    "The extracurricular activities are fairly good, and the sports teams are some of the best in the state, but the school is woefully underfunded academically."

    "My high school experience has definitely not been the best. We have a bully problem and it seems no one wants to take recognition for it considering when you tell the teachers you get answers such as "You guys are just too soft you have no idea what bullying is. Now you could look at someone and get told on back when I was a kid bullying was phyical." Another reason I did not have good experiences is the teaching methods. When asking for help it feels more like pulling teeth. The answers we get then are "Read the directions" (which we have), "ask a partner someone has to know" (which we usually have), or "I don't know how to teach it to you any differently for you to understand it.""

    "If I had to choose one aspiring characteristic of BCHS, I would choose the amount of school spirit and enthusiasm it contains within its walls. Everybody is supportive of each other, and they dedicate time and effort into the programs offered through the school. The sponsors for all of the clubs put aside their personal lives and put in time for the kids in the clubs at school. If I could change one thing, it would be the cliques and societal scale when it comes to the students. Students judge one another based off of money, or the different abilities they obtain."

    "BCHS is a wonderful place located in the small town southern Illinois. I like multiple things about BCHS. The education, teachers, and the lovely friends you make throughout your high school career. They will provide you with the best education possible. The teachers will help you get through the last and help you with whatever it is you're struggling with. Now friends come and go, but havin three towns combined into one school is quite amazing! Being from a small town you know everyone and making new friends is very easy. No matter if they are from Benton, Ewing, or Akin. I would definitely like BCHS to change their advance placement program. You shouldn't be placed in a class based on how high or low your placement score is. It should really be based on how well you do in school."

    "Benton High School has not only pushed me as a a student, but also as a person. Despite being in a poor town in Southern Illinois, BCHS makes the most from what we have. The teachers enjoy teaching their kids, the coaches enjoy coaching, and the kids (for the most part) enjoy going to school. There are nurmerous clubs and activities that students can become involved in. Fine arts is just as important as sports at BCHS. Our cuidance counselors have been wonderfull in preparing us for college. I would want my kids to come to BCHS!"
