Health was taught under the guidance of lVlr. Charles
Mucha. Health class was taken two semesters during the
sophomore year. People in health learned about such things as
body functions, personal care, nutrition, alcohol, and drugs.
Classroom driver education was also offered.
High school students have varied health interests, but
surveys regarding these interests show that they also have
many problems in common. Most Benson Tech students were
concerned with having a background for adequately meeting
their personal and community health problems and were
interested in having help to solve problems.

The Benson mathematics department offered an unusually
well-rounded program of courses with something for
everybody who wished to improve his mathematics skills and
understanding. These offerings included both a full
complement of studies for technical-vocational majors as well
as the more customary program for college bound students.
State of Oregon graduation requirements include only one year
of mathematics, but in order to further achieve its educational
goals, Benson has long requested a minimum of two years for
its students with a majority taking even more. A total of twelve
full-year courses are available ranging from general
mathematics, and elementary algebra to technical math,
computer math, and an all city calculus class. Students were
urged to take as much mathematics as their interests,
aptitudes, and vocational plans dictate.
In addition to providing mathematics for everyone, Benson
has long had a significant number of outstanding
mathematicians. This has particularly been reflected in success
in regional and national competition. In the last ten years. the
Benson mathematics team has not failed even one time to
earn a national award. For six of these years, Benson won the
city of Portland mathematics championship and, these same
years, gained a first, two seconds, and two thirds, in the state
of Oregon. Because of able students, capable teachers, and
vital mathematical efforts, Benson has rightfully earned the
reputation of having one of the finest high school mathematics
