"Why I Teach"

For 50 years, our gifted teachers have been applying our proven and pioneering teaching methods to change the trajectory of children's lives. Some of their stories are below. 

By using the best research on teaching, Benchmark takes kids who were struggling in school and creates successful learners. Benchmark has perfected its instructional model over a 50-year period, and yet, continues to refine it and extend it. All struggling learners should be taught so well and so intensively.
