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.

Of course movies like High School Musical gave me an unrealistic expectation of what high school is really like, but I would say I was pleasantly surprised with high school. Academically I am in many challenging courses so on that front it's been a lot of work, but I expected that. What I did not expect was the spirit that our school has. One of my favorite school events was Spirit Week which is the game before homecoming. Throughout the week people are dressed in crazy themed outfits and finally on Friday everyone is all decked out in school colors. There is probably a 95% participation school wide (including the teachers)! Based on this sense of community I would definitely choose to attend this school if I had the chance.
We have tons of clubs ranging from language clubs (Latin and Spanish) to the school musical, the Shakespeare play, sports teams galore, History bowl, science bowl, masterminds, jazz band, gay-straight alliance, gender equality club, speech and debate club, star wars club. We haves lots of clubs for students to choose from, and if they cant find something they like students are welcome to start their own club! All they need is a teacher to agree to supervise and have it in their room.
