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!
I have two daughters in the 2nd grade at beecher. They have been there since pre-k. The teachers are very caring, knowledgeable, understanding and dedicated. The staff really believes in making all children reach their fullest potential. I highly recommend beecher. Get on board the beecher success express!
