My perception of Bethune Elementary is that as a structure/edifice, it is a clean well structured and well maintained builiding, as an environment, it is a pleasant, warm and friendly setting, in reference to the faculty and staff, it is a close knit, concerned for and about each other community that breeds and exuberate love and affection. As far as I can tell about the academics, it seems to be above standard and up to date on the latest technology and trendsthe students appear to be interesting in learning and the teachers appears to be well sutied and professionally efficient. The staff seems to be incorprated and intergrated into the body as the sum parts of a whole. The leadership appears to be solid and steadfast ase well as endearing, grounded and routed. I would highly recommend this institution to any parent or person who is seeking to place thier chid or children in a safe, sound and nurturing well maintained academic setting where the children's education, health and welfare is one of key ingredients to thier mission.
