As the parent of a son who attends Beecher Hill, my wife and I recently had the pleasure of meeting with the school Principal Ms. Jones, Mr. Piper and my sons first grade teacher Ms. Amos for the first time. I found each of them to be very warm, cordial and professional. During our visit each of them exhibited a genuine concern over my sons welfare and educational future. My wife and I were able to sit in our sons first grade classroom with Mrs. Amos and discuss various issues our son presents in the classroom environment and discussed initatives and things we could do to assist her with meeting our sons educational needs. In closing we were able to leave Beecher Hill Elementary School with the confidence and peace of mind all parents should have in their child's school. I am convinced that my sons educational future is in good hands and we look forward to working very closely with the Principal and Staff. We would also like to wish all the Staff at Beecher Hill a Wonderful and very Happy Thanksgiving Holiday. God Bless You All The Mitchell Family.

Beecher Hills is not all of what it is proclaimed to be...I don't like the principal or the assistant principal's attitude. .A couple of the teachers are very unprofessional ..Bad experience

After reading the great reviews on this school, I am so, so disappointed in what we've encountered. The after school pick up area, the principal's horrible attitude, and complete lack of organization and internal communication is a complete joke. My hope is these issues can be resolved and the rest of the school year goes much smoother.

After being away from Beecher Hills for 1 year I decided to put both my girls back in the school. Unfortunately My oldest daughter has learning disabilities they cannot accommodate. However, my youngest is currently in 2nd grade and thriving. A few staff members have changed, but they are still a wonderful group of people who put education and children first.

My third grandchild is in Pre-K at Beecher Hills, following behind an older brother and sister. I am very pleased with the academics and the care and concern the faculty and staff exhibit for the kids. My area of concern is the school lunch. Beecher does not prepare food on-site. Both of my grandkids often don't eat their lunch because the food was too cold. Another area of concern is that there is not enough opportunity for physical activity. The kids come out of the classrooms at 2:30 displaying so much energy you know they have been saving all day.

Both my daughters attended Beecher Hills and I think the school is the best kept secret in Atlanta. For at least the past eight years, the school has exceeded its academic expectations and the parents are incredibly involved and supportive of school activities. I would recommend Beecher Hills to any parent seeking a small classroom environment with commited educators who will work WITH families to enhance your child's education.

My family love Beecher Hills. My husband and I are very proud of our girls. We have one in Kindergarten and one in Pre-K. The teachers and parents are wonderful. Beecher Hills is very similar to a private school without the high cost of tuition. Keep up the good work........Parents let keep spreading the word about our great school!

This is an excellent school with a dedicated principal and staff. The students beginning in 3rd grade move to their teachers like in Junior High and have a math teacher, a different language arts teacher, Spanish, social studies, music, art, and PE teachers. There is a strings and band program. In addition, there are dance and cheer leading groups. Much more cultural and sports activities take place at this special school. Although the work load is great and challenging, it pays off at the end because the students learn so much from the course content, teaching quality and hands on, project based learning. It's a lot of work to study, complete projects, take exams and more from the academic core, but the children become prepared, competitive academically and socially. My children are straight A students and many children exceed the state CRCTS. Minimal disciplinary problems. I Highly recommended Beecher.

As a volunteer reader this year, I have been very dissapointed in the lack of interest and respect the five of us have gotten from the school administration. There were at least 4 occasions when we showed up on our appointed day and time only to find out that the children were not available to listen to stories. We had checked in advance to make sure the times were available through the principal. He reassured us the days and times were good. When we arrived for our last reading of the school year, there was an awards program going on which even acknowledeged volunteers but not our group and of course we did not get to read to the children again. This occurring once or even twice might have been understandable but after that the staff should have put us on their calendar and notified us when to stay home.

I could not be more pleased with the education provided at Beecher Hills. My Kindergartener is reading, telling time, and learning the greater than/ less than value of numbers. The only complaint that I have is the behavior of the children. Most children learn the material and apply what they learn on everyday basics, but teachers are limited in how they can discipline a child. Teachers cannot raise their voices and they cannot spank children with rulers. The teachers just put the children in time out or send them to the principals office and frankly, that s not enough. We as parents need to realize that training and the foundation of productive students start at home, not when the child starts school.
