Welcome From The Head of School

Mr. Faus' Blog


Dear Members of the Benjamin community,

As the last vestiges of summer quickly fade, I’m eagerly anticipating the ringing sound of tomorrow morning’s bell to signal the Opening Day of the 2023-2024 school year. We are poised to have another phenomenal year, and our Buccaneer community spirit is as strong and unifying as ever.  

As a school, we remain committed to a traditional curriculum that includes everything from diagramming sentences, to learning cursive, and reciting the poetry of literary heavyweights. While our community is rooted in tradition and the tenets of founders Mr. and Mrs. Benjamin, we remain forward-footed as we blend a future-oriented mindset into our classroom learning, including a revitalized Middle School STEM curriculum and hands-on learning opportunities inside and outside the classroom. In all three divisions, conversations about current educational philosophies and the rise of AI are taking center stage as we, as educators, continue our own lifelong pursuits of learning and understanding. 

Here’s to an unparalleled year of continued academic growth, athletic opportunities, and artistic expression. 

Go Benjamin, Then Go Anywhere!

In Community,
David C. Faus
