Shining Mountain Elementary School
Shining Mountain Elementary School has a unique history in the district. The school opened in 1978 as Bethel’s sole K-3 school, but just two years later it expanded to K-6. Facility upgrades were made to the school in 1988 and 1997, but it wasn’t until 2012 that Shining Mountain got a major renovation. That renovation included state-of-the-art design features such as sound reinforcement in classrooms, learning walls, wireless access throughout the building, and smart boards.
