    Our daughter has been attending Bethany since preschool she is now in kindergarten. The teachers are loving caring patient and really fantastic at teaching! From what I can tell compared to our friends with kids in the same grades public schools cover the same topics as Bethany except of course Jesus but they do not cover the standard topics as thoroughly. Therefore providing the Bethany school students with an edge over other children and still fitting in an extra course The Bible. It's definitely worth the tuition.

    We are very satisfied with the quality of education and all the "extras" that my wife and I had when we were in private school. A wonderful credentialed staff a first-rate PE a real computer lab a library with a librarian fantastic electives- music choir chess science foreign language and top-drawer Bible-rooted instruction. What a blessing for Long Beach.

    I had children in preschool and kindergarten last year and was quite happy with the experiences they both had. Both my boys loved their teachers and I am happy with the curriculum that was taught and the level and speed at which it was covered with the kids. No school is perfect but Bethany certainly makes a strong effort to make sure the kids receive your money's worth. Any issues I expressed concern for were addressed immediately. I have enrolled my kids for the 2009-2010 year and figure we'll all be just as happy.

    My children attended Bethany Pre-school. I would highly recommend this school to anybody looking for a pre-school. My children were so prepared for kindergarten. While we would have loved to have continued educating our children at Bethany it just was not feasible for our family. I was very sad to take them out of this loving and Christian environment.

    We switched from the state schools to Bethany last year. We can not say enough positive things about our experience. The smaller classroom size the extracurricular activities parent involvement and endless opportunities in music and art make it a great choice. In addition we have a qualified P.E. Teacher! Parent involvment is not only fantastic the positive energy you feel from the staff and volunteers on a daily basis is amazing! We are so happy with our choice.
