Open Quote This is the type of school every parent hopes to find for their child where not only are the academics outstanding but this is a school where the teachers actually take the time to really know the kids. I researched schools a lot when we first moved to the Charlotte area before finding Bethel and could not be happier with the results. 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.
