“My experience at Benchmark made a huge difference in my life because of how they pushed me in all levels of academics, in time management and self-advocacy. They taught me how to work through difficult problems on my own. I would not be the person that I am today if it were not for the wonderful and dedicated teachers at Benchmark School.”
"Benchmark gave me a rare opportunity to learn how I learned. I was given tools to learn how to read with my type of mind that I still carry with me today. My teachers encouraged me to take risks, ask questions, and work with my peers. In this environment, I was able to thrive and feel a sense of community that I had never felt before. My learning disability, which I initially labeled as a rejection, became my biggest strength. Benchmark gave me an advantage with learning. It also taught me to surround myself with positive people who want to see me succeed and push me to be my best every day."
