    "Bethune is such a great school, when i came here in the u.s, I never knew any English because I was from the Philippines and I came here in the u.s when I was 10 years old, then Bethune is my 1st ever school here in america, the 1st time I step at Bethune, I knew that it will be impossible for me to pass 5th grade because I don't know how to speak English, then after a few months, I learn a little bit of English because Bethune has this very wonderful program called "English learner" where they teach us how to communicate and speak English well, then it's very surprising for me to find myself as a middle schooler, when I was in 6th grade I gave meet lots of people that has the same problem as me, and I told them to not worry because of the "English learner" program. When I came into 7th grade I really know how to speak English now and it helps me to make new friends and it also helps me with my grade!! I was so excited to see myself speaking English because before I thought that it's impossible but again thanks to Bethune for helping me to experience new thing in America!! I never forget Bethune because they thought me that nothing is impossible!"

    "This school located in a much more ethnically diverse area should not be 60% Asian. All the other cultures, seem to be disregarded in academic preperation and overall concern. In a society so diverse, having such a lop-sided population offers no diversity. My daughter is Hispanic/African-American, and she is truly a minority at this school."

    "This is a great place to bring the kid's to learn, I like the program that they have this school year , 1) no more guardian inside the line, 2) no more bringing food during lunch time, if only guardian realized the important of being independent on early age. 3) no more parking inside the lot, The principal and Juan need help on this one some people are very stubborn to obey the rules, where is the Cop's . hoping this will continue for the rest of the school year and the following year, GO GO Principal Spiegel and the Bethune Admin. team."

    "Bethune School is a K-8 school with the highest CST scores in the Paradise Hills area. The administration and teachers have high academic and behavioral expectations of all of the students, regardless of ethnicity. The school offers music, technology in every classroom , and high school credit classes at the middle school level(geometry,algebra, Spanish) that qualify entry into the UC/CSU university system. There is also an after school programs: Prime Time, academic tutoring, drama club, and the tennis program. The diversity of the staff and students (Anglo, African-American, Asian, Latino, Pacific Islander) and the academic programs, the school has a lot to offer, In fact, grades 6,7,8 are almost full."
