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!

Bethel High School, is another educational facility that requires improvement. I attended this school for 4 years and was able to analyze it. Bethel attempts to put in effort and to be the best it could be but, in result, it does not reach such goals. Some of the teachers who work here are not necessarily fit to be educating others in regards to attitude and effort. In regards to college readiness, they successfully achieved it by working with Thomas Nelson Community College, to prepare juniors and seniors. The overall facility is average but have key factors that are focused upon. For example, the teachers who actually put in effort to educate others. Or the effort from administration to have the academies within the school to succeed.

The school requires improvement but it is slowly but surely making adjustments.
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! I was involved in multiple clubs and organizations, and the sponsors were usually organized and open-minded. Although I have already graduated, my siblings do go there and I would not have them at any other high school!
