School Reviews

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.

Urban Public Schools Come to the Rescue of Black Boys
Public schools across the nation are implementing programs that help keep young black men in school and off the streets. Boosting graduation rates, reducing gang involvement and violence, and providing positive male role models are just a few of the common elements of these programs. Yet, the achievement gap between black boys and other peer groups remains extremely wide.
