The Benjamin School is an independent, non-affiliated day school for pre-kindergarten to 12th grade students in Palm Beach County. The School resides on two campuses; the 14 acre Lower and Middle School campus in North Palm Beach and the 50 acre Upper School campus in Palm Beach Gardens. Approximately 144 teachers and associates are responsible for about 1135 students. The Lower School currently serves 452 students in grades Pre-K 3 through 5; the Middle School enrolls 230 in grades 6-8; and the Upper School has 453 students in grades 9-12. The School’s rigorous and varied program prepares its students for acceptance to 4-year colleges.
The Benjamin School’s core is academics, with a balanced emphasis on athletics and the arts. The Lower School challenges students with an academic program that includes, among other strong elements, highly developed research-based instruction in language arts and mathematics and a strong Pre-K 3 to 5th grade world language program. In the Middle School students are challenged with a wide variety of college preparatory courses including advanced world language instruction, Algebra I and Geometry and advanced science programs. At the Upper School campus, the faculty offers courses on three levels: regular, honors, and AP.
The School administers 449 or more AP examinations to all of the students enrolled in its 24 AP courses. In May, 2015 eighty-two percent of those tests received qualifying scores of at least a 3, and 87 percent of the students taking the tests earned at least one 3 or better. Seventy-four percent of the seniors in the class of 2015 took one or more AP courses. The Upper School also has more than 50 semester electives. Students can study Spanish, French and Mandarin Chinese to satisfy their language requirement.
In all three divisions, students have many opportunities to be involved in dance, instrumental (including strings) and vocal music, drama and the visual arts. Students in all three divisions also have a physical education program, and those in the Middle and Upper Schools must participate in one or more team sports.
The School makes extensive use of technology in its programs. Almost all classrooms have an interactive whiteboard (Smartboard or Epson), and all computers on both campuses have internet access via a school-wide Wireless access. Students in grades 4 and 5 bring iPads to school each day. The Middle School has a BYOD program, and in the Upper School all students own and use laptops or iPads. The School also provides specialized computers for video editing, digital graphics, desktop publishing and the language lab.
The Benjamin School strives to attract and support a diverse and talented student body, faculty, and staff. Applicants for admission or employment will not be denied based on race, creed, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, or disability. EOE/DFWP
