    I think it's great that people have had a great experience but as of right now this is not the same school. Teacher's are more concerned with fun than teaching and the only fact that matters is out of the entire school only 19 kids passed kindergarten.... Pathetic and beyond unacceptable and I look forward to moving.

    Unfortunately our family moved around quite a bit during my daughter and son's early years. But they were never happier than when they attended Bennett Elementary School. Every one of their teachers were great; they were kind and always went "above and beyond" for their students. My son has special needs and was lucky to have an aide Ms. Fulton by his side throughout his years there. She was patient and kind yet stern and diligent when need be. Even my son's bus driver Ms. Belinda and the school custodian seemed to brighten the school day. Unfortunately because of my son's needs my daughter did not get as much help with her schoolwork etc. from me as she should have. But her teachers cared enough to sometimes give her that individual attention she needed. I believe both my children were able to achieve their best at Bennett.

    My children have attended Bennett Elem for the last seven years combined and I am very happy with the education they have received. The teachers are great and my children were given the best first grade experience with Mrs. Lisa Campbell. She is a positve role model and caring teacher.

    My son has been going to the pre k that bennett has for two years and I can not find one bad thing to say. My son has grown so much The greatest thing to me was his teacher Mis sims she made my son feel like he was the greatest he has come out of his shell thanks to her when he found out that she would not be his teacher this year he cried and said 'mommy my mis Sims will miss me' I thought that was great thank you mis Sims and Mis judy for everything

    This is a good small school fairly small class size. The bad side is that there are not many extracurricular activities

    After reviewing and visiting ALL Elementary schools in the Bullhead City area I came very close to changing my mind to relocate to the area. Last minute I was advised to check out Bennett Elementary in Laughlin. I have and am very pleased with the curriculum scores class size and staff within the school. I look forward and am very comfortable with my move to Nevada. Thank You Bennett Elementary for caring...in my search it is obvious you do. BeeBee Briggs

    My granddaughter attended Bennett Elementary School last year. She had Lisa Campbell for her teacher. I have never met a more caring teacher. In only wish my granddaughter could have her again. Under her teaching my granddaughter was awarded the Presidents Award for Academic Excellence. I understand that she will have another good teacher in second grade. Our family has been very very happy with Bennett Elementary School and its staff.
