    We love this school! Teachers and staff are wonderful and I feel they really work with the students. The PTA is very involved and has great programs for parents and students. I am very impressed with this school

    This school is great as long as your child is not over weight. My granddaughter has suffered constant mental abuse from staff classmates and other parents. She has been separated from others simply because of her obesity. The worse part is the community as a whole. Theconstant abuse continues after school in our neighborhood.

    We moved to the Bethany area specifically to go to this school. The teachers and staff are excellent. They care about the children and it shows! Every child is important. The school values parent involvement and has a community feel. The PTA is very involved in raising money to better the school. The school does things that other schools in the area do not do....grade level trips with parents to Carolina Beach (K) NC mountains (1st) and Washington DC (5th). This out of classroom experience unites families and teachers and exposes students to things they could never experience in a book. This school cares about meeting testing standards but it doesn't just teach to the test! We love Bethany!

    My kids and I love this school. Actually I went to this school as a child and remember how great it was then and even greater now. the teachers and staff are wonderful. Both my kids have done well academically. The only sad thing is the principal retired this year. Awesome man he is. Very involved with the kids and just a wonderful principal. I am very confident that whoever takes his place will be just as great. our school has the best in everything... students parents teachers. sports teams you name it.
