General School Mission

"Bethel Lutheran School seeks to nurture the spiritual, cognitive, physical, emotional and social growth of each child according to his or her unique abilities and challenges. Daily worship and lessons in the Christian faith and in the Lutheran tradition, and myriad opportunities for stewardship lead Bethel students to meaningful expressions of their spirituality. Bethel School addresses the cognitive needs of the child with a curriculum developed from national standards recommended by professional organizations representing science, mathematics, social studies, language arts, art, and music. Physical fitness and health education are included in each day's instruction. As part of a Christian community with a rich tradition of diversity, Bethel Lutheran School promotes understanding and acceptance within its community by facilitating discussion of emotional and social issues at school and at home.

Small class size and multi-grade classrooms contribute to Bethel's mission of nurturing the child as a unique individual. Instruction is focused on the developmental learning stage of each child, rather than on a specified grade level. Multi-grade classrooms enhance the learning environment by offering mentoring and peer tutoring opportunities. Working with the same teacher and classmates for more than one year provides continuity and stability for our children, and results in a comfortable, familiar learning environment. Bethel Lutheran School is committed to creating a loving, supportive, and safe environment for its children.
