'I've just recently graduated from Beluah in 03, not once did I have a problem while attending Beulah. Not only do the teachers teach, but they find ways to teach while at the same time making it fun for the students to learn. I've been to 3 other schools before I started the 7th grade at Beulah, Beulah by far has been the best school I've been through. Beulah High is not the reason your kid failed, you and your kid are. As a student a Beulah, I have experinced what goes on there, and not once have I had a problem'
—Submitted by a former student


Posted February 20, 2004

My child just transfered over from Beulah High Achool and they failed at Beulah High for the last two years but when they went to another school they have all good grades. I don't know what the problem is but I think it is that there not making the teachers teach the students like they are suposed to. The other part of the school is excellent all except for teaching skills.
