Principal grudis is non existent. My child doesn't even know what he looks like as a junior. Out of control students, fights rampant. Good teachers for the most part but it's scary my tax dollars go to this place. This school, while new, makes me want to scream and cry for my kids!!! Stop this madness

If I could provide negative stars I would happily pay to do so. The administrative staff at this school are morons. There is NO leadership in any way shape, form or fashion. Behavior of the students is unacceptable, and the policies for sporting events, dances and extra programs are borderline insane. State law requires you send your child to this school, and it should be a crime to have to send your child to this school.

James M. Bennett was a great school for my children. They made great friends with peers from a variety of cultures. Bennett is a melting pot of students whose families come from a variety of countries. They appear to get along well. While the students could have been challenged more in some of their classes they were well prepared for college. The top students consistently perform very well. The school was recently rebuilt and has excellent facilities.

"BEST school year yet", so my grand daughter says. We move alot, (job related) this is her 8th school to attend and she ranks this one the top! We'd read bad reviews and feared the worst, but the teachers are great and the kids are friendly. She is in 10th grade, honors classes. I can't say enough GREAT things about this school, so glad she enrolled here!

My experience as a student and as a parent of students at James M. Bennett Sr. High was a very positive one. The administration sought to foster a sense of community within the school. Teachers in many cases went above and beyond the call of duty to help students. The extra curricular activities were top notch and in many cases won regional and national awards. I am grateful that my children and I had the opportunity to attend such a fine institution.
