    Our school is striving to be one of the top ten schools in North Carolina. Our mission is to continue to provide excellent care to our parents and students. To keep our students engaged in learning and motivated about coming to school. Last year we was not only a school of excellence but we was among the second in our district to school the highest on the EOG's and we met AYP. Our school gives not excellent customer service but we believe in involving our community and parents in our goals for the school. We have high qualified staff and resource teachers. We feed into one of the top rated high schools in Cleveland County. Our superintendent along with our board of education support and encourages our success of our students by holding us accountable of "high expectations". I think others should know that the teaching staff at Bethware along with the administration has passion for what we do. Our school can improve by continue to strive higher and harder at closing the gaps in our students math and reading goals across the board regardless of race and ethnicity. I like that we are family oriented meaning we know that everybody has to do their part in order for a child to succeed.
