i transferred my kid to this school and i think it was a big mistake. i am really debating on pulling my kid out and driving the 12 one way trip to send her back to her old school. Beverly is very unorganized and the teacher she has had this year has been horrible. this teacher has singled out my kid and a few others from what i have been hearing from the other moms. this teacher seems nice and helpful to your face but the notes and letters that come home are very rude and disrespectful. i understand that moving schools is a big thing for kids but my kid has been having problems since the first day and i have tried to put her on the 504 plan for some extra help (they wont give kids that little extra help they need unless on a 504 plan) and almost 6 months later (and calling many times) i am still waiting for it to be approved . i am very unhappy with this school and the teachers and staff ...i dont even want to give it any stars but it wont let me go on with out putting atleast one

Back when all of these reviews were written, Beverly was a very nice school...since it has gone k-8 it has diminished greatly. More bullying that goes unanswered, lack of staffing and concern to address individual student needs, and very uncoordinated communication. Quite a shame really.

Have grandson who is AD/HD that attends this school. Having trouble with teacher who will not communicate with the mother to help child. Very frustrating for us all. if doesn't improve before first half of year, will probably take him out and home school.

My children receive a first-rate education at this Toledo Public School. The principal, teachers and support staff work hand-in-hand with parents to provide a nurturing learning environment for children. The school is socioeconomically and racially diverse which is a positive not found in most suburban schools. The surrounding neighborhood is friendly and safe allowing most children to walk to school. The district also provides an excellent gifted education program for 3-6 graders who qualify.

Nestled in a beautiful neighborhood, Beverly Elementary is the BEST school inside or outside of Toledo city limits! Dedicated teachers and staff work together with involved parents, community businesses and civic leaders to provide outstanding education! Even with the many educational choices this area has to offer, Beverly is a wonderful school that helps children to grow!

Beverly is the premier elementary school in the Toledo Public School district. The students consistently achieve year after year. Beverly has the most experienced staff in the district. The staff, teachers, parents, and students work together to create and educational environment that excels. Parental involvement is extremely high with thousands of volunteer hours given each year. The Beverly PTO is very active and makes sure the staff and students get the educational items needed to maintain the high standards in the classrooms. This is a great neighborhood elementary school.

About the tests


In 2010-2011, the Ohio Department of Education used the Value-Added Measure to show how much growth students made on the Ohio Achievement Test since the last school year. The state expects that student test scores will show an average year's worth of growth compared to test scores from the previous year. Ohio's Value-Added Measure is not the same as Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP), a federal measure which uses different criteria.

About the tests


Ohio uses the Performance Index to provide an overall indication of how well students perform on its standardized tests each year. The Performance Index scores are based upon how well each student does on all tested subjects in grades 3 through 8 and 10. Schools and districts earn anywhere from 1.2 points for each student scoring at the advanced level to zero points for each untested student. The Performance Index ranges between 0 and 120, with 100 as the statewide goal for all students.

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.
