Handles bullying effectively: Strongly agree


- a
The theme of bullying is addressed in different ways on a monthly basis and that approach has so far been a very effective preemptive tool in preventing problems with bullying.

Supports LD students: Strongly agree


- a
The students that have learning difficulties are very well represented by staff, and appear to do well socially as well.


Effective school leaders: Agree


- a
I would like to see more strong male leadership at the school, but the women on staff are very effective.

Develops character: Strongly agree


- a
By the time the kids hit 8th grade, they are willing to mentor the younger children with no hesitation, and they look out for the best interest underclassmen. They take on those roles willingly, and that is a testament to the family atmosphere that is nurtured at the school.

Teacher effectiveness: Strongly agree


- a
The teachers are mostly very tenured, and have seen it all -- thus, they have solutions for just about every scenario.


Amount of homework: Agree


- a
My only concern with homework is that over the years parents have complained that the kids get too much homework, and thus the amount given seems to have been scaled back a little. I don't think that adequately prepares kids for High School, College, or Life. The school still gives a fair amount of homework, but I would like to see more.



- a
The delicate balance of spirituality and education can easily be done to the extreme on either side. Bethany manages to build up the students in both areas and prepares them for whatever challenges present themselves after their time with the Bethany family. I highly recommend this school to anyone looking for a rock solid foundation for their child.



- a
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.



- a
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.
