You won't find more caring and dedicated Christian teachers anywhere. They spend countless extra hours working the many activities that occur. There is also no equivalent to the Lutheran school sports system. There are state tournaments in all sports and National tournaments in two of those. This provides an unforgettable experience for the kids and their parents. Kids start sports in 4th and 5th grade. There are also excellent opportunities for math, art and music, as well as spelling and geography bees. The art classes here are second to none.
Both my children have gone through Bethany. They are both very well prepared for high school, taking many honors and AP classes. The teachers are very dedicated and go well beyond what is expected. I recommend sending your child here.
Bethany is a wonderful Christian learning environment. Kids get one on one attention in smaller classes. Teachers love teaching and it shows! Families are involved in volunteering In the classroom and for school events. The school feels like a large Bethany family.
My husband and I have been members at Bethany Lutheran Church for 10 years. Our boys are enrolled at Bethany Lutheran School in Kindergarten and 1st grade. If I had to say my favorite thing about the school, it's that the called teachers and pastors (called meaning they are trained in Lutheran education) teach about the forgiveness of Christ every single day. That's the most important, but I also love the family environment, the excellent education that they receive, (our students go on to do VERY well in High School and beyond), and the individual attention that my boys receive. We can't say enough good things about Bethany.
I have been the pastor of Bethany Lutheran Church for 21 years. We put a premium on calling teachers to serve the Lord and serve the children here. I have attended as a student and/or pastored 9 Lutheran schools around the country and Bethany is far and away the best. The connection between the church and the school is a strong one because of mutual respect among the staff. We also are very welcoming to children from outside our church.
Bethany Lutheran School teaches the whole child. My son is not only challenged in academics, but is in God's Word daily. He loves the extra curricular options, especially basketball and track. The teachers and coaches truly care about each child, individually. Bethany even offers Spanish, Music, and Art classes. I would highly recommend Bethany Lutheran School to any parent looking for a caring, nurturing environment where their child will grow in all areas!
Couldn't have asked for a better 'partner' in rearing and educating our children. Bethany offers everything (and more) than neighboring public schools. High quality education via caring Christian teachers; Fabulous band program (beginning in 4th grade!); Competitive sports (volleyball, basketball, track, cheerleading, cross country), Drama & Choir. Our children have gone on to public high school and college and have thrived. Highly recommend Bethany Lutheran School to anyone seeking the most complete (Christian) education around!
My son is in his first year at the school and we love it. The staff is friendly and caring. My son has learned so much more than we believe he would have in a typical public school. We have yet to experience any cliquishness in general. I will say that the stay at home moms do seem to take over at times but I believe that would happen in any school. The teachers we have interacted with are wonderful, caring, and dedicated. If everything goes as well as it is now, we will be sending all of the kids here through 8th grade. They say it takes a village to raise a child. I have no doubt that this one will help us raise ours into amazing adults.
VERY DISAPPOINTED IN THE LEADERSHIP AND PASTOR OF THIS SCHOOL. LET SOMEONE ELSE LEAD AND TEACH YOUR CHILDREN. YOU DON'T WANT THEM TO LEARN THE LESSONS TAUGHT HERE. UNLESS OF COURSE YOU SET ASIDE THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS AND MANY HOURS FOR THE THERAPISTS.
