Beach High School1

Beach High School; It's one of the worst school I've ever been too in my entire life, and It has not taken me long to realize that as I have only been here for about 2 months. It's completely unorganized, and what I mean by that is- They tend to assume that students will just KNOW they've changed the schedule without letting them know a day or so before they do so. Now, let's talk about my learning experience here. On a good day -which is maybe 2 days of every 5- the teacher can actually teach without being interrupted by the horrible behavior of students. Let me just point out that the teachers are good people, and they're good at their job- that's not the issue with most of the teachers. They're ARE some teacher -however- that can't teach, because they'd rather act more childish than the students themselves. I like teachers with a little sense of humor, but this school has taken it too far. NOW, let's talk about the transportation -and I know the school has little control over this. My bus is late more often than not, and I mean 20 to 30 minutes late or more, resulting in late arrivals to class. I know it's free education, but where's the education?
This school is like sending my child to war everyday. It is in a horrible neighborhood. Staff is rude, students are violent. Communication with parents is nil. The building is beautiful and new. But if you put lipstick on a pig, it is still a pig!
A.E. Beach High School is not a good school at all. All principal is a big lier he says he going to do something and he not does it. I recommend no one send their child there.The school is full of drama and violence do not send no one there.I hate the school because I go there now class of 2017 terrible school.
Beach is a wonderful school! The teachers work with the students to make sure we understand what were doing, although our behavior may be a little off and not perfect, our academics make up for all we lack in, we pass our tests very well, people just overlook all of the positive for the negative.
I went to this school!!! As a parent, I would never let my child go to this school. The education was poor although I gradurated from this place. Most of the people who gradurated from Beach with me was on the honors list and still had to take remedial classes in college. This is a horrible school. If you are looking for a school to prepare you for college, try else where!!!
My son went to Beach when there was a Medical Magnet program. Though the rest of the classes were mediacre, the core medically oriented ones were excellent. The math was poor, but he graduated with Pharmacy Tech diploma as well. Instead of using this as a base to improve the overall standard of education there, 'someone' decided to do away with the Magnet Program there, and the small feather in it's cap was blown in the wind, never to return.
The Beach Institute still exist as a museum. Beach High was built in the 1950s. These are two different schools in two different locations. Regardless this school is abysmal. As a previous poster responded, students are not held accountable by administrators. But this is true for most schools in Savannah. Teachers get little support and are made to do hours of duty daily
