My children attend BCS and while the experience has been pretty good there are a few things that we are not thrilled about. This year they decided to reduce the staff and a few classes are now jammed packed. 21-22 students in one class. There was no notice of this to any of the parents. For a private school we expected to remain at the 12-15 students per class we started with. This has caused a lack of one-on-one time . The lunch schedule changes so often and we never know if hot lunch will even be served. In addition to the tuition we are constantly being asked to contribute additional money & we do feel pressured. Other then that the school and teachers are great.

I have all four of my children in BCS schools and have only praises for the faculty and administration. The principals and the new superintendent are top notch, too. My children have been challenged academically and taught the values that matter to me. Also, the dress code is kept simple and therefore relatively inexpensive. They work hard to keep tuition as low as they can so that more families can afford to give their children a christian education.

Our child had the pleasure of attending BCS from K-8. We could not have been more pleased with the staff, academics and moral and spiritual excellence of the school at both campuses. Our child was nutured and encouraged by seasoned teachers who were both kind & loving. We were always treated with respect and are grateful to have had this amazing experience with BCS. May the Lord continue to bless Bethlehem Christian School ! Thank you...the Schnable family.

Wonderful school, Awsome teachers. They not only teach with compassion, but you can tell they care for the students. In an enviorment like that students can't help but learn. They not only are taught book smarts but also how to treat others as God would have you treat them. An important lesson needed in today's world. Great academic program. Our daughter loves her school!

This school has an awesome academic program that provides your child the fundamentals to master all subjects and goes beyond the basics. All children take music classes even pre-k and they offer private lessons too. Many other extracurricular programs are offered as well. Sports are also offered. The parents are great a lot of moms and dads actively supply the school with their time(lunch duty,field trips,fundraisers,movie nights,brain game nights,roller skating nights,etc.) And not only is this a great school everyone becomes a community united to teach our children the best academics and equips our children to live like christians not just learn what it says in the bible but put what we preach into action, I truely believe this is a awesome school,but if you send your child here it will be a great companion in raising your child through God's eyes.

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.
