A Pace For All At Benchmark Elementary

At Benchmark Elementary School, we are raising the standard of K-6 education. That means we offer academically excellent Core Knowledge curriculum, Singapore Math, hands on science, and phonics-based instruction. But it also means we are reaching all learners with instruction that is individually structured to optimize each child’s potential. At Benchmark, we enable our students to learn at a pace that fits their skills and ensures they succeed. 

An Innovative Classroom Model

Our innovative teaching model features two full-time professional teachers in every classroom. There are so many benefits to this model, including a low 16:1 student-to-teacher ratio, which is proven to result in higher student achievement. 


Two teachers lead to more differentiated instruction and 1:1 time with each student. It also enables Benchmark teachers to keep a close eye on student progress. Our teachers develop close connections with caregivers and families, partnering with them for student success. 

Opportunities for Motivated Learners

At Benchmark we integrate small groups into every classroom. Small groups enable us to challenge motivated learners, while providing the necessary pace for those who need it. In addition to small groups, we offer pull-outs for higher level instruction in creative writing and competitive math.  

Support to Succeed

Our two-teacher model enables us to conduct ongoing assessment of student learning, so our teachers can quickly intervene with extra support for students who need it. This can include pull-out support, after-school tutoring, and other interventions. We work with each student to ensure their academic success. 

Many Ways to Engage

We pride ourselves on our ability to offer stimulating, hands-on teaching that engages students in a variety of ways. At Benchmark we understand that making mistakes is integral to learning, which is why we encourage critical questioning and experimental problem-solving for all ages. 


We are known for our Science Lab, where students can learn to feed and care for 80+ animals. Our Makerspace is where Benchmark students solve real-world problems by inventing and creating. And our art and music programs ignite interests in all ages of learners through weekly lessons and performance opportunities. 


Benchmark School serves students with top-notch education at a pace that enables all students to thrive. Are you interested in learning more about how Benchmark can be a fit for your child? Contact us and enroll today for Preschool and Grades K-6.
