Beechwood School 4

This school is, like others, struggling with the new common core standards, among other things. This school used to be a very sweet school with excellent teachers; however, with the new curriculum, in depth report cards and building pressures, there is a lot of turnover recently. Seasoned teachers talk about the unreasonable leadership while teachers that are not tenured are too nervous about speaking up. Very sad. Still a good school comparatively, but there is too much change too fast and it is at the expense of the students.

Great teachers, programs, extracirricular activities & discipilinary action. Excellent communication with teachers about the class, your child & other programs in the school.

Outstanding school, above and beyond elementary schools in neighboring towns. Our tax money is carefully spent, and we have a full day kindergarten with very small classes, specials and enrichment as early as kindergarten. Nearby towns have grossly inflated taxes and enormous classes, lots of politics and 1/2 day kindergarten. The residents of mountainside are a close knit, caring community.
