Students who learn differently need a program tailored to the way they learn best.
At Benchmark School, our exclusive approach goes beyond basic reading programs to reach the whole child.
When our graduates leave Benchmark School, they are confident and competent learners who know their learning styles intimately, and can advocate for their own success.
In much of the country, schools and camps that serve kids with learning differences are scarce. Many families have to travel substantial distances to get the help their children need, if they’re lucky enough to have a supportive school in the area at all. For others, it can mean moving one’s entire family for a summer at Benchmark.
Benchmark School is pleased to announce the appointment of Joe McPeak as Chief Financial Officer, following the service of Kathy Peters as Interim CFO during the 2021-2022 school year.
After more than a year of thoughtful input and consideration from all corners of the Benchmark community, we have created a strategic plan that will propel Benchmark into the future.
As the culminating event of our 50th Anniversary celebrations, we can't wait to welcome our beloved Benchmark community to a grand gala on May 14.
