The Bethel School District is a dynamic district that covers over 200 square miles in southeast Pierce County.
Currently, Bethel is the 16th largest district in the state with an estimated enrollment of over 18,000 students.
Bethel has 16 elementary schools (K-5), six middle schools (6-8), three comprehensive senior high schools (9-12), an alternative high school (9-12), an elementary online academy, and a school of choice (K-7). In September 2010, the Pierce County Skills Center opened its doors to district and county students.
The mission of the Bethel School District is to provide a safe educational environment which enables students to develop and apply the skills, knowledge, attitudes, and values needed to realize their maximum potential.
With this mission in mind, we commit to the following:
Through the accomplishment of these commitments, students will be better prepared to participate as ethical, cooperative, responsible, and productive citizens.
The Bethel School District will work with parents, the business community, and the community at large as partners in the achievement of this mission.
