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

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.

How Diverse Are Private Schools?
Decades ago private schools could have been accused of being elitist. You had to have money to attend. The student populations were fairly homogeneous. Fortunately that has changed.
