Open Quote This school leaves alot to be desired. If you're child is a perfectly behaved, textbook child, then this school is for you. Should you have any issues, save yourself the trouble and find a new school. The kindergarten teacher we encountered in particular was the least professional I've ever met. She spent her time yawning and acting disinterested when any concerns were brought to her. The principal is cold and uncaring. The staff were known for clerical issues. I wouldn't recommend this school to my worst enemy. Close Quote

Open Quote It's an old building but the staff more than make up for that, they have always been friendly and helpful. I feel my child is safe there and getting a great education. His teacher has a great communication line in place and I feel very invovled. Close Quote

Open Quote If you wish for your child to be involved with a school that is heavily supported by its community, continues to have an emphasis on the arts in education (music, visual arts, band), displays a strong commitment to excellence in academics (rated excellent on the 2010-2011 ODE State Report Card), and maintains an friendly/safe environment for its students, then Bethel Elementary is the place for your student.
The benefits of a small school community where "everyone looks out for one another" creates wonderful students who are respectful, responsible, safe, helpful, and ready to learn (these are the Bethel High Five standards we expect students to live by) and makes our school a special place.
The children are the best you can ask for in a school!
Other building features include Accelerated Reader, Rocket Math (focused on mastering Math Facts), a gifted and talented program for students in grades 3-6 who qualify, the Study Island test preparation program, NWEA Map testing for monitoring student growth and providing data for interventions, a wonderful music program under the direction of a gifted music teacher, and a very dedicated PTO group.
The principal offers a meeting and a personal tour (by appointment) of the building to parents and their families interested in finding out more about our wonderful school. 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.
