Welcome to Mary Mcleod Bethune Community School!

Bethune Community School is committed to high achievement for every child using strategies that include integrating the arts and technology into the curriculum. 

Students learn in a positive, orderly and safe climate that builds a strong sense of community. Students from every culture and background work together in a respectful environment that fosters self-confidence and understanding of others. The school recognizes the importance of family and community partnerships and is dedicated to being a support center for the neighborhood.

Bethune is a Turnaround Arts School!  Students will experience a variety of residencies and integrated arts opportunities throughout daily instruction!
