My daughter has been bullied since the beginning of the school year. Nothing has been done for her. I've pushed and fought and have gotten no where. I'm told it will be handled by the code of conduct.. obviously they don't have one of those. The techers push her away instead of helping her by telling her to "suck it up". She is EIGHT And scared. They do not commicate any of the daily issues my child deals with, my child tells me. It's a teachers job to protect and comfort my child when I can not. (I'm aware they have many children) I'm VERY disappointed with this school and how they handle things. If we are zoned for this school next year, I WILL drive my kids some where else.

My daughter is in the Dual Language program at Beauclerc and I am very happy with it. Currently she is in 2nd grade and has been at this school since Kindergarten. I have no intentions of moving her to another school.

My son is entering his third year at Beauclerc and we love it. In fact we moved to be closer to the school after his first year. He's in the optional Dual-Language program so he's learning to read and write in Spanish in addition to English. He's making amazing progress and is always happy to go to school. Many days it's hard to tear him away from the Extended Day program.

I am so glad that I decided to put my child in the dual language program at Beauclerc last year. By the end of kindergarten she was already reading and writing on grade level in Spanish! The dual language teachers are so caring, passionate and devoted to their students. I love that the dual language program creates its own smaller community within the school! Also, the new art teacher this year is amazing!!

Very disappointed in this school, my child was in the dual language program this year and had an over all horrible experience the first half of the school year, his teacher thought it was appropriate to rip up papers that the children did not do correctly. We teach our children better manners and not to bully other children what happens when teachers bully our children?? My child had a severe lack of confidence, crying a lot and an overall lack of interest (depressed if you will) . I had no idea what was going on until I hear that the teacher was basically humiliating children in front of there classmates. Needless to say I pulled my child from that class when I found out the teaching style of this individual and my child soared through the rest of the year and I'm happy to say has his self confidence back as well as a new outlook on school!! If you read this and you know how you are you should be ashamed of yourself, if you don't like your job step a side and let other teachers that want to teach our children have a chance...

I thought this was a great school...I was wrong. I am not too sure the faculty cares for the students. What I have seen thus far is inconsistancy of the expectation from the student, lack of genuine care for the progress of the student, and overall lack of self discipline from the teachers. Is it right for a teacher to say shut-up to a child under any circumstances? What about to the extent of taping a childs feet to the floor with duck-tape because he is hyper-active...what about taking the children outside and having recess once a day for an energy release so that the children may concentrate better. Since when does a teacher decide to have recess inside the classroom everyday because it's too hot for the "teachers" to go outside? mmh...I wonder to whose benifit it is to stay inside all the time. Would I recommend this school? "NO"

This school has been great to both my daughter and my son. Not only do the teachers become very involved, but the assistants make a huge difference as well. Hartless/Gibbons/Peck will forever be someone my daughter looks up to. The things that parents try to teach their children at home sometimes get blown off, well because we are the parents :), have been taught here at this school and it means the world to a lot of parents. Thank you everyone on staff because everyday you make a difference in a lot of lives. Kudos to all of you.

My son is going into 1st grade. He started his school experience with a great teacher ( Queen Hicks ) He wants to take her with him every year. I hope his 1st grade teacher is as great as his Kindergarten teacher. We will miss Queen Hicks!!!

My son is finishing his last year at Beauclerc. He started with a wonderful kindergarten experience (Queen Hicks) and ended with a wonderful 5th grade experience (Mr Gibbons & Mrs Whitelaw). 1st grade was rough due to the teacher which messed up his 2nd year too. He rebounded when he got Mrs. Costiloe in the 3rd grade. Overall, Beauclerc is a great school. I HIGHLY recommend the teachers I have mentioned!

I could not ask for a better school or a better teacher Ms Teper. She is my son's kindergarden teacher and she has made his transition into school such a wonderful experience. He just loves her. Beauclerc is an excellent school. Great Job

I pray that as the school year progresses, I will appreciate the overall progress. My first dealing with this school was orientation and I was very disappointed. For an A school, I expected a lot less visible CHAOS and wished there had been more structure to the orientation. I don't yet know what to really think of the school or about my daughter having a male teacher in 2nd grade. And for first time parents/students to the school, someone could have taken the time to show us around without rushing us in different directions.

I would highly recommend this school to any parent. I have loved this school since my daughter was in kindergarten; she is now a 5th grader and a patrol. The teachers are WONDERFUL! Kudos Teachers- Courter, Hurst, Locy/Taylor, Delke, Lee.

Ms. Locy, first grade teacher, goes the extra mile to help my daughter. The school staff is available when I need them; the new Principal is very energetic, kids love her. Beauclerc is a great school in a needed area. More extra curricular activities should be included in the curriculum. I love the teachers at Beauclerc Elementary, they are the best.

I have to tell you how wonderful Ms. Bennett is. My 1st grader had a rough time when he started due to a long distance move from out of state. Ms. Bennett never got upset with him and showed him so much compassion. My son has come so far.(academically and emotionally!) I visited the class the end of this year and I was amazed at the compassion yet firmness she had in the class. She is wonderful! I wish I could carry her into 2nd grade with my son. We'll miss her very much! PTA Not so good. I signed up and never received one contact the entire year. Nothing. Not impressed. At all.

I believe this is an excellent school . My son attended kindergarten there and loved it. Not only did he learn a lot in just one year he really looked forward to going and hated to miss even when he was sick. Mrs schutt is an incredible teacher who is firm but caring with all her students.

We have had horrible encountors with the administration. They fail to admit fault when they are obviously wrong. Very little parent support.I have always felt 'talked down to' when adressing problems and concerns.

The administration fails to perform their duty and alleviate any problem. In the unfortunate event that you have to speak to these so called professionals expect to be spoken down to and treated as though you re an elementary student.

I am disappointed in my child's introduction to the Public School System. My child is female, with an October birthday. She excels academically, and as a parent I was told the class was broken into groups due to behavioral issues. I feel my child's education is being compromised because she is used to 'separate' the kids lacking discipline. Overall I am looking into private sectors for a more accelerated education.

My son has went to Beauclerc now for three years. He will be in the 4th grade this upcoming year. This school has wonderful caring teachers, who really take time with them. I just want to thank Mrs. Howell and Mrs. Simmons for a Great year! We will truly miss you next year. My only negative comment would be that they don't have hardly any field trips, and I think that is necessary from time to time. My son has social anxiety and is in the EHE program at Beauclerc, and I think more outside involvement with his classmates would do him and his classmates well. We have only had 2 field trips the three years he has been there. That's my only negative comment for this school.
