So far, out of 4 other schools we’ve been in this one is the best!! From the first time we called to find out how to sign our kids in throughout the years, very rewarding & big jumps in learning for our kids.
The best. I could go on and on but it would take me literal hours to write everything they can do. Whatever they can't do they figure out how to do. They are the best. The work harder than anyone else. The best. The only school I'd ever want my children to enroll in. If only all schools could be like Bethel Manor Elementary School.
Overall it's a great school, unfortunately they really are difficult when it comes to kids who are different and don't follow the spectrum as others do. I have two children currently in this school and they are both ADHD. One is in 3rd grade and one is in kindergarten, my kindergartener also has O.D.D. luckily my kindergartener has had two great teachers as he was held back for not reading and writing the 1st time around. The teachers at first did not listen to me when I explained how he needs to have things done and was told "I'll find my own way". The Principal thinks he's supposed to be a parent to my kids as he keeps overruling my explicit directions for my sons to walk home together which has made it a pain. He says it's for "safety reasons" as if I can't do what needs to be done for my childrens safety. The crossing guards for the 2nd crosswalk are often missing. The parking lot is tiny and if it rains not everyone can park and walk to the door to get their child (ren). The staff blocks the exit and forces you to go out the entrance which can fit in and out traffic but some people block that when going out the in. Other parents fail to pay attention and almost hit kids because they are on their cell phones while driving. You have to sign in a computer to be able to walk around the school even at the opening hours which sucks because there is usually a line of parents. ..too bad they don't have something faster, it's great for saftey but still.
I love this school! My daughter was in 3 different schools from pre-k to 1st grade. This is the best one so far! Everyone says that York Co. schools are the best in the area and Bethel Manor, (IMO), is the best of the best. The teachers communicate with the parents and the principal is wonderful this year! He has children and is very understanding. The PTA does a wonderful job with activities and the carnival in the spring is great a community builder. The walkability is fantastic and I love that everyone at the school is military, its great for our children to know that their friends have the same things going on at home too. I will be very sad to leave this school next year. If you are undecided about living on base, this school should point you in the right direction!
