Bethlehem Catholic High School Reviews

I have attended Bethlehem Catholic for three years of my high school education and am going into my fourth and final year here. I would highly recommend one to attend this school if he or she is looking for a place with rigorous academics, excellent sports teams, and faith focused community. It is a smaller school (only about 180 per class) , which leads to both pros and cons. Some pros are smaller classes, better student to faculty ratios, and familiarity with most of the student body. Some cons include not as many class opportunities or class scheduling issues. Overall, Bethlehem Catholic is a place that gives students many opportunities to flourish whether it be in the classroom, on the athletic fields, or on stage in the musicals. The teachers really care about the students and their successes and prepare them very well for further education.

I am currently a senior at Bethlehem Catholic (or Becahi for short,) and I can honestly say that there is no high school like it in the country. The academics are stellar and every year I’ve been there I have had teachers who were passionate about what they taught and genuinely care about teaching it. I was involved in the school play and the quizbowl team every year, and in spite of the time dedications for both of these activities, I managed to find plenty of time to do my homework and maintain an enviable GPA. In spite of certain changes in the leadership of the school recently, Becahi has remained as terrific as ever. If you are considering Becahi for your children, don’t hesitate in sending them there because they will find an amazing community of friends and be taught by brilliant teachers.
A student can get a good education there. The value of other activities is mixed. There are a lot of clubs but some of them do nothing.
The sports are mixed. A few such as wrestling get great support and leadership from the school while others such as soccer do not. The result is, fewer resources and incompetent coaches.
The price is reasonable for private education. Like most local private schools, its resources are more limited than the big-spending public schools.
