Bethel Grove is a great school I love it! I have 4 children whom attend there now and 2 that have gone on.The older two have moved on to American Way Middle and are doing great because of the knowledge they received from BG. I would really recommend this school to every parent that needs a school with great teachers whom loves the job. When you go to the school the teachers and staff make you feel weclome its like you are apart of a family and I would not trade that feeling for the world. I love just being around to show my children that I really care about what goes on with them and their school. P.S. I would like to thank all the teachers that have had the opportunity to teach everyone of my children. Thanks for the Love, Knowledge and Patience. Especially Mrs. Cook for Willie K. Cowans

This is a great school. My child has been a student since K. They are very thorough and challenge students academically. I am glad that we chose this school. This will be my childs last year and we will miss them dearly. We hope to find a school that is as genuine as Bethel Grove. The teachers are great with the students and communicate well with parents. Safety has never been an issue for us and the after school programs/ tutoring they have are good. I must admit before Bethel Grove we talked about private school being that our child is advanced but Bethel Grove suits our needs just fine.

Bethel Grove is a wonderful school. It is very family oriented and the teachers seems to really care. I attended this school when I was a child and I have two kids attending currently.

I agree with Ms. Paige, I feel like the teachers and staff care about the children of Bethel Grove Elementary. As the current president of the PTO, I would love for parents to be more involved. I know we all live busy hectic lives but we must always keep in mind that the children come first, and they are the reason we work so very hard. Angela McClaine, parent

I love this school, the classes are small and that way the teacher can devote the same about of time to all the students. The environment is a lot more structured than any other non-optional city school. The PTO members are great as well and the activities that they have and the things they do to support the school and the students are great.
