Betton Hills Preparatory School
Betton Hills Preparatory School is the first official Core Knowledge® school in the Florida Panhandle. Founded in 1988, BHPS has been committed to excellence in education by guiding the child of today towards a knowledgeable, successful, and responsible tomorrow. We also provide our families with extra support through our After School program. Additionally, we offer the opportunity for those students with post-September 1 birthdays to start our program at an early age if they are academically, socially, and emotionally prepared.
Our unique approach to teaching combines Florida’s Sunshine State and Pre-K Educational Standards with the groundbreaking Core Knowledge Curriculum developed by E.D. Hirsch, Jr. This broader vision ensures that our students perform well in the classroom and obtain a first-class educational foundation that will carry them successfully into elementary school and beyond.
Coupled with the above, our inclusion of the fine arts, theatrical exposure, technological training, and activity awareness immerses your child in a balanced system of intellectual, moral, emotional, physical, and creative development.
