Bethel Public Schools offers a wide opportunity spectrum for every type of student. It is super easy to find things to do within the school system. The campus is nicely placed and the entire staff always has smiles on their faces. I find it important for students to feel welcomed within their school and Bethel does not lack in that aspect whatsoever. It is a fantastic school to attend. It is a great community and an even better school.

Bethel Schools is a pretty small community high school. The faculty varies greatly. While some teachers are incredibly intelligent, some are not so much. The upper level teachers are very good, but some of the coaches could use more experience. While this may be, this school has a fine Fine Arts program-- with lovely choir and band, and the art classes. This is a pretty great high school experience for a small community, however-- there are not any active clubs or programs outside of the main elective courses. This is true for the high school, anyway. The school needs new buses as well, as some are very run down, including broken parking brakes, odometers, speedometers, and more. This school is what you make it, if you try hard and apply yourself, then you can receive a good education, but if you do not, the lower- level classes are of little to no value.
I have gone to Bethel Schools since kindergarten and I love it. It's a small town school but is growing rapidly. The people for the most part are very caring and community-oriented. But it is in Oklahoma so our school is very poor. I've been in the band program since 6th grade and we recieve zero funding from the school so any money we need, we have to pay for or fundraise ourselves. Most of the funding goes to sports, yet the sports program isn't as good as the band program. But overall I have enjoyed going to Bethel all these years.
