11 Parent Reviews for Bentley Senior High School

Bentley Jr/Sr High School has many faults. First and foremost, they're way behind the times. Some courses are still using curriculum from 15 years ago, when state guidelines have changed a number of times since then. In addition, the access students and teachers have to technological resources (computers, ...  Read more

As a teacher here for 10 years now, I see the district as one that has drastically declined in average household income level. This has created a downhill effect on funding for the schools. Low parental involvement stemms mostly from the fact that there are several single parent housholds that are just ...  Read more

My daughter is a freshman, who has been attending Bentley for three years, now. I love the community. The staff is down to earth and there seems to be a lot of parental involvment w/the kids, at least my daughter's little clique of friends. I love Bentley.

I've been a Bentley parent ever since our oldest son entered kingdergarten, and he'll be graduating from the high school next year(!). We could afford to move into a 'better' (or more specifically, a better funded) school district, but our kids want to stay at Bentley and we're more than satisfied with ...  Read more

It's a small town school ...  Read more

Quite possibly the ONLY thing that this school has focused on is it's athletic programs, the teachers are very low quality and the school's budget is pathetically low. We don't even have busses. VERY few staff members are good at what they do, and some of them are too disorganized and distracted to ...  Read more
