Open Quote This is an exceptional school, teachers are always eager to lend assistance, and are always available to communicate. My husband and I are pleased with the homework our children bring home (2nd and 3rd grades) as it's on par with their previous school which happened to be a private school. We recently moved and after the debate between public and private schools we decided to go with Bedminster and couldn't be happier. Our children have adapted quite well and say they really like their classmates, that other children have been welcoming and very helpful. My husband and I are quite happy with the curriculum and they seem to have a focused objective each week and according to what we have seen thus far our children will be learning more at this school than their previous private school. Keep up the great work! Close Quote

Open Quote This school is awesome. My kids love going here and they have incredible teachers. The principle is amazing as well. I move to Pennridge 4 years ago and i was concerned since I was moving out of Central Bucks. But after a few years at Bedminster, I love my choice. 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.
