Working with our staff, families can develop a mix of academic classes, athletic activity, and arts programming that engages the whole child.
Endless Student Opportunities: Benson Public Schools boasts over 34 extracurricular activities, 68 elective classes, and the most robust industrial technology and career prep courses in the area.
