Bethune Junior High School is one of the best schools around this area. By far i would have it give it a 4 out of 5 personally but a 5 out of 5 overall because of its excellent academics. The school has given the students the tools to bright in their education and has given them strength and a head start onto the road to college bot high school, but college. The school is great, the teachers are very polite and have strict rules, and administrators as well as staff are very friendly. i definitely recommend this school! I'm class of 2009.

I still go to this school. I'm an 6th grader and lots of students are being unappropriated. The teachers are being very good to them and teacher very good but when the students don't behave everyone gets mad and the teacher has to stop teacher, that wastes the hard working students time. Please Improve!

I'm an eigth grade magnet student at Bethune, and I give this school a three out of five because my experience in the Magnet has been great, but I think the other kids could be a bit better behaved. The teachers that I've had, have, and know about, are hard working and involved in helping the kids out a lot. A person just needs positive support and dedication to excel at Bethune.

Some teachers are dedicated and hard-working, but there have been lots of changes in administration that negatively effect this school. Also, the school day is too long in my opinion. Starting time at 7:30 and over after 3:00. Too long. Time would be much better utilized if things like homeroom and nutrition were cut out and the left over time gone to lengthen the lunch period. There used to be just one lunch period for 30 minutes and that was too short to accomodate the huge number of students in attendance. Extracurricular course are not used wisely. Students are just 'dumped' into classes like Yearbook and Drama whether they want to be there or not, and usually it's the students with behavior problems who are enrolled in those classes. Administrators are not very supportive of teachers who send students to the office for sever behavior problems.

Bethune has a long way to go in providing quality education to its students.

I think that the school in general has some dedicated teachers, it's just the students who act out too much, but the people really care.
