May seem like a great school since it is located on the island, but parents beware: there will be bullying, apathy and favoritism here just like at any other public school. Don't let the zip code and grade "A" fool you into believing this is as good as a private school.
Such a great place to grow!! My oldest daughter attended Beachland from from kindergarten through fith grade and has gone on to do very well in middle school. She loves school and I believe the community environment of Beachland had a lot to do with that! Her sister is now in second grade at Beachland and is also doing great! Teachers are amazing! I'm so thankful my girls have been able to attend here.
this is the best school .....best teacher Ms Oconnor, she is kind and also love what she is doing, My son improved a lot since he is in Beachland.
Please take the time to read FCAT scores. Only 66% of the students are on grade level in Math. Would you want only 66% of the tellers at your bank able to count your money correctly. How is this deserving of an A rating? As intelligent educated parents how is this acceptable. There is alot of room for improvement for this to be a great school.
Beachland is not all that. The teachers are good. The parents are the problem. They try to run the school and most of them no nothing about what a good school is. If these parents want to see the true meaning of a good school the need to educate themselves. Once these students leave Beachland and go to the Highschool which only has a college readiness index of 14%. How does that make this a good school . All of Florida needs to educate themselves on what education is.
Beachland is a GREAT SCHOOL!!!! Sought after to the point of parents buying within the school's district to assure their kids qualify to attend. It is often the school of choice after a private island school. 14 years of A grades. Uncommon for a public school. Why? The Teachers are amazing! They truly care and their actions are the proof. There is a great deal of parent participation -- which I believe is HUGE! Most of the parents are very involved with their kids schooling. They volunteer, they go over their homework and correct it with them. They participate in parent teacher conferences. They read to them, etc... The school is not perfect, but it is by far the best public school in Vero Beach. 14 years of A grades WELL EARNED.
Even though I was only here for a short time, I have to say that Beachland Elementary school is a place that I will never forget. Teachers are very kind, caring, and amazing at what they do. The principal leads the school very well and students are welcoming. It is a wonderful setting for elementary school with a reasonable dresscode for public school, a normal amount of homework, and thirty minutes of recess everyday. The school also has a very diverse student body consisting of students with many backgrounds, talents, interests, and strengths. There are many clubs and activities in the school such as the art club, chess club, Spanish club, and "Shark Singers". . Beachland has a good reputation and has been acclaimed an "A" school for a reason. Beachland for sure is the best public elementary school in Indian River County!
Beachland was the best school my daughter has gone through. Now she is in 7th grade and still remembers all the fun she had. She and I loved all the teachers and staff. I think this is the best school out there!
Beachland continually receives 'A's' year after year! At this school, you don't have just the dedicated parents like those at a magnet school or private school. They have to pay or try to get into their school. We have underpriviledged kids bussed in. It shows our children the real world. But, even with these kids from rough backgrounds, we still score higher than most other surrounding schools, that your child has to be 'accepted' to attend. That means our teachers are stellar. They have to teach, as well as discipline, children from all sorts of backgrounds, not just the priviledged. Go sharks!!
What a great school. Our third grader recently told people she met that she has three of the best teachers in the world at Beachland. She has had Mrs. Jellie, Mrs. Harris and Mrs. Tippins. I am so thankful for these wonderful teachers. They have instilled a love of learning. The school has fostered a wonderful code of conduct. What a great school.
Beachland is a wonderful school! I have the pleasure of being an IRCS employee and a parent of this outstanding school!
Beachland Elementary is a wonderful school. The teachers are experienced, kind and teach character along with academics.
Beachland is an excellent elementary school with a decade of Florida State Grade A scoring. That is due to the overwhelming parent support coupled with a faculty and administration that is top notch. I have already been at this school for 6 years with my two oldest and have two more children in K and 1st now along with my 5th grader. The PTA has a strong involvement and supports the school tremendously along with parents who just 'do'. Supervision before and after school is more than adequate as long as the parent is aware of the drop off times. A great school with a great community feel.
In my opinion, this school is not what it is cracked up to be. If your child is struggling, then they expect you to help them at home without any guidance from the teacher or any supplementals. Also, in my opinion, safety is an issue when it comes to morning supervision for the kindergarten and first grade students.
They really care about our kids here, from the smart teachers and administrators through ALL staff members. It has earned an A for the past nine years, and it deserves it! The atmosphere is fun, friendly and respectful.
Wow, what can I say other than Beachland is wonderful. I have two children and this is my family 6th year as a shark and it has been a great educational experience. The teachers are wonderful and have been so pleased with how they care about the children beyond the classroom. Also, the PTA is very supportive of the students and faculty. Beachland is celebrating their 50th year serving the beachside (and beyond) community and has been a great asset to Vero Beach!
Carol Wilson is a caring respectful Prinipal. Her attitude can be seen in the teachers staff and students. We are so blessed to be able to have our child attend.
The academic programs at Beachland are exceptional. I cannot say enough about the teachers and the administration. As a parent I have always felt welcome from the day my children started K and 1st. The Odyssey program enhances the learning environment as well as proves the faculty is above standards. The Specials are impressive. Every specials teacher goes beyond a parent's expectation through incredibly thorough and interesting classroom instruction. When my children tell me about their days, they always include their special and are very excited to repeat the days learnings. The level of parent involvement is infectious. The PTA is supportive of Beachland and works hand in hand with the administration and faculty. The Beachland PTA is a great example of what can be accomplished with parent and community involvement. Beachland is an awesome educational arena for your child. Fins up Sharks!
I cannot say enough terrific things about this school.It is the Ritz Carlton of public school education.Terrific PTA!The administrators do a great job matching students to a learning environment that compliments their learning style.The teachers are the best of the best.They are creative in their lesson plans and they practice 'no child left behind'.Any observer can see enthusiasm and genuine caring.The campus is beautiful with canopy oaks and just the right mix of sun and shade.The buildings are older but well maintained.The staff is knowledgeable of what is going on in all areas.The school provides a nurturing environment that shelters students.My son attended K-5 and it was the best experience I could have. Thank you Beachland for setting the standard we now expect(others/should/follow.)
Overall the school is excellent. Our son attended from grades K-5. this school has been an A school for 8 consecutive years. They do emphasize the FCAT, but try to keep a balance about the required testing and the true art of learning, and the value of a balanced education. The teachers are accessible, and willing to work with your child if you work as a partner with them. The school has excellent support programs such as ESOL and developmental support. There is a lot of parent volunteerism that is welcomed and encouraged. This is a safe school with good kids.
