    "I liked many things about Benton Cons. High School for many different reasons. This high school has many different choices for after school activities and clubs. They also have a work study program where you can job shadow different career paths and decide what you want to go into. This school also has a very good fine arts program, they have concert band and marching band, they also have advanced and regular choir. They also have many different arts to chose from. Benton Cons. High School has many different options and is a very good school."

    "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."
