Beaumont is not a terrible school. The worst part about it is that most of the students are not very motivated to learn. Sometimes it takes a lot of skill and finesse for teachers to get students to settle down and get to work. However, this school is not overly dangerous and chaotic. Additionally, there are some extremely intelligent and dedicated teachers there who are trying their hardest to teach disadvantaged kids and teaching creative, invigorating lessons. Any kid who is truly motivated and somewhat independent could get an excellent education at Beaumont.
Beaumont High School is by far one of the best schools in St. Louis. It offers a wide range of academic programs from D.R.E.A.M.S. to our library reading club. Beaumont also has a variety of extracurricular programs from Young Gentle Men's club to our dance team. Beaumont also has a fantastic Army JROTC program that teaches student to achieve in life. Over all Beaumont is an excellent school and any student should be proud to be apart of something as great as Beaumont High School.
I went to Beaumont all 4 years. This School is not a bad school compared to all of the other city high schools.The only problem that I have with this school is that they need more activies for the kids to keep them out of trouble.They also have Finance Academy for kids to learn about stocks,bonds etc.which is very good for our children.
My daughter is a Junior at Beaumont and she has attended there since her Freshman year. The school is not perfect, but what school in St. Louis is? The lack of funds shows in the attitude of students and staff all over the city. Beaumont is certainly not the best but it is not the worst by no means.
This school had gone from good to bad in a matter of years. Before, when someone said that he/she was a student of Beaumont high school it was some pride in the statement. Nowadays, Beaumont is commonly referred to as an alternative school that inhibits trouble-making students. I will not stereotype and say that all of the students are like this but being around such students four years of their life can create such a label. Presently, their graduation rate is in plain words pitiful.
