The study of Mandarin Chinese, French and Spanish commences in Benjamin’s PK3 classroom and continues through Middle and Upper School, culminating with Advanced Placement offerings in all three languages. Benjamin educates students beyond the basics of language and culture so that they can become globally competent young men and women.
Our teachers talk about things they’ve read and seen and the places they’ve traveled. Benjamin teachers are curious—they’re citizens of the world who bring their experiences to the schoolhouse to benefit our students.—Robert Goldberg
Head of School
Learning at Benjamin is an active verb. Teachers challenge students to test the status quo, make connections across disciplines and extend the horizons of knowledge. From science to social studies, literature to mathematics, music to art, The Benjamin School inspires excellence and innovation—both of ourselves and our students.
At Benjamin, we live our 10 character traits. As students get older, those traits become ways of
life—responsibility, honesty, morality. I expect my students to treat each other with respect.—Alex Clarke, Teacher, Grade 5
At Benjamin, we recognize the benefits of our extraordinary learning environment. We encourage students to use these advantages to address unmet needs in our community through service. Every student participates: from holiday toy and food drives, to hosting the Best Buddies Friendship Walk, to taking part in beach cleanups.
Students in History of Florida and the Caribbean travel to the Grenadines with Mr. Anderson. They go to the island, work with students there—whose lives are so different from theirs—and come back changed. —Kendall Didsbury
