    My daughter has been attending Bethune for 4 years. The staff has always been extremely helpful. I appreciate the dedication of the principal and the staff as they continue to develop our most valuable resource.... the future leaders in our children.

    We love this school. My son and I have been so warmly welcomed. The principal and the staff have been great. My son hated school each day last year at his previous school. This year he loves school and looks forward to going daily.

    My child loves the atmosphere that Bethune Elementary provides a great atmosphere for learning. She loves how the teachers interact with them as well as with the parents. The Bethune Family is great! We as a family enjoy the after school program that is offered through the local YMCA. The Outlaw family
