I liked the atmosphere of learning and the opportunities this school provided me with. I enjoyed the wide variety of clubs, applied studies, sports, and organizations my school offered. I appreciate the effort my school has put into constantly changing and improving. I would however like to see better chances for the students to voice concerns!

Excellent schools, five in the district, three elementary, one middle, one high school. Schools are all in a district, making it very safe. Most sports fields are in the area, after-school activities at all of the schools. At the elementary schools the teachers are dedicated. Middle/High schools offer plethora of sports and clubs, encouraging students to get involved. Various levels of classes available at the high school level, including AP and College level classes. Partnered with UConn to offer certain classes.
As a graduate of Bethel High school, I can say it is a very good school. They have a variety of classes students can participate in from world languages to music and arts to wood shop and culinary. They have lots of extra curricular activities. The teachers care about the growth of the students and they form incredible relationships with the students. They challenge the students and are always ready to help them when students ask. In addition, they do a fantastic job ensuring students are prepared for college. I would be hard pressed to find something to change about this school.
