Principal's Feature

Welcome to Benson Primary School which is located in Itasca, Illinois. Currently our enrollment for the 2016-17 school year is approximately 300 students in grades early childhood through second. I am extremely proud of our school community and am honored to work with our dedicated and professional staff whose purpose is to provide a positive learning environment for all of our students.

At Benson Primary we are also proud of the involvement and support we continuously receive from the Itasca Parent Teacher Organization. Through the combined effort of the school organization and the Itasca Parent Teacher Organization (IPTO), Benson Primary has been able to offer many programs to our students. Additionally, the IPTO also sponsors many before and after school programs and opportunities in which the students and parents may participate. We are equally grateful to the D10 Education Foundation for their support and collaboration. Over the past two years Benson Primary School has received nearly $12,000.00 in grant funds for our school. Thank you D10 Education Foundation!

We at Benson Primary are proud of our community. It is one that includes not only parents and students, but also the business community and the citizenry as a whole. Through the cooperation of our community we are able to find great success when offering numerous opportunities to our students including such events as Special Friends’ Day, Nature Center Events, Field Day, Second Grade Career Day, and Read for 2017 just to name a few.

We invite you to find out more about Benson Primary School through this website. We also encourage you to correspond with or visit our school. The school office telephone number is 630-773-0554, or you are invited to reach me via email at
