Bennett High School is a community of teachers, administration, parents, community members and scholars that work and learn together to create a nurturing environment to engage student scholars in reaching their high school as well as collegiate goals. Watching a student's confidence grow as they pass classes, participate in after school activities, talent shows, assemblies, summits, art shows and sporting events is amazing to observe from grade 9 to graduation. I have had the privilege of teaching here for over ten years.
A topflight school that specializes in accelerating the education of Buffalo's scholars. Students are engaged in a rigorous inquiry based learning community. Every classroom has quality student work on display. Community organizations work closely with the staff to ensure a safe and civil learning environment. Dedicated parents and teachers strive to make Bennett High School the best school in Western New York. Bennett alumni include Senators, doctors, lawyers, NBA players, educators and great citizens, I am proud to be a parent of a Bennett Grad!!
I went there when Mrs. Whitman was principal. She had plenty of rules but if it wasn't for those rules, many of us would not have graduated.
I graduate from Bennett. I had several teachers that stayed on my case regarding my work. I remeber my senior year my spanish teacher, Mrs. Brummer was willing to give up her lunch break to teach me spanish 4. I had did so while and the other 3 classes that she wanted me to receive the scholarship. This was only one of the many teachers that I had that showed so much interest in my life at Bennett. Thank you Mrs. Brummer
I am a graduate of the school and I do remember on more than one occasion that I had to beg a teacher to give me more work. A student should never have to do that. If I wasn't passionate about my education I would not have obtain my Degree. I thank God that I'm of the fortunate.
As a preparation for a thoughtful, independent and productive life, instruction at Bennett falls woefully short. Like many things that are free, you get what you pay for.
