Unfortunately, while we absolutely adored my daughter's kindergarten teacher, the school was not a good fit for our daughter with special needs. It took almost 7 months to get her evaluated for an IEP and they did not seem to want to provide her with the necessary services. She didn't begin to receive ESE services until the last semester of school and they were minimal at best. My husband and I feel like they singled our daughter out as a "problem child" rather than work with her to accommodate her needs. We feel like they forced us to pull her out and place her in another school.

This school is excellent at making sure that every available minute is used to learn. Children are required to bring a book to lunch so that they can read when they have finished their lunch. There is before-school chess club and after hours library access some days of the week to promote student access. Little things like that add up to extra hours of learning every week which really shows at test-taking time.

This school is rated A+ and requires parental involvement. It has a Language Arts program to encourage students to learn other languages. Additionally the school has started a chess club, which my son loves.

This is an excellent school. The staff really works together with the students best interest at heart. They are very family oriented. My child loves it there.

BEA is a wonderful school with high quality academic programs and a variety of activities before and after shcool like chess matches for various age groups. Parents are required to sign a contract agreeing to actively participate in the curricular activities to help their children achieve success. The communication between school and home is superior! I feel completely in touch with what is happening with my child at school and I feel empowered to help my child achieve his goals. I am impressed with the professional attitude of the teachers and feel grateful to be a part of this school.
