It’s a school, just that, and a pretty good one

The other reviews on here are ridiculous. Nobody pays for grades, nobody is molested.
The only true thing is bullying. It can be an issue, as with every other school.
The Christian aspect of the school is what I struggled with the most. They do somewhat force the Christian practices onto you (being forced to pray, religious education is mandatory etc).
The teachers are some of the best you will ever meet. They are caring and accomodating to everybody, low grades or high grades, they are constantly going to try help you.
Some kids are a bit snobby due to their wealth, but not overwhelmingly so.
Overall, a good school.

50/50

Bunch of rich kids. I’ve been to a lot of schools in my life time, none of which has ever been so terrible as Bethlehem college. The parents pay for grades. If you have a parent on the board or a parent that has given money to the school, you will always get an award. They have an award called Christian character, doesn’t matter how nice you are, you must have wealthy parents in order to get it. They are corrupt and less Christian then most non-Christian schools. The kids are nice, but with wealth comes a lot of arrogance and snobs, so don’t expect many nice people. The teachers are under qualified, they hire them more for being a Christian then their actually skill in teaching. I had to sit with many teachers for multiple years who just had no idea what they were doing. They didn’t even know the topic they were teaching. I’ve been to six schools, none of which had the guts to not only be corrupt, but to not even bother hiding the fact. I guess this is the reason why so many students and teachers are leaving every year. It claims to be a Christian school when less than 30% of students are actually Christian and many lie about their religion just to get into the school. Don’t get me wrong, I had some great camps there and some very rare and special teachers, but all together it is an awful school. If you are a boy go to boys high, if you are a girl consider all schools. In conclusion, Bethlehem College I will forever remember as the worst school I have ever had the misfortune of attending in my entire lifetime.

On the outside it looks like the perfect school, but what people don’t see is the horrible bullying that goes on inside and no one nose before it’s to late. I was bullied by majority of my year and by the time I left I was depressed and then later that year I had an eating disorder. I had always been a happy kid nothing bad ever happens to me till I went to that school. Also if you haven’t been going to that school since year 1 people will gang up on you. I had a racist teacher , another teacher that bullied students, even some parents bullying in sports teams. I would never recommend this school to anyone! I know I am not alone in this view of this school , I know off many other students leaving for the same reason as I did , and now I’m at a new school that was rated worse that Bethlehem collage everyone has been nothing but kind to me , such a big difference between these to school and there is such a better vibe at this school than that one. Send you child here if you want there life to be ruined.

Despite what most ungrateful teenagers might say, they don’t truly appreciate how lucky they are to go to this school.

I have had an amazing experience at Bethlehem Collage. I have had so many opportunities that I would never had though if before. For example we competed in a global competition in Hawaii. We traveled to the South Island to play Jazz in the Jazz festival. We study things that are really relevant while still having fun. The students are good once you get to know them. The teachers are amazing. They’re all really friendly but you’ll find a few of them are really friendly and are really funny and a joy to be around even after school has finished. We have an amazing Performance Arts Centre where we do school productions once every two years. It’s just an all round great place to be. I’d happily do another year there
