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.

I moved to Bethlehem mid Sophomore year. From the start of my transition to a much bigger school the teachers were willing to help ease the adjustment and transition process in any way possible. The staff were always very friendly and willing to help and I made new friends within weeks of moving. The overall transition was a great success, I now have many more friends and the staff/faculty is just as helpful as ever. I can say that come graduation I will be able to look back with a positive experience at Bethlehem Central.
Decent teachers, enough AP classes, good engineering/CS, and decent sports. Students here are motivated, and are usually well-rounded. Many students get admitted into prestigious universities every year, and it is a well-respected school.
