Grafton Bethel Elementary School 5

I agree with another rater who questioned the school being rated a 7, but I suppose a few unwarranted low scores will bring the rating down. We have been very pleased with Grafton Bethel Elementary. The entire staff from the front office to the custodians are so warm and approachable. We are a military family, so our children have attended 2 schools prior to GBE and I can honestly say it's an amazing school. The teachers are not only caring and compassionate, but they challenge each student to their ability and encourage them to reach their goals. Parents are involved at this school and it shows! We have loved our time in York County and will be sad to leave GBE at the end of the school year.

This is the best elementary school in the county. I don't believe the 7 score rating is accurate. It is likely it has not been updated recently. I am glad we chose to live in Grafton and go to this elementary. Both my sons have been going to GBES since they were in kindergarten and have excelled. I have read the other comments and there is no bullying and if there is it is dealt with immediately.

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.

Majority of Teachers are excellent . New Principal /Assistant Principal are a promising duo and PTA is outstanding. Parents are very involved in school and children enjoy going there on a daily basis.

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.
