Welcome to the Benton Area School District. The Board of School Directors, administration and staff are working diligently to promote a learning environment and educational experience that focuses on a successful year for all Benton Area students. As Superintendent of Schools, I feel honored to lead a school district where the theme of “Every Child, Every Standard: Knowing & Growing” rings true throughout our entire school district. Our educational community takes a great deal of pride in delivering the best possible education possible every day. A key factor that contributes greatly to our educational community and success is the support we receive on a daily basis from families and community members throughout the Benton Area School District.
The staff at Benton stands ready to work with parents and community members in building partnerships that benefit the most important facet of our district – our children. Our Benton community provides a wonderful setting to raise a family. The Benton School District serves as a key player within that family setting by providing a well rounded quality education that focuses on family values that are so important to our community. A supportive Board of School Directors, quality administrators, devoted professional teachers and caring support staff, along with committed families that value education, make Benton a very special place.
I encourage you to visit our schools to see firsthand quality education. I know you will find our schools supportive and sensitive to the needs of our community. The support that exists throughout our district is critical to our process of challenging ourselves to improve as a school district. We recognize that our students have limitless potential and our challenge as a school district and community at large is to ensure that potential is met.
I trust that you will find our website to be helpful in locating key information and resources regarding the Benton School District. Please take time to view the individual school building pages to locate building specific information and student highlights. It is our hope through this website that you will be able to see a portion of the variety of learning initiatives offered by the district that bring excitement and relevance to learning for all students in Benton. Thank you again for all the support you provide that allows our students to achieve their potential.
