After one year of my daughter being bullied and asking for help she was told to rearrange her life to avoid them from different ways to walk to class to not taking the bus home. We got counseling for her. Next year she learned to let them not bother her or ask them what it was that they didn't like about her. There answer was that she was fat and ugly. Not the easiest thing to be told. When she tried to stand up for a friend that she thought was wronged the she was told that she was in the wrong by the Vic Principles and to stay out of it. The next day we got a call that kids from high school wanted to beat her up. We asked do we need to pick her up they said no because they would have cops go up and down 6200. She walks to another school to get her niece after she gets out. Remember doesn't take the bus to stay away from kids that don't like her. As she walking home. Someone tells her this girl wants to talk to her. So she turns around no she didn't meet her she turned around to go meet her. Witnesses said she told her she didn't want to fight but was hit instead. She had court today and can pay a 100.00 fine or class. Not going back to them.Thanks for the no bullying help!!

Last year my daughter was entering 7th grade and we were torn on where to go because the school near us wasn't what we wanted. In our search of the area we found Bennion Jr High. The academic scores were 20% higher in all subjects. The challenge a new school would bring was a hard decision but we couldn't have asked for a better school. A safer enviornment - just a great atmosphere for learning and growing through that awkward, difficult stage of Junior High.

A great school that actually teaches kids and gets their students active to get great test scores and to be the best they can be. I love this school and what it has done for my child.

A great school with teachers who care, an imaginative staff, and involved parents. Despite being tethered to the Granite behemoth, continues to be the best public choice on the west side of the valley.

I have had 3 children graduate from Bennion Jr. and 1 child in the school right now. The school seems to be a positive environment and my kids have had good experiences. Their is a healthy mixture of cultures. The teachers, administration and students seem to take pride in the school. I have spoken to parents outside of the boundary who are trying to get their children into the school. There are enough parents who take an interest in their children education to keep the scores respectable. The materialism that is common at this age doesn't seem to be as much of a problem as in some other schools. We are in a financial position to move almost anywhere in the valley and yet have chosen to stay where we are until our kids finish school.
