For Prospective Parents

Our son was having difficulties returning to 7th grade post Covid.  His home district was not equipped to provide necessary staff and tools to support education that he needs. After sending him home for the last 6 weeks of the school year with no support for his educational needs, and being told he should be on medication before returning,  we decided to take control of his educational future and remove him from District. At that point we started looking for schools in an environment that would work with him not punish him by suspension and not providing a teacher for his needs. After much back and forth with the district which wanted him to return for 8th Grade we were able to press the district to provide us and our son with Options. 

Our initial interview meeting at Benway we met with staff and was given a tour.  We had a good feeling about it and our son was able to spend a day at Benway. The small class size and less Clinical environment was something that we liked. We visited and evaluated 5 schools and the decision that was reached was to go with Benway.

Following his transition to Benway he had a good first marking period then he fell back during the second marking period due to a number of issues. We discussed with the staff and counselors a temporary leave for evaluation, and all agreed. The results were excellent. At mid-year we had our son assessed outside of school by medical personnel, and he was removed from medication and excelled moving forward at Benway.  Now he is ready to return to high school midway and that was our plan from the beginning.

The teachers and staff worked with us and our son to produce a transition plan that we felt was best for him to perform freshman year.  He has grown significantly since attending Benway and loves the field trips and food incentives for his great performance behavior and academic achievement and now has confidence and academic goals that he has outlined for himself.

We are so grateful and pleased with his teachers and staff for the open communication that we have with them, and they all truly care very much for him. They do a great job for the kids, and we definitely made the right decision for our son to attend Benway.  We are so proud of him!

Thank you Benway!
