Incredibly sad at what Beatty is becoming. What once was a lovely school that felt welcoming has become a lock down warden run facility. The teachers are still wonderful as always but the new administration is not and the staff on the playground manning the gates act like they run the place. If you just want to drop your kids off and have no involvement it may be the place for you.

This is my kids first year at Beatty so I really can't tell much yet but one thing I have to say is the bathrooms are FILTHY and GROSS!!! I am really concerned about my kids using the bathrooms in such conditions, and even more concerned that no one has reported this to public health department. Something definitely needs to be done! If you need volunteers you should ask, since it seems to be a problem that the school or district is ok with. I'm looking into Emery to see if it is the same, otherwise I will transfer my kids as soon as I can because this is a health hazard!!! VERY CONCERNED PARENT!!!

I'm actually an 8th grader and have graduated from Beatty a few years back. However, I'd have to say, my years at Beatty were AWESOME :) I actually started out at Beatty as a second grader and the teachers there were just so amazing. They have so much interaction with the students and my 4th, 5th, and 6th grade teachers (Mrs. Utter, Mr. McDonald, and Mr. Hopkins) were awesome teachers who have a great passion for teaching!! They will seriously go above and beyond and I have literally carried their teachings into Jr. high. Because of their amazing teaching, my years in Jr. High have been very easy and I am now ready to move onto high school :)

This is not a good school. The bathrooms are disgusting and would be condemned by the health department. The school does not have modern technology despite many 'fundraisers" by the HSO throughout the year.

This is a wonderful school. The faculty cares so much about all of the students, and you always feel welcome. Parental involvement is welcome and it is easy to volunteer. Communication between the school & parents is good. The activities of the school are all about getting the family together.

I have a Kindergardener at Beatty, and so far, I have found that the teachers work together to identify the children's strengths/weaknesses early on. My son had the advantage of a year of Tutor Time and Hooked on Phonics prior to starting Kindergarten, and reads at a 3rd grade level. His teachers decided to give him a different level of work 3 days a week, that would be supervised by the teaching assistant.

Great school, teachers are helpful, great study/play environment! Needs some improvement in providing food choices in cafeteria considering students' need, this will help kids and provide relief to parents.

It's a great school, they have lots of extra-curricular programs available for students and the staff is excellent. Three of my kids attended Beatty and there's not enough to be said about the school, their staff and their level of education guidance

School is located in a nice large community of homeowner and condo-homeowner's. There are lots and lots of tutoring businesses located around the school. Can be a great experience for a child. As far as improvement, this school can use an improvement on focus of latin and african american students in order to raise test scores.

This school does not consider GATE relevant when it comes to California State Content Standards. All time and energy put forth by the students who are part of GATE activities is voluntary and no 'credit' is given for the amount of effort required to participate. This practice seems to deviate from the School District's Assistant Superintendant's (Ms. Ryder) directive: 'The GATE program for gifted students is a regular, integral part of the entire school experience.'
