I graduated in '05 and thought that I was doing fine until I moved away and actually saw what other schools were like, beggs is a fine place to play football and not much else. Students are apathetic. As for performing arts forget about it. Had I the opportunity to go back and change schools I would willingly.
I graduated in 1986 from this school and was very prepaired for college. I would say that the teachers, courses, administration and the support of the community of the school is outstanding. Better than anyone I met while attending college and while following my child through his education at Beggs.
While attending school at Beggs High School I felt like my teachers respected me and wanted me to be successful in my educational endeavors. However, once I got to college I found out how very unprepared for college I was. Beggs offered courses that they say are AP courses or accelerated. But these courses did nothing for me in college. I was behind and struggling. The accelerated courses were just not relevant to the college classroom. All other things considered including extracurricular activites, for a small town they do offer a wide variety of highly supported sports, arts, and organizational activities.
