoring is offered after school along with karate, boy scouts, girl scouts, soccer, volleyball, and even violin classes. Breakfast and lunch is provided to students of low-income free of charge. Bennett also has Playworks which is an organized play program. Students settle conflicts on the playground with themselves using the skills taught through Playworks. Bennett also has a state of the art computer lab with over 40 fully functioning computers. Numerous volunteers come in on a daily basis to read with students. During Christmastime , an organization called Bridgepointe brings gifts for every child and comes with over 200 volunteers to make it a special day for every single child who attends Bennett.
The staff at Bennett is one of the best in Detroit! Each classroom is taught by highly effective and certified teachers. Each classroom is equipped with up to date technology including, computers, ipads, promethean boards , and elmos to assist with teaching the curriculum.
If you live near Southwest Detroit or elsewhere, I would definitely consider Bennett Elementary school!
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.
