At the Bennett Day School we aspire to uphold the values of:
Our school culture demands that our students, teachers, and families be ever mindful and attuned to their role in setting and reaching goals. These goals balance the personal and the collaborative as well as the intellectual and the academic. Our students and teachers pose questions and ideas that provoke and inspire deep understanding and tangible growth.
Our community engages in thoughtful dialogue and encourages understanding of manifold perspectives including, but not limited to, learning styles, physical abilities, religious beliefs, racial and ethnic backgrounds, and family structures. These dialogues are central to our school mission since we believe from diversity of thought, experience, and history come truly innovative collaborations and outcomes.
Candor is assumed in all aspects of life at Bennett Day School; awareness of and adherence to our academic and social principles of honesty, compassion, and risk-taking support the community in all endeavors, including those times when we wrestle with conflicts. We recognize that many things don’t fall along the lines of simple right and wrong and that those are often the opportunities for the richest conversations and deepest insights.
At Bennett Day School, we promote innovation and lifelong learning by presenting dynamic programming and a challenging curriculum designed to teach strategies for adapting now and throughout life. Regularly pausing to reflect on what we have learned for ourselves and from one another helps determine where we venture next.
