High School Principal
Welcome to Bethel High School!
BHS is a place to learn, grow, and prepare for the future. Academically, we offer Advanced Placement(AP) courses, STEM classes, College Credit Plus (CCP) courses on our campus, music and art classes, and a host of electives. Our extra-curricular options feature a choir, marching and concert bands, a spring musical, various clubs, an Academic Team, and a variety of athletic opportunities.
To our parents and guardians, we value you as a partner in your student’s education, encourage you to attend as many activities and events as your schedule permits and to become actively involved in our school. For the student, take pride in yourself and in your school. Treat others like you want to be treated and work hard in both the classroom and in your extracurricular activities. Our two main goals at Bethel High School are 1) to have a safe learning environment where students exercise respect and responsibility and 2) for students to learn the skills that prepare them for life in the 21st century.
Bethel Local Schools is a great place because of its motivated students, its caring faculty, and its very supportive community.
On a personal note, I am thrilled to be in my sixth year at Bethel and the 27th year in education. I like to look at a glass as ALWAYS half full and NEVER half empty.
