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.

This school ROCKS! The school works as a 'team', with everyone on board to make sure each and every child gets what they need. Teachers and staff are very helpful and any concerns are addressed right away. There are lot's of volunteer jobs, the staff and teachers are happy to have the help! My children attended GBE for 4 great years .

My son attended this school from K-3rd. I absolutely love this school and regret having to move him to another York County school. We switched schools when we moved out of the zoning area for GBES. At GBES, the teachers have all been wonderful. The principal is very involved with the students, the staff is very friendly and helpful. It felt like family there. I miss the school very much. PTA was a bit clickish as someone else said, but that probably happens everywhere. I love the after school programs they had for the kids, the way that the teachers are on top of any issue your children may have and communication is great. I would get a weekly email from his teachers telling us what to expect for the week. I'd also get personal notes from the teachers on things my son had done well or if there were concerns.
