Benton Elementary



Welcome to Benton Elementary School!  Let me introduce you to Benton Elementary. We are the newest of Fairfield’s three elementary schools, opened in 1999. Located in the countryside we serve the families of Benton and portions of Jackson and Clinton Township. We strive to be a welcoming, nurturing environment for our students. Our talented staff work together to provide a strong elementary experience for our students.
Starting in kindergarten with a solid foundation and continuing to challenge and encourage students to learn as they grow. Eventually preparing them to move on to the Junior High, ready for a new level of independence. Benton parents are an important part of who we are as a school. We welcome their support and involvement in the school-life of their children.
I am in my fourth year as principal at Benton Elementary and I continue to be grateful to work alongside this wonderful group of education professionals. This is a special school and we’d love to see if it’s the right fit for your student. 
– Carla Hochstetler, Principal
