At first I was open to the small school concept and didn't take the score serious . My son attended only one year , and unfortunately had a very bad experience . His first grade teacher seem very lazy and unprofessional in her persona and education towards the kids . Not once did I get any graded papers back or test scores to see the improvemt of my son . They have a morning round up for the kids and have a very unprofessional teacher get the kids excited by speaking to them in slang language " yo yo good morning kids" are you serious ! What are they teaching them . Also join he class for a school field trip and was very disappointed to see the way they watched the kids , the gave they parents 3 kids and let everyone go on their own , who's to say those parents are qualify of even safe around my son . I am not saying about all the staff there , but as far as my experience it was not the best. I would not give it a chance .

Beaumont is really a very special school! It has a "neighborhood" school feel to it, and the PTA really gets everyone involved. The teachers there are very experienced, and a couple staff members even went to Beaumont as a kid themselves! The Family Reading program is totally unique as it focuses on parents and kids reading together, and hosts "Family Fridays" where hundreds of parents are welcomed in to read with small groups of children. There is a new principal who just started, and is charting a positive course for the school that will only make Beaumont better. Parents are so excited for the new changes, and the future of our school. Go Beaumont Bears!

Awful school!!! The Principal is highly unprofessional. Clearly is not out to help child or parents. She is very rude when speaking to and will not work with you. The teachers you can tell do NOT want to be there because they were forced to be at school because of the the lay offs and there low scoring.

There is a strong sense of community at Beaumont. The teachers, principal, and staff care about their school and their students and are dedicated to helping every child succeed. Beaumont is like one big family and we are happy to have this gem right here in our own neighborhood!

Awesome school. Amazing staff. We transfer our kids to go here. Quite possibly the best kindergarten teacher I have ever known. And I have worked at 3 different elementary schools and attend another.

I have 2 children attending Beaumont Elementary. We relocated from Oceanside School District and my children have been attending Beaumont. My oldest is a special needs student and the teachers and staff have been so wonderful. My sons previous school took a whole school school year and never finished an 'IEP' for my son. When we moved and changed districts, the Staff at beaumont got right on it and set a meeting to organize this the first couple of weeks after he started his lessons. Everyone there is so friendly my kids will stay at Beaumont.

I have been so happy with my children's experience at Beaumont Elementary. The staff has been wonderful. My children are receiving a great education. There is such a good, family-like feeling at the school. I've had children there for the past 5 years and have loved their teachers. They have the greatest family reading program there also. The program is run by a wonderful volunteer, Miss Natalie, who is such a blessing to the school. I love Beaumont Elementary!

Beaumont Is a wonderful place for learning! I have personally seen it! the teachers are great! I DO make it a point to participate in my daughters class. (No parent out there can have ANY credibility to their statements about a school unless they are IN the classroom.) I highly encourage anyone looking for a great community school to look at Beaumont. The teachers, principal and VP are doing a great job. Keep it up Beaumont!

My son just graduated from Beaumont and it is a great school! The teachers are diverse and give an overall education. They love their jobs and the school. New, great administration last year and a PTA that is more involved and looking at increasing extracurricular activities at minimal costs. There are some negative comments about this school because of the demographics, but you're cutting yourself short if you don't look at this school closer! It's a great neighborhood school with stellar teachers!

Beaumont has been a pleasure to have my son attend. The teachers are great and seem to genuinely embrace their roles as educators.

Beaumont has been such a wonderful place to have my daughter attend school. We considered private education but decided to give Public Ed a try. The staff as a whole have been great! We (as a society) need to hear that our public schools really are doing great things . . .I see them happening at Beaumont!

Beaumont has been a blessing to my family. Both my son and daughter have special needs and the school has gone above and beyond to provide assistance to them. The principal and teachers are very involved with all students and parents. They encourage greatness and peacebuilding. The school also boasts wonderful after-school programs like music and art. My children are the third generation to attend Beaumont and I really wouldn't have it any other way.

This school reminds me of the family atmosphere of a private school. As a parent, if you have questions or concerns even before your child starts school their happy to help. They have good teachers and generally actually really care about the kids. Above all other schools in the area, I chose this school.

Posted July 9, 2005

Academically, I believe that the school was great. However, extracurricular activities and parent involvement were not the best. It didn't seem that the school offered any, and if it did, it was for a very large fee. If you are interested in school pride and involvement, Beaumont wouldn't be the place. We have decided to not continue there for next year.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.
