I recently moved to Marlton and with a child who requires a lot of extra help in the class room it amazed me how well he did with his transition. His teacher was amazing. He had a second teacher in his class room which was a huge help to him.

Hi, Beeler school has been amazing to our family. Both my daughter's teacher's, (K + 1st) were very helpful in accomadating my daughter's needs. She had a lot of anxiety, due to a special needs sister. My daughter is now in second grade and doing wonderful. They were strict, but so loving and sweet. I can't say enough about Beeler. They make you feel like family there, really! They did not want her to feel left behind, but they didn't let her test the boundries either. Both teacher's, balanced my daughter's needs perfectly. The communication is excellent. There was not one time, I felt I didn't get an answer from her teachers. I may not have liked it, but agreed with them. They are amazing at communication with parent's and that is key to raising a great student and child. Thank you Heln Beeler and staff

While the school environment is wonderful, as a parent and former teacher, I must say that the actual curricula leave something to be desired. The work is not challenging enough by far and the children rarely have enough homework in which to practice their skills. In this day and age, Science should be a major factor in school, Phonics should be taught, and Math skills built upon a foundation; instead at Beeler Science is see-sawing with Social Studies, children do not learn how to sound out unfamiliar words, ( a highly necessary skill), and Math is taught willy-nilly through 'spiraling' which does not work. Great atmosphere, lousy education!

I went through this school system growing up, and think it is of top quality. Children receive a wonderful education, there are numerous amounts of young and energetic teachers passionate about their job, and the area is safe and welcoming to children. Going through Beeler myself, it is absolutely a place to send your children to school.

When my husband and I decided to move the most important issue was the school district. I now have 2 children at Beeler and we couldn't have made a better choice! The teachers, staff, and the families at Beeler make me feel happy and safe sending my children off every day. What a wonderful school. I'm proud to say my children go to Beeler Elementary!

I cannot express in 150 words the joy I feel about my son being a part of Beeler Elem. The staff are extremely caring, wonderful people. Whenever I'm there, and I'm always there (!) it feels like being around good friends. I was recently (Oct. 2004) Chosen parent volunteer of the year at beeler, and it is always, always, always a treat (and so much fun) to be a part of anything Beeler offers. The day my son leaves 5th grade at Beeler will truly break my heart. Beeler rocks!

I cannot say enough about Evesham Twp. school system. My child is bipolar and has many issues. This district has bent over backwards to provide the best possible least restrictive environment and education for him. The teachers are amazing. The admin. is amazing. They cannot do enough for the children. Beyond words.

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.
