We started out at Independent School, and loved it, however Bench and School District 2 offer a lot more extracirricular activities. Our daughter was accepted into Extended studies, she was involved in student council, honor choir, and other activities, that the some of the 'country schools' cannot offer. We were very pleased with the opportunities that this school offers. We are getting a new principal this year so I am unable to rate his leadership at this time. I do feel the overall quality of education is up to par.
