    The preschool lacks professionalism and has archaic practices. They do not know child development. They do not practice wag they preach about Christian values. Do not send your kid to this school.

    Provides great foundation for both spiritual and academic excellence. Encourages family participation in its activities.

    I love Bethany Christian School. It's like a family at my school. Everyone knows eachother watches out for eachother and truly cares about one another. The teachers are wonderful! I have had such great teachers who want you to succeed and make sure if they have to stay afterschool to help thats exactly what they will do. They have been supportive loving and encouraging. I have been at Bethany for four years now and though I look forward to graduation I will always have wonderful memories of the school.

    My children have been going here for a while now and I must say that it has been a wonderful experience. We have amazing middle school teachers. One of which who just won a science teacher of the year award. The children are challenged but the teachers are there making sure that the kids are not pushed to a point where they cannot not handle their work. If you need help they are there for you after school or they will make time during their lunch period. its a small school with only 16 to 17 kids per class which is priceless.

    My son has just completed middle school at Bethany and had an excellent experience. Kudos to the great middle school teachers and their creativity and involvement with the kids and their learning.

    Our son just started PK here less than a year ago so I dont have full details on the program but from what I've observed the teacher Mrs. Martin is excellent and very caring. There seems to be a lot of arts and crafts in the program. My son has also expanded his vocabulary while attending.

    This is an excellent school nestled in an upper class neighborhood by the mountains. It has a vibrant good connection with the home church. It has adequate parental involvment and many extracurricular activities including band.
