The Beals families are very supportive of the classroom teachers and principal efforts to educate every single child that walks in the school.. Beals has a great number of students from various ethnicities and backgrounds, both international and local. I am currently a teacher in another elementary school that I love. I had the opportunity to teach at Beals previously and the highly structured leadership is greatly appreciated and always responsive to students, parents and community. 5 stars-Go Beals

My little girl is in the Pre-k Class with Ms. Weishapl as well and is very happy there. She loves her teachers. Every time I ask her what she learned today she says "I forgot" which is a little concerning but is probably a pretty normal answer for a 4 year old. Her favorite thing to do is art and I would have to say her art skills have really come a long way in just a few months.

I absolutely loved the Pre-K program, Mrs. Weishapl was wonderful, I will go out of my way to try to get all my children this same experience.
