Bethlehem Central High School is a very academically strong district. I noticed that if you are at the top of the class, you succeed easily and the lower level students receive a lot of aid from teachers. It is the middle/average students I notice that tend to have a harder time academically at Bethlehem. Many teachers are positive and willing to help, but only when you are willing to receive it. There are loads of construction projects currently going on, including the library which is even better equipped than some colleges. There are tons of extra-curricular and opportunities to take advantage of at Bethlehem.

Bethlehem offers many opportunities for their students, including a wide range of class selection opportunities, accessible support outside of school with teachers and a positive student body and community. Teachers are mostly very good except for the stray few. The school makes an active effort to help out every student in the school. They offer tutors, guidance counselors, a library, and gym. The only downside of Bethlehem is that there is little to no diversity.
I feel that Bethlehem has provided me with an education that prepares me adequately for college. Not only do I have to work hard to achieve my goals academically, Bethlehem's teachers also allow me to make close and personal relationships with them, furthering my ability to do so in college. I believe that sometimes being at Bethlehem is a lot of effort, but in the end, it pays off.
