24 Parent Reviews for Bethel High School

I am a sophmore at BHS and really do not like it. The classes are to easy, classes are out of control, and students have no respect for anyone. I dread going there every day and know I will not be ready for college if I decide to go.

BHS is a sub-standard school. My child says students are unruly, and texting all during class. To the parent who talks about the "anti-intellectuals" in the town, I understand since the majority of the probably went to the Bethel public schools. The teachers only are concerned about being friends ...  Read more

All of the Bethel public schools are outstanding! The teachers and guidance counselors are on top of everything considering my child has learning and social issues. Also, the security at the schools is very strict and makes me feel at ease.

Bethel High School is far from "top in the state" is average at the very best. I found their math program terrible, and many other areas way below my expectations. I expected improvements after the renovation and while the building is much nicer, the academics are still below average.

I thought this part was called 'Parent Review', not disgruntled student review. The school is among the best in the state. This is a vast improvement over where it had been. The BOE is far less poitical than it had been. The NJROTC has recieved the 'Distinguished Unit' designation since its inception. ...  Read more

I went to this school in the class of 2008. It was renovated too late. Our class was the class that finally pushed the school to expand. The conditions there were terrible (we didn't have ceiling tiles in over half the school) and everything was well 'aged' The school was falling apart and there was ...  Read more
