    I have a son with special needs and 4-6th grades were challenging. The school staff from aids to the principal always kept communication open welcomed my comments and concerns and worked out a school plan that met my child's academic social and behavioral needs. The school could have easliy required my son to attend the alternative school in district but went well beyond their means to work with us. Way to go dist 122!

    Caroline Bentley is an excellent school. I have had my daughters in several of the New Lenox Schools and they have said Bentley was the best one of all. As a parent I am very satisfied with the principal and staff. They are very caring yet demanding of the students. The students do well because of the teachers. Bentley has many extracurricular activities for the students. I am so glad my daughters were able to attend Caroline Bentley!!
