8/12/2010parentMy son just finished Kindergarten and will be moving to 1st grde and I'm excited because he has learnt so much, the staff cares for your child, and pays attention to each child and their needs to make a great school. They're just AWESOME, can't find words to describe...lol
5/4/2010parentOut of five elementary schools that my sons have attended in Lake and Polk counties, Bethune Academy is by far the best! It has the most caring staff, outstanding teachers who have been there a long time, and Mrs. Fredericks, the music teacher, is phenomenal. They expect a lot of the students, and get a lot in return. They give the children great opportunities, help them love learning, and have lots of school pride. An amazing school!
3/22/2007parentWhere to begin? The teachers are among the best you will ever have the pleasure of meeting. They are caring but stern at the same time. The principal is the heart of Bethune Academy. Mrs. Knowles brings warmth, compassion and discipline that makes every student adore her. At one point, we considered moving to a nearby town. However, the thought of leaving Bethune was enough to keep us here. I have always felt safe each time I dropped my children off. The office staff always greet you with a smile. As a parent, your concerns are never dismissed. You won't find a school better than Bethune.
9/19/2006parentMy daughter just started Bethune Academy and I must say I have seen a great improvement in her work. She has homework everyday except fridays, which is their spelling test days. The parent teacher correspondence is great.
5/25/2006parentMy daughter is in 3rd grade at Bethune Academy. We have had experience with 5 elementary schools and Bethune Academy is at the top of our list, in great schools, if you are considering it, do it, you will not be disapointed.
5/25/2006parentYes, this school is in a bad area, but that has no impact on the level of education in this wonderful school. Both of my children attend this school.
1/22/2006parentGreat school with teaches who really care about the students.
8/8/2005parentSchool is supposed to be an A school. Location of school is not in a good area.
4/5/2005parentMy child has attended Bethune Academy since Kindergarten and she graduated from Bethune last year. All of her teachers were extremely qualified and prepared her for the challenges she is facing in middle school. The principal and office staff are very friendly and conscientious. WOW! I would recommend to every parent to apply to attend this wonderful school!
4/30/2004parentBoth of my children have attended Bethune for several years. I have been very happy with the educational excellence Bethune has provided them. I could not have asked for more educated, compassionate teachers then they have had at this school. I had considered sending both of them to private schools in kindergarten but chose not to when they were accepted into Bethune. I have never regretted my decision to send them to Bethune over a private school. I feel we are very fortunate in Haines City to have such an excellent school!
1/26/2004parentWe almost moved out of Polk County for the lack of good schools. This school came highly recommended to us. Our son was accepted so we purchased a new house and plan to stay for a long time. He is doing great. The staff and principal are extraordinary. Mrs. Pruitt is a wonderful teacher. We are so thankful that our son got in! FYI The transportation system has serious problems. Consider driving your children.
