Mary McLeod Bethune PreK-8

On the path to a brighter FUTURE!

  • Welcome to Mary M. Bethune School!

    At our school, we function as a family, working together to ensure that all of our students are successful. We work diligently to meet the needs of our individual students by understanding their strengths and weaknesses and developing lessons to meet their individual needs.

    At Mary M. Bethune, we strive to educate the entire child, not just their academic needs but also their personal interests. All Bethune Scholars receive instruction in not only the core subjects but also physical education, music, art, library media, and technology intervention. This allows our scholars to be college and career ready with 21st-century skills while, at the same time, exploring their interests.

    Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions or would like to learn more about Mary M. Bethune PK-8 School.
