Philosophy of Education

Benton High School's Philosophy of Education

The faculty and administration of Benton High School recognize the individuality of each student and the right of that student to receive and opportunity in education to develop to his/her fullest potential. Through dedication, hard work and effective planning, a flexible academic and extracurricular program can be offered that will allow each student opportunities to experience success. Through positive discipline, we believe an atmosphere can be created in the school to enable academic, social and physical development. We further believe that through cooperative interaction of the administration, faculty, students, parents, and community, each student can achieve his/her academic goals, develop a love for learning, respect for self and others, and an enthusiasm for life that will help to ensure his/her success and happiness.
