What is your teaching or educational philosophy?

We believe each child is a unique individual whose potential has yet to be realized. To help students develop their potential, we provide an inclusive and supportive environment that is grounded in an appreciation of who each student is as a learner and individual. We tailor our instruction to students' strengths, challenges, and overall profile as we develop their confidence and competence.

Traditional programs support children in learning to read. Our Benchmark Approach goes beyond the scope of traditional programs; we teach literacy and support the whole child as a learner in every context. Our holistic Benchmark Approach—incorporating our own reading program—guides children to read, to write, and to reflect; to cultivate a love of reading; and to know themselves as learners and thinkers.

What is your mission statement?

Benchmark School is committed to helping bright students who learn differently, or have yet to reach their academic potential, develop the confidence, strategies, and knowledge to become lifelong learners, thinkers, and problem-solvers.
