We love this school. The teachers are dedicated and enthusiastic. Principal Carney is kind, focused and loves this school. It shows. Very organized; the entire staff knows my daughter by name. The learning is better than my fancy private I went to in the 70's.

I have lived in this neighborhood and been a part of this school for many years. Both of my children have attended Bennett. Their key to their success is parent involvement and teacher longevity. Though more than 70% of their students are at 'free lunch' status, they have maintained an 'A' ranking ...  Read more
