Schools are defined by their culture, and the staff and administration at Bethel Park High School have worked hard to forge a partnership with their students and their families to create an environment built on trust, communication, and achievement. This has created an immense amount of pride among the school community, and it's one of the reasons why we often proudly say that the BP stands not only for Bethel Park but also, "Best Place, Best Programs, Best People!"

Located in suburban Pittsburgh, Bethel Park has blue collar roots and a can-do spirit. We are very fortunate that our community values education and understands that hard work is the price of success and that we must continually adapt as the educational and professional landscape continues to evolve. That ethos has allowed BPHS to transform itself into a regional leader in innovative and progressive practices that focus on leveraging its resources, including its people, to educate its students far beyond the confines of the classroom.

Bethel Park's investment in its students through support and interventions has allowed the school to meet students where they are and create plans of action to take them where they need to go. The students that have and continue to walk the halls of BPHS are the legacy we are proud of, and they embody our school motto: Built on Tradition, Focused on the Future.
