What an awesome display of the wide-ranging interests and types of students that Bethany showcases.  These kids were incredible.  You guys are doing things right over there!!!” – Barnard Baker, Associate Admission Director, The Summit Country Day School

 

“Wow!  Thank you so much!  It’s one thing to talk about Bethany, but an entirely different thing when you actually visit the campus and meet the staff and other students.  My friend Trista now knows what I have been talking about all along.  She was totally impressed and fell in love with the atmosphere.  The Student Ambassadors did an excellent job.  She is very excited to pursue the application process for the 2014/2015 school year.”  – Joyce Merritt, Bethany Parent

“We love Bethany School.  We have a student currently attending the school and a recent graduate of Bethany.  Bethany School had three critical elements for us.  First, it is an academically rigorous school.  The classes are small and the faculty is caring.  My oldest daughter has found her transition to high school easy because of her preparation at Bethany.  Second, there is a wonderful spiritual atmosphere at Bethany.  There is an emphasis on character, citizenship and open mindedness.  It truly feels like a family.  Third, the diversity at Bethany is amazing.  There is racial, socioeconomic, and religious diversity.  Bethany School is exactly what a school should be, and we feel so fortunate that both of our daughters have experienced it.” – Dr. Parul Bawa

 

“…our recommendation is a testament to the dedication of your staff of teachers and your leadership as the principal.  We truly feel Bethany is the best school in the city for K-8!” – Cedric & Alycia Evans, Parents of two current Bethany Students and one Bethany School graduate

 

“I think as the years pass, I look back at what a great foundation I’ve had in my education and upbringing, and I realize more and more how privileged (and sometimes sheltered) that experience was.  I can’t say it was all perfect, but I also don’t know many people who can say they had problem solving labs and writing workshops in grade school; or the opportunity to get so many other kinds of enrichment — computer classes in the 1980’s and 90’s, international exchanges, school house symphony, zoo animals at school, hearing the stories of people with disabilities, etc.  I think underlying all of that was the emphasis at Bethany on character education and creating the foundation for principled adults with an orientation towards curiosity and lifelong learning, not just educated/skilled adults who would be prepared for the workplace or for high school or whatnot… While the skills and knowledge were important, I got the most from the modeling of a caring and nurturing and inclusive environment.  That, and I always remember that you’d shake our hands every morning, and what that meant to me, making that personal connection with each student.” — Nick Sakurai – Class of 1995

 

“Everything I’ve done at Bethany has provided me with excellent learning experiences, but my favorites are the Christian Education classes.  Coming from a secular public school, I didn’t have religion classes or a chance to ask questions regarding my faith.  This is a class I thrive in and enjoy, because the teacher is very welcoming, and this subject never ceases to feed my curiosity.” – Class of 2013 graduate

 

Favorite Bethany Memory: “When we went on all the different field trips.  It made me get to know everyone, connect with them, and also have a better relationship with the other students.” – Class of 2013 graduate

 

Favorite Bethany Memory: “I don’t have just one; I have many.  Every time I was with my friends have a laugh is a memory.  Every day at Bethany, things happened that I hope I remember my whole life.” – Class of 2013 graduate and student from K-8th grades

 

“Bethany School was and still is the greatest place on earth.  I have learned so much during my nine years here.  I have been taught by some of the best teachers and have made very good friends.” – Class of 2012 graduate and student from K-8th grades

 

“The people who surround you every day are a big part of your life.  At Bethany School, it is easy to love everyone that I see every day.  They make me laugh, teach me, encourage me, and give me confidence.  Without all of the friends I have made at this school, I don’t know what I’d be doing right now. – Class of 2012 graduate and student from K-8th grades

 

Bethany School has been my second home for nine long years. It is going to be really sad to leave.  Everything that I learned here, I will remember for the rest of my life…I will never forget Bethany.” – Class of 2012 graduate and student from K-8th grades
