What a great little town and a fine school for young minds.

This school is small enough to give kids the attention they need and and not shuffled by.

BMS is, without question, the top middle school in Beulah! Maybe even Colorado..........


Posted April 22, 2010

Our school really cares about the students. The teachers go out of their way to make sure out kids are successful. The staff (even the ones that don't have my kids) know each one of them. We are all greeted when we walk in the door. I love our school!

I like to think of Beulah School as one of the best kept secrets, captured in a unique and ever pleasant time warp. One of which continues to expose, develop and teach a higher level of education and life skills to each and every one of it's students. Beulah School is truly and Icon of the past. This is a school that continues it's ageless journey towards academic excellence, by providing a quality and well rounded education to each and every student attending. We have teachers who care to make a difference in a child's life by helping them to first, identify their strengths, which inturn, helps them to rise above and beyond any delays or areas in need of improvement. The ability to give one on one individual attention to each student, the support for strong family ties, values, morals, fairness and equality were the foundation of this school in the past and the heart of the school even today. I attended Beulah School from K-8th grade and now have the privledge and honor of sending my children to the same, safe place during the first seven hours of their day, where I am rest assured they will be taught, directed, redirected and cared for by an awesome, family oriented Principal and faculty. A Blessed Alliance if you will, who welcome parents into the classroom, take pride in sending encouraging notes home with students, returning phone calls to parents and never miss the opportunity to recognize a student for his/her efforts and/or accomplishments. All of you Beulah School alumni out there, you know who you are! This is your chance to give back to your school by sharing your own unique, life changing, educational experiences and opportunities that only a school like Beulah School could ever offer and maintain still today. We love you Beulah!!!

This is a true community school. We hope to educate our kids where they live, by people who know the families here... you know, the old fashioned way. :-)


Posted April 18, 2010

We've been with the school for 16 yrs and must say these are some of the best teachers in the country by far. Beulah is truly a community school, the most friendly in the country.

I love Beulah school because I think it gave the very best education my two children could have had. Now my grandchildren are attending the elementary school and they are looking forward to attending Beulah school through the 8th grade. The teachers are truely caring and encourage the students to enjoy their education.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Colorado used the Transitional Colorado Assessment Program (TCAP) to test students' skills in reading, writing and mathematics in grades 3 through 10, and in science in grades 5, 8 and 10. The TCAP is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Colorado. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the test. The TCAP replaced the CSAP as Colorado's state assessment program effective for the 2011-2012 school year.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
