Beveridge is a fantastic school with a diverse student body and students can choose a major in either performing arts or international studies. Their service learning program was on the news a little while ago when the teacher won a major award. Their science class was outside flying a plane when I was walking my dog. Omaha's best kept secret!

Beveridge is amazing! Dual-language, visual and performing arts and international studies. The art department does many community art projects and invites artists often to work with students.

I miss beveridge SOOOO much. My 2 years at beveridge were the best!! Every theacher is amazing and willing 2 do what ever it takes for you 2 succed in school. Everyone is so nice and even though there might be people who tease you. There are many other people around 2 be friends with. The last day is the worst and most emotional day of the year because your leaving all of your friends behind. :(

I am an 8th grader at Beveridge and I have had wonderful experiences there. I went to Beveridge even when not a lot of people I knew went there and it was easy to make friends and enjoy myself there. The teachers are wonderful and fair to all. It is the only school if you plan to be succeful in band. The band teachers, Mr. Mickey and Mr. Edward, are truly the best in Omaha. Even my other friends who attend different middle schools can not deny there excellence. Because of them, I am at a high school level. They also work at Burke and the kids there sound as good, if not better, than bands in universities. The other teachers of Beveridge are also exceptional and notable. Beveridge also has many activities for everybody to join. All-in-all, I loved being at Beveridge and there's a limiit on here, I'm done.

I attend this school, and even I can pick up that the teachers are great, and the diversity and ethnic heritage are amazing and I'm glad to be a part of it.

I think that the teachers are wonderful. From what I know, all of the students strive to become great leaders with school activities. I am also very happy that this school has kept its magnet status throughout the years. The arts program is especially wonderful, and drama is a great class with a great teacher.

This middle school is acceptable to good in this regard. There is an effort made by the principle in this area. In another school in this district where an older son attended this more enlightened attitude did not prevail and he suffered for it. Children in public schools should have the opportunity to succeed provided by teachers who are unbiased as to their abilities and potential. Nurses and doctors can't treat people individually based on their ethnic background and teachers should have no hint of this either.
