The Bentworth School District is making every effort to provide quality educational opportunities to the residents and students in the District. These opportunities serve the academic, athletic, cultural, and social needs of our community. As you view our website, we believe you will see the positive impact of our educational programs.
As with most school districts, due to things beyond our control, Bentworth has had to adjust many standard daily operations over the past couple of years to meet State mandates as well as student needs. These changes have allowed us the opportunity to examine what we are doing and why we do it. We believe we have taken a measured approach to the elimination and the addition of needed items that will allow us to enhance the overall education of our students. To accommodate the needs of our employees, we will continue to provide structured, site based professional development based on our student and staff needs.
Our previous strategic plan focused upon expanding student assessment activities, promoting active engagement of students in learning activities by all teachers through Differentiated Instruction, and identifying and implementing organizational frameworks that will support and enhance the school culture as the school district draws attention to the relationships between the academic, emotional, and social focus of the entire educational program. The Comprehensive Plan for the next three years is currently under development. Elements of assessment, instruction and school culture will continue to be the focus for the foreseeable future.
Overall, the Bentworth School District continues to address the academic standards set forth by the Pennsylvania Department of Education. We are proud of the overall performance of our students as our high school cumulative SPP score ranked the district third out of twenty five schools in Intermediate Unit #1 for the 2022-2023 school year. The teaching staff continues to strive for excellence in their efforts to provide dynamic instruction that excites and engages our students. Great things are happening at Bentworth!
