Benson Alumni & Community Member School Climate Survey

  Dear Benson Community, 

We want to know the values that are important to you and that you want to see reflected in our school's expectations of students. Our goal is to develop 3-5 values with input from students, staff, community members and families. 

The School Climate's Team aim is to understand what's important to each member of our school community. 

Please share the three (3) values you believe are most important to you in the survey bellow. It is our goal to have your voice reflected in the development of Benson's revised School-Wide Student Expectations.
