Bethlehem School is a Tauranga contributing school for Yr 0-6 students.  The school opened in 1883 as a native school and has a strong link with its Maori community. In 2008 it celebrated its 125th Jubilee. For most of its history the school has been a small semi rural school but as Tauranga has grown so to has the school especially over the last 15 years. From a school of 120 students in 1995 to a roll at the end of 2011 of 485 much has happened in this time.

The school is organised into four teams or syndicates, Senior, Middle, Junior and Rumaki (offering Level 1 Total Immersion Maori). There are 20 classrooms with a variety of other facilities including a recently completed hall, a school pool, tennis/netball courts, a playing field, two adventure playgrounds and a fitness trail/confidence course. There is a school library with a small attached computer suite.
The school motto is "Taku rourou Tau rourou Ka ora ai tatou," which translates to "With your contribution and mine we will flourish"
