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 love Beatty. My girls have been here for 3 years and I coul not be happier. The communication between the staff, teachers, VP and principle is just fabulous. There is always either the VP or Principle on the blacktop to greet the parents and students every morning. I am welcome to come to the school at anytime and speak to the teacher as well as the office staff. The teachers make it a point to help my children meet and exceed there yearly goals and treat all 3 of them as individuals. I absolutely love Beatty and so do my girls. I have a child in the Gate program and it is by far the best in the district. If you have the opportunity to have Beatty as your school have faith your children will blossom. This happened because the parents and teachers work together to set a plan for each child to succeed.
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.
My daughter is in K with Mrs West and she is doing awesome!!! She is already reading and writting very well!! The teachers are doing an excellent job!
beatty is a great school!The teachers there teacher them so much!All my kids went there and they all made honor roll and prsendental award with all 4.0 average
This is a wonderful school with a great vision for the future, that the teachers are able to share and encourage the students to use in their academic and family life. Activities and involvement are encouraged and welcomed, in all areas. This is a faculty that really cares for the students at Beatty giving them the tools that they need for success in life.
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.
Gordon H Beatty Elementary is an excellent school. The principal and all the educators are wonderful and really support, care and encourage the children to learn.
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.'
when my daughter went to Beatty Elementary. She got the best education she could ever get any where else.
