This school is a hidden gem in Rogers Park. My daughter has thrived emotionally and academically since enrolling. The school has a family-like atmosphere and the tuition is much less than other area private schools. There may not be as many bells and whistles as other elementary schools, but the individual attention and care that my daughter receives more than makes up for it.
Both of my girls go to Bethesda and I am very thankful that they are in a safe environment. The student to teacher ration is very low insuring that your children will get the attention they need when they are young. Go Bethesda!!!
My son currently attends Bethesda. It is a gem in the city. The teachers, principal and support staff are amazing. I feel the foundation that my son is getting is amazing for academics and creating guiding principles. The class sizes are smaller giving great attention to the kids. There is nothing better than asking how was your day, and hearing "Great! Did you know there are 206 bones in the human skeleton". I would encourage other parents to look into Bethesda.
both of our kids are at Bethesda they just love it! They both have wonderful, caring teachers and have excelled in their academics. You couldn't ask for a better principal who loves these kids and inspires them to be the best that they can be. Would recommend the school whole heartedly!
My daughter started at Bethesda last year and she loves it!!! The teachers are great, challenging and very friendly. The school is small making the teacher to student ratio a big plus! What I like most is the family atomosphere!! Thanks Bethesda!
Fantastic school. We moved here from another state this year and were worried about navigating the public school system--we were thrilled to find Bethesda. The kids felt at home from day 1. The class sizes are small, the work is challenging on each child's level, the teachers are great and there's a great community feeling between the parents, teachers, and kids.
I couldn't be more thrilled with this school. The new principal has so much energy and has put together an outstanding teaching staff. Academics are rigorous, the student body is incredibly diverse -- ethnically and even religiously. There are small class sizes and a fantastic family atmosphere. After spending years in some of the best public schools, Bethesda is as good or better in their curriculum, but far more personal.
