  • Bethlehem Children's School is an independent K-8 school established in 1995 to provide a positive learning experience for children.
  • In our program, children learn cooperatively, working together and helping each other, rather than competing against each other.
  • The pace of learning is determined by each child's own developmental readiness, rather than a standardized timetable determined by age.
  • The motivation for learning is the child's innate curiosity, rather than the external influences of examinations and grades.
  • The school provides a low student to teacher ratio, where teachers can create an environment that draws out natural curiosity and fosters the development of a genuine, life-long interest in learning.
  • We strive to implement our mission and to instill a life-long love of learning through curiosity, independence and cooperation, flexibility, critical thinking, individualized instruction, emotional growth, emotional security, and social responsibility.
