Open Quote I have been a student at North Bethesda for one year now, and moving on to high school, and I must say that it has been some of the best school years I have ever experienced. Although there are a few flaws, overall it is one of the best middle schools I have been to. I live in a military family and have moved plenary of times, and make very little friends in the other schools. But at North Bethesda, the staff is very helpful to everyone, and many of the students are very friendly and are happy to be my friend. I will be tremendously sad when I have to move again, but North Bethesda will always go down as my favorite school so far. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
