I forgot to add that the office staff; Dale Christianson, Principal; Chris Hyrkas, Secretary; and Mary the nurse, are extremely in tune with the needs of the students, and represent Becker Primary well. Our experience has been very positive.

Extracurricular activities are fantastic, but I found the teachers are just average.

My son changed schools from Big Lake school to Becker school in K, when my son came to your school did not know how to spell his full name and with in less then one month my son now knows how to spell his name. Lien the special ed teacher is great with my son, she takes time with him and removes him from class as needed and is very great teacher including this K teacher she is great with my son.

I am thrilled with the level of care given at Becker Primary! It seems to me that the teachers truly care about the students. When my child had trouble, we were told about it right away and kept up to date as what we could try next. I appreciate this school!

Principal of this school provides very poor leadership and does not respond to parent issues in a professional and timely manner.

I have two children that have attended Becker Primary & have had nothing but great experiences! The staff & teachers are definately there for the parents & the children. I have founs that the teachers at Becker Primary are young & energetic & love parental involvment which there happens to be alot of in Becker. It is a very family orientated community. The class sizes are kept to a minimum to ensure that each child gets what they need on a daily basis. I would reccomend this school & community to anyone!

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

Oops! We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Public and charter school test scores for most states come from the state Department of Education. The most common reasons we might not have this data are either that not enough students took the test or that the school was recently opened, and its scores have not yet been reported.
