Bethel Elementary school has no idea how to effectively handle behavior issues with students. It is total chaos, and the administration repeatedly suspends students in Kindergarten and First Grade because they don't know how to keep order within their classrooms. Parents are not listened to or taken seriously, they are merely brushed aside as mere fools who do not have the capacity to know what is right for their own child. This school would be wise to listen to parents concerns and start effectively handling the behavior issues of students, so that all children can learn and not miss days of school due to suspensions.

I have been disappointed with this school. This is our first year here and had I known it was this awful, I would have not moved into this district. Teachers don't communicate effectively at all. The teaching quality is truly poor. They lack the ability to utilize technology to their advantage. I'm truly surprised at how disappointing this school is considering Cabarrus County has some great schools. Bethel needs to learn from other elementary schools.

Awesome! This school offers a small town feel with some of the best teachers and staff in the state! Leading technology and common core standards bring this school above many of the newer stem schools and charter schools in offering excellant education.

This school does not have an administration that protects and serves the students. It alienates the parents and overrides decisions to suit the best interests of the staff. If you have a child in an EC program, you should request another school in the county because your child will not be treated properly.

Bethel built a new school in 2005 and it was my daughter's Kindergarten year (1st child in school). Great new school, good principle and staff, very open but also safe community school. Not overcrowded (yet) and I have two more kids and they will most likely attend here.

This school is a great community school. The teachers are the highest quality and very caring. I have seen progess in my own child as well as those whom I know through volunteering. Bethel deserves the School of Excellence.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 North Carolina used End-of-Grade (EOG) tests to assess students in grades 3 through 8 in reading and math, and grades 5 and 8 in science. The EOG is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of North Carolina. Students must pass the grade 8 EOG test in order to graduate from high school. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level on the tests.
