    "It's more about the staff and students then the actual classes them selves you walk in as a stranger your freshman year and you walk out as a member of not only the alumni but the family at Benson I wouldn't have chosen any other school and I have no regrets when it came to my educational choices"

    "I had a great experience all 4 years at Benson High school. I was able to try new sports and join clubs such as African American history club poetry club , volleyball, basketball and track. I have earned some medals and certificates from getting involved. In was able to learn about different ethnicities and learn what they eat there traits and what language they speak which I thought was pretty cool. Overall I feel like benson has prepared me for college by helping me succeed and making sure I was on top of my school work and taking advantage of that extra help that the teachers and other facility members provided for me."

    "My name is Ka Lu Moo and I from Benson magnet high school. On September, it still the first semester of 2016 school year when I move to Benson. On my first day of school, it was amazing to see how big this school compare to my last. I see a lot of different diversity and background which makes me feel like I fit into this school. Meanwhile, I start to fit in with other more and it helps experience how different diversity of peoples live in many ways to attend this school. I love being with people who are from different country because it made me feel like home. For the better, I like to see the motivation in education for diversity to developed their skill and dedication to be successful in life."

    "Teachers are awesome when it comes to creating a bond with the students! Most of my classes are honers and AP courses and I have come to realize that those teachers show more interest in the students than teachers who teach a regular class. Most of my teachers really show that they care about my education and safety in the school and it is good to know that there are adults other than our parents who care about us. I do not do many activities in the school because most of the time it is after school and I have to be back home so I can care for my siblings, so maybe some activities during school would be nice. Teachers always say to be involved in the school as much as you can but honestly I don't really know what you can do other than sports, I am not a big fan of sports and it takes up a lot of my time when I have to work. I strongly advise administrators or at least counselors to show students that there is more than just a sport to be involved in."

    "Benson is a great school to go to for education, they have a lot of teacher that will help you when you need it. They treat you like adults at Benson, instead of treating you like a little kid. All the staff at Benson High School are very funny and kind. They have a lot of clubs that you can join, they even have new clubs that no one has heard of. You can also learn a different language from one of the foreign students at Benson. It is not the best school for sports, but its easier to get more active at Benson because it easier to make a team and learn new things. All the coaches are also very friendly but also strict but only when its time to practice."
