Benway's staff goes above and beyond. They helped my daughter apply for college, went to visit various schools with her, and even helped her register for classes. Thank you for treating my child as if she were one of your own.
I pulled my son out of that school. The teachers are not very knowledgeable of the subjects. Just talk to one of them and ask them about what they are teaching. The place is a dead end for dead end teachers. I felt that my son would have also ended up as dead weight if he stayed there. I also found the Principal, Kathy Foley, to be very unprofessional and only interested in maintaining student numbers. Do yourself a favor and bypass this dump.
Benway has been a wonderful help with my difficult child. She recieves academic and emotional support from the teachers and adminstrative staff. We used to have a really hard time getting her to go to her other school. Now she doesn't exactly love going, but it's soo much better. The teachers give her as much individual attention as she needs, and she has individual counseling sessions once a week. She loves her counselor! Benway has made a big difference in her life.
I'm not a parent of a student at this school, but a former student of Benway. I only wish all people could get the opportunity to go to a school as this. The entire facilty is amazing. If I haden't found Benway I would have never recieved my high school diploma. I was suffering from a bad anxiety disorder adn couldnt attend public school. Students were from all over N.J., yet everyone got along so well. I was blessed to find this school, and anyone who chooses it is as well.
