I am an alum of the Bethel Public Schools. I attended from kindergarten through grade 12. My experience with the Bethel Public School system was a positive one. I remember the teachers were awesome and cared about the students. The administration was pretty good. The academics were awesome and would prepare you for college. The school system had lots of extracurricular activities. The sport teams are okay. The food they serve is okay and they tend to offer healthy options. The schools themselves were clean and in great condition for the most part. They had decent facilities.The high school went under a renovation and I was a freshman at the time. They found asbestos in the ceilings and we would get sent home a few times while that was being handled. Now, they’ve moved the Bethel Police Station closer to the school systems so there’s extra security. There weren't any shootings or drug use. There wasn’t too much diversity when I was in school.

Teacher's personality and ability vary, facilities is that of a typical high school, perfect talent pool regarding students but school seems to not maximize potential currently. Culture is typical as well, while our sports teams are average to contenders at best. Attention to special needs groups are excelling, and the Bethel High School does appear to be making ambitious improvements from a students perspective. Students, personalities and abilities vary as previously stated Bethel High fits into the typical high school clique rather perfectly. Thus the experience overall is very much what the individual makes out if it.
I love Bethel Public Schools. They helped to shape me into the person I am today. Showing me right from wrong, preparing me extraordinarily well for the world that lay ahead. Both further education, as well as in life.
