Welcome to Benchmark

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.

Lower School

In the Lower School (grades 1-5), students begin to develop an understanding of who they are as learners while building a foundation of tools, strategies, and knowledge.

Middle School

Benchmark's Middle School (Grades 6-8) helps students grow as self-advocates who regulate their learning by knowing what they do well, what they need help to do, and where to get help.
