Thank you for your inquiry about Bethany School.
Bethany School is a fully accredited elementary school, housing 400 preschool - 8th grade students.  In addition to quality teachers, small class sizes and high standards, Bethany School provides a nurturing, Christian environment for students to grow to BELIEVE, ACHIEVE, & SUCCEED.  Students learn to make real-life connections to classroom learning through classroom iPads, music instruction, arts, hands-on activities and field trips.  Bethany Students take part in daily Bible instruction as well as weekly chapel.  Extra-curricular activities include after school clubs and sports, choir and piano lessons, Meet the Masters Art program, travel weeks for 4th - 8th grades, and much more.  We also provide a full-day kindergarten program, before and after school daycare, and summer enrichment programs for grades K-5.
  We would enjoy meeting with you and sharing more about how your children could be a part of the Bethany School experience.  Please contact our school secretary at (562) 597-2814 and schedule an appointment that would be convenient for you to meet with our administrative team this week and take a tour of our campus.  She can also give you more information about tuition rates at that time.   We look forward to speaking with you soon.
