School Reviews

  • Recommended December 20, 2010 - I graduated in 1997, and while I was a student there, the academics and teacher-student interaction was amazing! I had the best teachers that pushed me to be the best that I could be. Not only did they know and care about me, but it was to they extent that they knew if I was having and off day, and would inquire about it. Mr.Elam was the best music and band teacher. He was always there to listen, as were all my other teachers, especially Mr.Shively, Mrs.Brown and Mr. Grey. The librarian left a lot to be desired, and I hope that has since retired. Since I have graduated, and the years have passed, I have heard that the school has higher student/teacher ratios, and that the use of open enrollment has allowed Bethel to take students other schools refuse, thus causing the school to fall into a decline. When I attended, it was a well run, well respected establishment of higher learning. Now I understand that State and Government funding has much to do with class size and need. But accepting students that no other school will take will lower test scores, which also have much to do with State and Federal money. I would recommend this school,but I would talk to the teachers and parents' of students first.When I attended the high school offered distance learning foreign languages. I took Japanese, while others took Latin. But you had to have a high G.P.A. to do do. The school also offered P.S.E.O.P. If you're G.P.A. was high enough you could attend Edison Community College, Sinclair, or Wright State U as a junior and a senior in high school, and these classes would count as both high school and college credit, so when you started college it would be as a sophomore. I loved my school experience, and have many happy memories of band trips, contests, classes and football games. - Posted by Student/Alumni

Are the Three Rs Robbing our Children?
For far too long the American public school system has failed to address “out-of-school” factors like poverty and their impact on what happens in the classroom. As the nation continues to become increasingly diverse, many schools are adopting comprehensive approaches to education that account for the unique needs of students so that each child is prepared for their future and not just for a year-end test.
States Fight to Teach “Ignorant” Science to Students
Wyoming recently became the first state to reject the Next Generation Science Standards because of concern regarding lessons that teach human-caused climate change. Several other states have also taken measures to reject the standards, which has some education officials concerned about the quality of instruction students in those states will receive.
School-to-Prison Pipeline Persists Despite Local, State and National Efforts
Inadequate funding and resources for schools, harsh zero-tolerance discipline policies, police presence in public schools, and de facto segregation continue to create school environments in which poor and minority students have little chance of succeeding. The result is a continuation of the school-to-prison pipeline that has been commonplace in the American education system for decades, despite federal, state and local efforts to curb the problem.
