Bethesda Elementary School Reviews

The staff and administration are wonderful! Very hands on and are willing to listen to parents and concern if they arise. My one complaint is the design of the school, it was designed in the 60's/70's with a more open concept design rather than individual classrooms, in 2017 and the number of students that need to be accommodated I believe the school could benefit from a redesign. Athletics are limited as this is a K4-5 school, but as you get into upper grades the district has a couple of opportunities to get involved in beginning level competitive swimming and cross country. They are great programs with dedicated staff willing to coach.

I attended Bethesda Elementary School from 2005-2011 when I was in Kindergarten through 4th grade. I enjoyed my time at this school when I attended. I enjoyed all my teachers, and the school was very organized and professional. I went to a different Elementary school for 5th grade, but if I were to do it over again I would have stayed at Bethesda for that year too because I really enjoyed my experience at this school.
