About Benson West Elementary

  • The mission of Benson West is to provide educational opportunities which enable all students to achieve their fullest potential.

    Vision: Benson West will be a learning environment where staff, students, and parents collaborate to foster high student achievement, a lifelong appreciation of learning and respect for others in an atmosphere where diversity is valued.

    Benson West Elementary School is located at 6652 Maple Street heart of the historic Benson neighborhood in Omaha. Almost 500 students are served in kindergarten through fifth grade. One of our greatest strengths is our diverse population. Our students represent many different cultures and there are 13 different languages spoken. 

    Staff members and parents collaborate to prepare all Benson West students for success in school and beyond. Our amazing teachers are dedicated to delivering a rigorous curriculum that ensures each student reaches his or her potential. 

    Our strong PTA supports our students and staff in a variety of ways. They provide field trip opportunities for every grade level, host family nights and consistently find ways to show our staff members how much they are appreciated.
