    Bethany Christian School is wonderful. Not only does it offer outstanding academics but it offers a very warm and nurturing environment for my kids. The teachers are phenomenal and they are totally invested in their students. I could not recommend Bethany higher!

    Bethany Christian is an wonderful school! My children have been attending BCS for over 4 years and they have been extremely happy there. They have had great teachers and have done well academically socially and spiritually. I feel that the teachers and administration really care about the students as individuals. The school atmosphere encourages close relationships and parent involvement. We will be there for a long time!

    Dreadful! This is the worst run school we have experienced and parents should be circumspect before making the mistake of entrusting their children's guidance to such flawed leadership. Our son was horribly bullied and the completely unqualified "leadership" ignored the issue. I had an audience and unfulfilled promises were made furthermore the education was disgraceful - so much for Christian values! This management's only motivation is money so perhaps they should be renamed Bethany Capital School!

    The Teachers are wonderful!!! If your child needs a loving family school this is for you. I'm so blessed we have had them for the last 3 years. I can't say enough about what a wonderful group of Teachers and Parents. A+++++++++++++++++++

    My child attended 7th and 8th grade. The small class sizes 8-10 kids is a huge advantage. Students are given lots of individual attention and personal help in any weak areas. The close community of teachers and parents raises the childs achievments as many eyes are watching. There is a strong influence of Christianity and family in the atmosphere. My child and her classmates easily passed tests for acceptance in the hardest local private schools telling me the curriculum is top notch. The only negative comment is that because of small class sizes team sport and athletics is loosely organized and not instructional.

    A great choice for small solid christian environment with solid academics. My daughter went from K thru 5th and my son is in 2nd grade there. Discipline and teaching is handled with individual caring specific to the child and the situation. My kids get a bible based education along with music art computer spanish and more. My son takes optional theater class after school and its a great outlet for his personality. Great special events contribute to the general childhoold experience (snow day grandparents day annual Thanksgiving play etc.). Teachers are loving and seek to minister to the whole family.

    My child has been here since Pre-K and will stay here until the 8th grade. This is a nurturing school with caring staff and wonderful teachers. Small classes make learning easier and each child gets more indivialized attention. The fact that the bible is taught at Pre-K my child is a loving caring child to all. Thank you Bethany Christian!

    The preschool program is outstanding - very nurturing and loving but offering spanish lots of hands on art projects as well as preparation for kindegarten. The school is very heavily Christian and the upper grade classes are extremely small - almost half the schools enrollment is in the preschool level.
