Our child has been at Bethesda for 8 years and we tell others that we will 'sell our house and go to using one car' if that is what it takes to stay at Bethesda! The academic program is outstanding; at every math, science, or speech meet we've attended this is proven by the number of Bethesda students that achieve top honors even though other schools have more students present/competing. Our students want to learn, have confidence in what they know but are humble about it, and always DO their BEST in everything they attempt. The students have a positive outlook of life, they aren't 'lost and without purpose' like so many young adults/students are in today's society. They are respectful to one another, to adults and to younger students. Our outstanding staff is always positive, encouraging, and enjoys teaching students that WANT to learn! Parental support is superior!
I wish i could have afforded to keep my child there, the best care a working parent could ever ask for. My daughter was apart of the family at Bethesda. She will always take with her in life, the values and education Bethesda gives to each in every child.
It is a good school, I should know. I went there from k-6 and then for financial reasons had to leave. I feel they do not have adequate facilities compared to public schools (classes and tech). The teachers are nice, but I feel that they pressure and shelter you. I am now in a good high school and was the best in my class at my middle school. It gives your child a good foundation, but after 5th grade they fall behind in some areas. If you want a marching band program, I would urge you to go elsewhere there is not enough students for a marching band. It does not offer a very large selection of classes but I have been told they are changing that. If you are having bully problems you may have to figure it out on your own. I speak from experience.
Everyone there is so friendly. They all have a real love for the Lord, and are extremely accepting to new people!
We just completed our first year at Bethesda and couldn't have been more pleased with the school. Our children previously had been at another Christian school out-of-state; but Bethesda definitely raised the bar academically. Administration emphasizes a spirit of excellence. Well-behaved kids, too.
I have been attending Bethesda Christian School since kindergarden. It is a wonderful school. It has a great acedemic program and great field trips. In 4th, 6th and 8th grade you get to take trips to San Antonio, Huston, Austin, and Washington DC. I believe this is one of the best schools around.
Bethesda Christian School is the best kept secret in Fort Worth. With a full 24% of the class of 2007 (30 students) receiving recognition in the National Merit Scholarship program (Ranking in the top 4% of the nation s college bound seniors.) the curriculum is clearly exceptional. Students at BCS are accepted at the end of each school year for the following year so trouble makers or children who don t want to be there aren t returning year after year to disrupt or slow class progress. When observing a group of students from several of the premier private schools in the area the Bethesda students stand out as far more dignified, centered, well-mannered and mature. BCS appears to turn out far more prepared and refined students than other programs offered in the Fort Worth area. Before you sign up with a private school and pay exponentially more for a lot of glitz, glamour and status - - visit Bethesda Christian School and see for yourself the long-term substance instilled into the BCS children. I have found the Christ-centered leadership, dedicated teachers, compassionate and accepting students and welcoming families create an environment where children thrive and flourish while generating exceptional educational results.
I find the the students very accepting of new students. The teachers go out of their way to help you meet your goals.
As a student at BCS, I see how the teachers genuinely care about our education. They develope personal relationships with each and every one of us. The academics are challenging, the sports teams are award-wining, the students care for each other, and the fine-arts are amazing. If you are looking for a clean, uplifting and friendly environment...all I can say is Bethesda!
Good school, good athletic program, makes students work hard but lets them have fun at the same time.
Bethesda Christian School appears to be one of the better choices for Christian based education in the Fort Worth area. They are accredited by ACSI and SACS which are recognized by the TEA and Southern colleges. This is important for college bound students.
Good test scores and curriculum. However, I would like to see an expansion of offerings in math, science, and foreign languages.
My son has attended BCS for 5 years. It is truly an outstanding school and Mrs. Vaughn and her staff do a remarkable job. Highly recommend!
We have had one graduate with two still in high school. We researched the area heavily before putting our children in Bethesda many, many years ago. Our youngest started in kindergarten. We have not been sorry. We made the right choice.
This school is the most awesome school. The teachers are so wonderful and the staff in the office are very kind and always want to hear from you regardless good or bad. If you have a complaint they will address it right away. I would recommend this school to anyone.
