Grafton Bethel Elementary School5

A very caring staff. The teachers were willing to listen and work with me to ensure the best teaching for my child. My daughter no longer goes to school there due to a military PCS move and she misses it. Even after moving her teachers were still willing to help her. I would highly recommend Grafton Bethel elementary school!
I am a former student that was enrolled in this school. All i can say is that this school is not meant for students that need special education needs. As i was special needs, i was treated like i was sub-human by teachers and students alike. So if your student has special needs, avoid this school at all costs.
Teachers who have been at this school for a long time make it a great learning environment through their dedication and genuine caring for their students. However, beyond the classroom, many of the children are very cliquey and there is downright bullying although there are signs everywhere against bullying. The administration turns a blind eye as do the parents whose children cause the trouble.
This is a great school for elementary kids. The student body and teachers on a whole seem happy and engaged, and there is an active parent/caregiver presence. The admin staff, especially the principal, is very good. They seem to value childhood as well as childhood learning. Your child will learn without the specter of over-involvement at an early age.
