Uniform Policy
It will not be necessary to have the Manchester Public Schools Logo on the students' polo shirt. Parents/guardians may purchase polo shirts without the logos at their choice of store. The color options of the shirt should remain according to the policy: burgundy, royal blue, grey or black. If you wish to purchase a polo or fleece with the Manchester Public Schools logo, the vendor for Bennet and Illing is Novel Tees, located at 81 Tolland Turnpike, Manchester (860-643-6008), Please note that pants, shorts, skirts can be purchased at any local vendor, or at Novel Tees, but must be school approved colors: black, tan, navy blue or khaki. NO jeans will be allowed.

At Bennet Academy we believe that...

All students can and must learn at relatively high levels of achievement. It is our job to create an environment in our classrooms that results in this high level of performance. We are confident that with our support and help, students can master challenging academic material, and we expect them to do so. We are prepared to work collaboratively with colleagues, students and parents to achieve this growth.
