Mission

At Bennett Day School, our mission is to provide a collaborative culture that nurtures children’s innate sense of inquiry and curiosity. We are committed to advancing creativity, innovation, and the development of lifelong learners and leaders!

Vision

Bennett Day School is a progressive school that provides unparalleled experiences – in our program offering, instructional approaches, and nurturing environment – that shape our community for a fulfilling, successful, and impactful life. Compelled by curiosity, immersed in complex questions about the world around them, and supported by a diverse faculty and peer population, the Bennett Day School community asks and seeks the answers to those questions that derive from creativity and innovation. Individual and collaborative learning are central to the work of our school day; students and teachers are held to the highest standards, not simply in terms of final outcomes, but in the planning and realization of their own learning. Ours is not a desk and chalkboard institution but rather a center, a laboratory, where students develop ideas and understanding, pursue passions and dreams, and hold themselves and their colleagues accountable for shared and individual work. Because school life at Bennett Day School embraces and celebrates the world outside as well as the world within, natural extensions of community awareness and service play a central role in what motivates our work. Understanding the world around them, our students see what is and what should be and tap into innovative thinking to make change a reality.
