Beveridge's Magnet School theme is a great premise, however, it does not outweigh the amount of bullying that goes on in this school. I loved that my daughter got to declare a major in middle school and all of the amazing opportunities that are offered for free by professionals in the local community. Unfortunately, the administration has no plan to prevent, avert, or dissuade bullying. When confronted with these types of situations, they claim that they weren't aware that it was big deal. My daughter had a tough time making and keeping friends. The staff is hit or miss. Some are wonderful and others are unprofessional at best. In speaking with other parents, I have found that they claim to have similar experiences and some had even worse stories than I have. Many have claimed that teachers and counselors treat them unjustly. I have witnessed this myself and I had to have my daughter's schedule altered three times just to get a schedule where she wasn't being treated unfairly by teachers or bullied inside the classroom by other students. This school has such great potential, but is in need of a rotation in the administration department.
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!
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. :(

When they want us to donate money they do stuff to encourage us to donate. Like rite now if we donate enough money our principal will get ducktaped to a wall!!! well i love beveridge nd im sad this is my last year there.
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.
