Benton Grade School K-4 Reviews

For a low income school it does very well. I would like to see more in the arts.

I think Benton Grade School does very well with what they have. I have been there several times and find the teachers and staff very caring and knowledgeable. Our area has a rather high rate of low income families and all of the problems that go with it. Our schools wind up having to parent as well as teach. I would like to see a little more done with the arts. It is shown that children who participate in music and the arts show a higher level in math skills, and tend to be the smarter kids. It is called the Mozart effect.

Unless it has changed since my child was a student Benton Grade School, I have never, in my life been around teachers who cared less, who encouraged bullying, who were abusive to the students, and who did nothing to help special education kids.
