Open Quote This has been an amazing school! The teachers and staff are wonderful and the principal is outstanding. This school has a very strong PTO and many PTO funded programs and events. Teachers are well supported. Staff and students are happy there too. We’ve had a very positive experience and highly recommend Bethany Elementary! Close Quote

Open Quote Principal Rafael Montelongo and his amazing staff run a top notch school where kids and parents and teachers all feel appreciated as they actively participate in pursuit of a positive learning environment. The Watch D.O.G.S. (Dads of Great Students) program definitely helps foster more fatherly volunteerism which enhances the feeling safety and security at school. Oregon's premiere elementary school...

Open Quote I used to go to Bethany in 4th and 5th grade. It was one of the best and friendliest schools I ever went to. I felt like teachers actually cared about what I did, and did their absolute best. I had some of my highest test scores there (where on the OAKS I think I scored about 252), and I made some of my best friends. There's really no school like this one, and I'm not surprised it's better than 99.9% of all other schools. -Wolfgang Stolte 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.
