After reading not so good reviews of the school online, we reluctantly put our daughter in Bennion elementary after the school in which we had initially enrolled her did not work out. Let me tell you, that was the best thing that could have happened to us! Our daughter has made many friends from many different backgrounds and loves going to school every day. The teachers have taken great strides to keep her challenged, even if that means putting her in older grades for particular subjects. My husband and I couldn't be happier with this school. Although we moved, we feel the longer commute is worth it.
My child goes to M. Lynn Bennion and she said she loves the teachers and she has a lot of fun when she goes to school. I strongly recommend this school .
