My son has been coming to Bethune since PreK. We have enjoyed his time there. I have nothing but good things to say about this school. From the start we have felt welcome and safe. Most of all I turly feel that the teachers and administration staff are there to ensure the students are getting a good education. I can see they do their best to help the students thrive. Thank you everyone at Bethune from 2010-2014 school yr.

This is an awful principal to work for. If you are thinking of working there, run away quickly.

This is my first year working with parents on parental involvement strategies. I see alot of caring teachers and parents. The environment is very structured but welcoming. The kids are very well behaved, I have worked at other schools and seen the difference. I am very glad to be working at this Recognized school.

The students have little or no motivational incentives to encourage good behavior and good grades. Hard to reach and schedule a meeting with the principal.

Both of my kids go to Bethune and as a parent I am happy with the teachers, staff and principal. I am able to talk to the teachers when I have concerns regarding my kids schoolwork and conduct. I like the fact that the school encourages more parent & child learning interactions by hosting family math night or other family night functions. I like the way the staff encourages the kids to do their best. I do wish the school offered after school programs for extracurricular activities (ie: cheerleading, art, mathletes, etc). I feel that in due might be possible. KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK!

My children are students of the above school. This I think would be a good school, if the teachers would send progress reports to parents. Many parents do not know how well their child are doing, not until they recieve report cards. How are we suppose to help our children improve if there is no notification what so ever to parents. So as for me, I would highly recommend is for the teahcers to find away to help students out and parents.

'Mary Mcleod Bethune influences parent involvement and yet we have poor turn up. In my opinion it lacks extracurricular activities for the students, such as basket ball or baseball for the boys. We are in a high delinquency area and keeping the students busy is one of the best ways to keep them out of trouble, this also helps keep our children with high grades do to the no pass no play rule. The staff is very untimely in providing the parents with notice of the planned events. The PTA meetings are always a chaos they lack organization and several one s I have attended the PTA members are not present and school staff is lacking also. When they do get their act together the meetings are informative and full of school spirit. The school/students need their programs to be more complex, I have a high expectation of my son and the programs he has been in are lacking interesting dialog. There is no imagination in the drama department. The children like to pretend they play their part.

Mary Mcleod Bethune influences parent involvement and extracurricular activities but they are very untimely in providing the parents with notice of the planned events. I like that my son's first grade teacher is very involved with the kids. The PTA meetings are always very informative and full of school spirit. I agree that Bethune is one of the best schools in town.
