Benton Middle School has been Designated 2014 School of Excellence
Our students have the distinction of attending a PWCS School of Excellence. This is the 3rd consecutive year Benton has earned the coveted title and the 6th time in the school's history for earning this designation. School of Excellence is the highest recognition awarded to schools by the PWCS School Board. It signifies high levels of performance on state accreditation, Annual Measurable Objectives, and in moving toward the goals of the Division’s Strategic Plan. 

Congratulations to everyone who helped to earn this important indicator of student success.
