Benchmark School Launches Strategic Plan

Benchmark School Launches Strategic Plan

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. 

This strategic plan, called “Empower,” is a roadmap designed with a deep understanding of Benchmark School’s unique strengths and challenges. Our plan positions Benchmark School to continue to succeed as a place where students develop essential skills and competencies and charts a course to distinguish the school as an innovative learning community where students, educators, families, and members of the community are empowered partners in supporting students in expanding their interests and strengths and uncovering their hidden talents, so they can realize their aspirations and full potential.

Head of School Chris Hancock says, “A good strategic plan is an exciting plan, one that challenges a school to do more, work smarter, and go beyond imagined boundaries. Our new plan excites me, and I believe it will excite you as well. I invite all members of the Benchmark community to feel a sense of pride and ownership in this plan, and to take part in bringing it to fruition.”
