    "The BEST decision that my husband and I have ever made!...We sent both of our sons to Benchmark at a very young age. Now both of them in the top colleges in the world! Benchmark taught them learning strategies that put them on the road to success and instilled a love of learning, We thank Benchmark everyday (so do our sons). Our son agree it was the best school ever and it prepared them for the outstanding colleges that they attend today! Benchmark puts children who are lagging in reading and writing way above their peers who attend other schools! Everyone should have the opportunity to learn this way. If your child is struggling to read and write...go directly to Benchmark..."do not pass go...." as they say in the game Monopoly! THANK YOU BENCHMARK!"

    "Benchmark is the best decision we have ever made for our child. We began sending our daughter to the Benchmark Summer Camp 3 years ago. Having seen the confidence Benchmark was able to give our daughter in only 5 weeks, we felt Benchmark was the right place for her social, emotional, and academic growth all year long. Only in her second year, our daughter has already gained confidence, improved her reading and math skills, and increased her ability to approach problems strategically and with a positive attitude. Each teacher at Benchmark has taken the time to understand my child and meet her needs in a supportive yet challenging academic environment. The exceptionally dedicated staff continues to nurture my child as she continues to grow. Benchmark has allowed my child to cultivate relationships in the classroom as well as in after school activities like Guided Study, Art Club, Girl's Club, and the Robotics Clubs. We believe that every child could benefit from a Benchmark education."

    "For all the parents that are contemplating on whether or not to send your child to Let me tell you my story. I'd cried about the decision of having to take my son from his present school and all his friends. But I knew he was not going to make in his present school. Benchmark laid a solid foundation for his understanding on how he learns. Benchmark build his confidence & he became a true advocate for himself. My son attended Benchmark from 2 - 8 grade. He is now a sophomore at SLA and a straight A student. He takes pride in his studies and himself. So if you have the opportunity to get in Benchmark it really pays off and the end."

    "Our son entered Benchmark as fifth grade student reading at a first grade level. He was battered, frustrated and defeated by everything in his life. During his four years at the school, his teachers were amazing with him, displaying the patience he needed but being honest with him about what was getting in the way of his success. After Benchmark, he went on to high school and college. We knew he understood himself when we overheard him talking with Division 1 lacrosse coaches about learning support programs at their schools and if not available, he expressed gratitude for the interest and said good-bye. He is now a well-respected educator in Maryland, having earned certifications in elementary and special education, and administration. None of this would have been possible without Benchmark. He learned there who he was as a student, how to advocate for himself, and what strategies he needed to achieve success. He is paying it forward today, instilling a sense of self-advocacy and self-knowledge in the students he now teaches. We believe that he would never have achieved this success without having the experience of Benchmark School."

    "I can not say enough wonderful things about Benchmark and how it transformed my son, who has dyslexia, into a confident learner who knows what he needs to succeed in school and in life. He entered as a 4th grader from a fabulous prep school, but could barely read or string together sentences to write a paragraph. At Benchmark he worked hard (yes, there were tears) but so did everyone else. The lower school and middle school teachers were amazing and wanted him to succeed. His math instruction was superb. He mainstreamed into a different prep school in the 8th grade and I can brag that he just got accepted to every college he applied to! In high school he amazed himself by earning a B+ in English literature - a huge deal in our house!! What I loved about Benchmark was not only his experience but mine as a mom. All of the parents were there to give their kids the best shot at life. It's a 'whole family' experience and I have remained friends with my "Benchmark family" 5 years later."
