Welcome to Benton Community Schools

The Benton Community School District provides outstanding opportunities for over 1400 students. From a caring, committed professional staff of teachers and administrators to excellent and safe learning facilities, from the fine arts to athletics, Benton Community provides an environment where children feel they belong.

Benton Community is a place to enjoy! It’s a place that lets you get involved in things that really matter – the education of our children, the development of the community, and the quality of life. Perhaps the best way to find out about Benton Community is to talk to the people who live here. The reasons that brought them here and the reasons they stay show why Benton Community is a “place to belong”.
