I'm a father of one child in this school and I cannot wait for the year to finish, to let you know how happy I am with the presence of Mrs. Cordova and Covas. I truly believe this is one of the best schools in Miami Dade county.
I am a mother of two children in this school and I cannot wait for the year to finish, to let you know how happy I am with the presence of Miss Angeles Rodriguez. The school s principal makes an incredible selection of their teachers. During my many years of study I haven t had such an extraordinary teacher. Miss Rodriguez, your students love you as well as their parents. We have been very fortunate to have you with us this year. Thanks, thanks and thanks for the patience, wisdom and knowledge you have passed on to our children. You're the best thing that has happened this school year.
Ethel K. Beckham is an excelent school. Teachers, parents, staff all are great. They are always helping the students excel in their education.
This school is absolutely wonderful! My child just started this year and we are SO happy! Her teacher is excellent - my child is motivated and she LOVES going to school. I truly believe this is one of the best schools in Miami Dade county. Excellent leadership by pricipal and assistant principal and VERY high quality teachers! Thank you, EKB!!
Excellent academic program! The rating says it all. Teachers are great at helping students excel in their eduacion.
I graduated about 2-3 years ago but, I honestly ADORED! that school. The teachers were friendly, there was a small amount of homework, and the lunch ladies could let you get away with free lunch! Something every child loves! Well when I was in the school, I couldn't wait to see my teachers! Of course there is always that one evil teacher but, what are you gonna do? I honestly think whoever went/goes to EKB is very lucky! If you are looking to enroll your child into school, take it from a person who spent five years locked in there. It was amazing and what other elementary schools get a ten out of ten review?
My son is truly blessed to be in such a GREAT school!!!The schools scores speaks volumes, while all the other schools dropped dramatically, EKB's did not. A+ all the way!
One of my daughters have been attending this school since KG and now that she is going to 5th grade we are all HAPPY but at the same time we are SAD, She is in GIFTED CLASS and the only thing I can say is EXCELLENT...My other kid she just started PK last school year and it was a great year for her she is allways saying I love Ms. Cordova and Ms. Morales. Great Principal leadership, Great Teachers quality , Great Security Staff, Great caffeteria staff. They are the best.
Very good school. My son has a great time and very motivated to assist to school every day. The teachers are very dedicated with kids and they always try to be in contact with parents about student's progress (personally Ms. Santos and Ms. Goodis are great teachers).
When I went there as a kid, I had the time of my life. The staff are like family, and they remember me even after six years have passed! The librarian, Ms. Lopez taught me the joys of books, the art teacher Ms.Boone taught me the value of creativity and nurtured my artistic ability, and the rest of the teachers fed me the tools necessary for my success.I owe them everything, even the cafeteria's Lily (i love you!). She was great, and so was the administration, always supportive and helpful. They truly are the best.
MY DAUGHTERS HAVE BEEN ATTENDING THIS SCHOOL FOR THE PAST THREE YRS AND THEIR PROGRESS IS INCREDIBLE. ONE OF MY DAUGHTERS IS AN ESE STUDENT AND THE TEACHERS FOR THESE STUDENTS ARE VERY DEDICTATED.
My son was in a Catholic school and the experience was not pleasant. contrats, in EKB everything has been great. Miss Castillo, in Kindergarten, is exceptional. Education is very high and the treatment of parents and students is great. I am happy and glad to have found EKB.
Great school, our son started KG recently with Ms. Alvarez. Morning drop off routine easy, in and out. School has more than one entrance and parking is not a big issue. Kids seems happy throughout the school. After school program well organized. We're happy and our son is too, so far!
This will be the last year my second daughter graduates from beckham. they started in pre-k both had wonderful teachers. mrs garcia you are an asset to beckham, you lay the foundation very important for what will be a beautiful learning experience. the discovery team awesome mrs araujo,mrs rojas,mrs fonte-paz, mrs leiva,mrs trujillo,the office yvette, counsler mrs perri. cafeteria lily the security people and last but not least the person that makes it all come together loved by everyone teachers and students a like Principal Maria Tavel Visiedo shes the reason EKB is the best elementary school I have seen. and I recommend it to anyone with a child starting school. this school is the best kept secret, we have nothing to envey a private school. you all will be missed dearly!the perez's
After having had two children gone through this school, I would sincerely say with the quality of teachers and peaceful atmosphere you could accomplish the best for your child. The only negatives would be what is maybe a way of life everywhere, that if you are part of the discovery(booster club), pta, or when you get to the end, the 5th grade graduation click, you may be able to participate, or have some preferences over other parents.
Amazing school. my comments from 5-8-09 were missing the rating. I give it 5 stars all the way.
I took my child from a private school environment to this school and my daughter's life was changed for the better. She became more open and expressive than she was ever allowed to be in private school. Academically excelled beyond any expectation.
My daughter has been in Beckham since Pre-K and graduates this year. Words cannot express how I feel about the entire staff at Beckham. I am eternally grateful. Everyone is dedicated and caring. It feels like a close knit family - everything a parent wants for their child. The Diskovery program is absolutely wonderful as are all of the other teachers. My daughter has excelled due to the dedication and attention she has received at Beckham. It is with a very heavy heart that I say goodbye to the wonderful staff at Beckham. This is one experience we will never forget. I highly recommend this school to everyone! THANK YOU!
I am a new parent to this whole school system and even though I had my share of reluctant feelings about public schools, I was greeted by everyone I came in contact with at the school with only positive things to say about Ethel Koger. I was told I would not have to worry about my child here. It was almost as if it were a private school setting. Since school started I continue to only hear positive things about the school. I have even run into people I know that have done whatever possible to get their children into this school (when it wasn't even their district school to begin with). I am tremendously pleased with the curriculum and with how helpful the parent/communicator is. I have received responses immediately from the teacher. All in all, I believe its a blessing that my child goes to this amazing school.
This school is great starting from the administrative staff and teachers this a school you always want your child in
