Raymond Benson Primary School houses approximately 300 children in grades preschool-early childhood, kindergarten, first and second. It is located in a quiet, residential neighborhood next to Washington Park. The building includes classrooms for art, music, computers and library as well as a multi-purpose room that is used as both our gymnasium and our lunchroom.

The curriculum is aligned to the Illinois State Standards as well as the Common Core Learning Standards. We understand and value the importance of building strong foundations in the areas of language arts, math, science, social studies, health, art, music, physical education and digital citizenship/technology.

Classrooms are equipped with interactive white boards. Students have access to desktops, laptops and i-Pads and/or tablets throughout the instructional day. The safe use of technology is taught to students through the implementation of a digital citizenship curriculum.

Benson Primary School also understands the importance of fostering the whole child. We are dedicated to supporting the social-emotional well-being of the child as well as all areas of academics and fine arts.
