At Bethel High School, the staff genuinely cares ...  Read more

As a community member I have seen Behtel High decline greatly over the last five years. The staff is indifferent to the students safety and well being, test scores are low and racial problems and drugs issues are common. After seeing first hand the problems this school has I chose to home school my niece, ...  Read more
