Small Class Sizes & Strong Community

Bethany School offers one of the lowest student-to-teacher ratios in all of Cincinnati. We know that children thrive when they feel seen and heard. With a 6:1 student-to-teacher ratio, and class sizes of no more than 15, our students receive individualized attention in a safe, caring environment.

Indeed, our commitment to teaching children goes beyond the classroom. As a community, we help students build strong character and find their sense of purpose. We value respect and diversity and seek to create a joyful environment where play and discovery help cultivate a love for learning.

High School Ready

Year over year, Bethany School 8th graders  have a 100% acceptance rate into the top private schools in Cincinnati.

Our middle school program focuses on preparing students to thrive in high school. In addition to helping students excel academically, we teach our students essential time management and note-taking skills. Additionally, we prepare them for the HSPT. Finally, we offer school counseling services that help families identify and determine which high school will be the best fit.
