New STEM School Construction Complete - Bettis Prep in Need of Teachers

web posted July 11, 2018
TRENTON - The new science, technology, engineering and mathematics school, Bettis Preparatory Leadership Academy, will officially have a completed building on Friday, July 13. The school is set to open for the 2018 fall school semester with students in grades 5K to fifth grade.

Now that the building is in its finishing stages, leadership at Bettis Prep is focusing on bringing in more teachers for their first year of students. The school plans to have 12 regular classroom teachers (two per grade level) and one special education teacher.

“We’re very excited to welcome the new students once school starts next month, and right now we’re on a hunt for more teachers to teach those students,” said Myrtis Brightharp-Walker, principal of Bettis Prep. “We’re looking for teachers who are enthusiastic about the STEM field and ready to help the children learn.”

Anyone interested in applying as a teacher at Bettis Prep should visit BettisPrep.org and find the application under the ‘More’ tab.

The school is also currently looking for more fifth-grade students to enroll. Parents can visit BettisPrep.org and click on the ‘Enrollment’ tab to fill out the student registration form. Forms can be printed and mailed to Bettis Preparatory Leadership Academy, 69 Nicholson Road, P.O. Box 97, Trenton, SC 29847. They can also be emailed to bettisprep@gmail.com.
