Education

The town is home to a public school, Bennett Community School, whose district includes the town of Bennett and surrounding rural areas as well as the neighboring town of New Liberty, Iowa. The school had been K-12, but beginning with the 2005–2006 school year, the junior and senior high school (grades 7-12) entered into a whole grade sharing agreement with a nearby school in Durant, primarily due to declining enrollment and budget shortfalls. The elementary school continues to operate as before.
