Bethel High school raises the standard bar of education, enforcing constant opportunities for each class by a variety of academies throughout our district. Teachers and staff members dedicate their own careers to invest time for every student to see significant growth upon their academics, preparing for scholars for the next journey outside of High School. Every year my school innovates the campus to make the rising youth and current students, successful people!

I love how Bethel High School is dedicated to develop lifelong learners who are emotionally, intellectually, and socially competent and are committed to the betterment of their community while having the confidence to pursue their aspirations in an ever-changing world. Overall, Bethel High School is an excellent high school with great staff. The teachers are interested in teaching their students and ensuring that they are college, careers and life-ready within four years. My experience at BHS was great!
The Principle and Assistant Principle are very engaged with the students and parents. They support the students. I always see one of them when I have to go to the school. I always see them at the student games. The teachers appear to be very knowledgeable in the subjects they teach. My daughter doesn't care for the school lunch but she is also very picky. If I had one major complaint, it would be against the counselors. They do not appear to be very helpful nor are they knowledgeable. The seem to have a hard time answering any questions that you may have and communicating the various option a student can take to get them ready for graduation. Overall, I feel Bethel is a good school but could used more counselors that are knowledgeable.
