Saint Benedict overall is an amazing school. There's great academics and there are some really amazing teachers. Our pep rallies are some of the most memorable moments throughout my four years. There are also many different sports programs, including: football, soccer, basketball, baseball, lacrosse, bowling, trap shooting, and tennis. We may not be the best at the main sports but we do have one of the best bowling teams in Tennessee. Overall SBA is a great school. Everyone is nice and accepting and a majority of the students go on to a 4-year college.

This year a school nurse was a great addition! She is in the health room almost all day, Monday through Friday. Students can go to her when needed, for any needs. Our security guard is around whenever there are people at the school, providing me with a great sense of safety, and all exterior doors lock after the tardy bell and after about 3:15 in the afternoon.

St. Benedict is a good school that provides a solid education. However, I have found that the honors classes are up to par if not a little over but the standard classes are not quite as rigorous as they should be. The price is too high for the courses offered. Note that tuition does not include many other costs such as uniforms, computers and books. I spent $300-$500 per year on books. Many of the books were never even opened by my child. For the most part, I had great experiences with the faculty and staff. Like any school, not every teacher is strong or engaged. Regardless, my child received a good education ~ just not the education I think she should have had for the price.
