My son has been going to Beverly Elementary School for several years and the change in the school has been nothing short of amazing. The teachers are really great and go above and beyond to help the kids. The teachers also make themselves very accessible to parents. Everyone is friendly and really care about education. I'm glad my son goes to Beverly.

This is a good school with problem kids and parents. My child is doing great in this school her teachers have been so good at finding ways to challenge her. But there are some parents that don't understand how to discipline there kids and of course there not learning anything. It is so easy to blame the teacher when you don't take responsibility for your child. Teachers and schools are not babysitters and should not have to discipline so many bad kids because parents don't want to. If you don't want to be poor for the rest of your life kids let your teachers teach you and study. ADHD, Autism, and many many more are not walls and they can be overcome don't let your parents hold you back with there excuses for you. I know you can be better then them.

I am a parent of a child that goes to this school. In the past, the leadership of this school has been terrible but there is hope on the horizon as a new principal has been hired. As a parent who is involved in their child's school life, the 2010-2011 school year did not encourage participation from the parents. Also many programs (pre-k graduation, winter holiday concert, etc) were cut because the teachers didn't want to do them. My child, as well as many others, were deeply dissappointed that the new principal chose not to continue them. Teachers have not returned phone calls in the past and there doesn't seem to be a good chain of command at the school. I am sincerely hoping the new principal is able to change things around including getting the curriculum up to the standards of what it should be. The students' test scores have been consistently terrible and student behavior at the school leaves a lot to be desired. With help, I'm sure it can change - and I hope it does, otherwise parents will have no choice but to transfer their children to private school. I am hoping that as this is the principal's second year we won't be disappointed with where this school is headed.

I go to this school , and it has to be the worst school i been to so far. The teachers are so unorganize and the kids are a little bad. I don't really like this school cause it's pk-8 really and there's no clubs or any special activities the kids can do. I think when i was in Burlington i learned more than i do now and im in 8th grade. Were so far back on work. Thank You this is my last year. Sorry Beverly, but it stinks here.

My daughter attended the pre school program. She really enjoyed and i thought the pre school teachers were great! However, after pre school you must put your child into private school. I wonder where the tax dollars are going?

My children transferred from Westampton school district to Beverly City School a few years ago. I was surprised at how far behind the students were compared to my children. I had no other choice, but to keep my children in that school that was indeed the worse mistake of my life. My children took about 15 steps backwards. I am sorry, but Beverly Elementary School is way behind.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
