Our son has been at Bethany since preschool. He graduates 8th grade in three weeks. Bethany has been an amazing school/family. Our son has flourished academically and spiritually. He has formed relationships that will last and so have we. He will be going on to a college prep high school and he is well prepared. Thank you Bethany for your years of nurturing and academic excellence! Middle school teachers you are all amazing! Thank you for all your hard work and dedication.
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.
My daughter has been is in her second year of preschool (just turned 4) and is already reading and doing simple math. The teacher are great! I can't say enough good about this school.
Bethany is a true gem. I have three children who have recently finished their first year. They have excelled socially; making lots of new friends, as well as academically; scoring in the 90th percentile on state tests. The teachers, parents and students are welcoming and warm. I feel blessed to have found such a wonderful school. You will too.
Miss Leslie and Miss Kelly are awesome teachers. Mrs. Hill (director) runs a great preschool!! Wonderful academics, arts and sports. Our son enjoys learning and doing his homework. We may just have to keep him here through 8th grade. Class sizes are small, teachers are credentialed, rooms and materials are newer. Great parent involvement, and of course he is learning all about God, and getting a great foundation to build off of. We love Bethany!
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.
Mrs. Beckers in 1st grade is an awesome teacher. She incorporates Biblical teaching in all areas of her class. She makes learning fun and when my daughter comes home, she is full of excitement of what she's learned for the day.
5th grade teacher Ms. Darjany is the most caring, encouraging, optomisitc, and loving teacher I have ever met! She has a way with kids and she says the most profounding things that my son will never forget, and neither will I! She is the best!
Bethany is a excellent school. My children have both attended since Preschool. One is graduating from High School and one is graduating from the 8th grade at Bethany. The administration and faculty are highly qualified. Bethany School has been a blessing to our family.
An excellent school. My child has accelerated there since the first grade and continues to flourish. The programs are sufficient and the staff are great. I feel comfortable sending my child there and love the atmosphere. There are many extracurricular opportunities for sports, chess competitions, gymnastics and travel for every level. It's a blessing to have this school.
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.
