Points of distinction: Celebrating 44 years of helping bright children ages 6 to 14 who have not met with success in traditional school environments become self-advocates who understand their strength and challenges, are persistent and resilient, confident in their abilities, and have an expectation of success. Our gifted faculty uses the best current research and practices to create a profile that guides them in providing the most appropriate instruction for each student. Through an ongoing, ever evolving continuum of communication and care, teachers mentor students and work with their parents to develop the whole child.Benchmark School changes the trajectory of students' lives.

Additional Information: Benchmark believes that each student is a unique individual whose potential has not been realized and that he or she is entitled to a supportive learning environment where there is respect for different motivational needs, rates of learning, and competencies.  The program is designed to build on students' strengths and help address their challenges. Benchmark students receive instruction in the strategies, skills and concepts that enhance their ability to learn and perform successfully. Along with a focus on high academic achievement, students develop the self-efficacy, confidence, social skills, and motivation for learning that enhance their ability to perform and learn throughout their school careers and in life.
