School Reviews

I attended Bethany as a student. Plus, I worked there in my teen years as a daycare worker, and then a few years later as a teacher and chaplain. I highly recommend this school. When I went to high school after attending Bethany, I was more than prepared educationally for what high school had to offer. Now, as the youth pastor at the church, when the students go into high school from Bethany I still hear the same comment. I recommend this school not only for the academics, but also for the emphasis towards education based on Christian principles and emphasis on spiritual growth.

I have 3 kids here, and God has used this school to bless each of them immensely! Talented teachers, and a family-like atmosphere for your child.

My girls have been incredibly served by the teachers at this school. Challenging academics, tailored to each child''s needs, with great extra-curricular activities and small class sizes. A great school
