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.

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!

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.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.

Oops! We currently do not have any student information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.
