This is a great school locating in a very nice neighborhood. Diversity is not that much. But kids are nice and well educated.

Excellent education. Ethnic diversity of student body increasing. Need some diversity in the administrative staff, however.


Posted October 4, 2007

Beaumont is as close to a perfect school as you can imagine: great environment, great teachers, great students, and great parents. Located in an affluent neighborhood, many of the parents are higher educated and eager to pass high academic expectations down to their children. Students in language arts and math classes are usually grouped according to their abilities as to allow them to move at their own pace. As early as second grade, one of the math classes will be working one grade above level. Art, music, physical education, and foreign language are all given excellent exposure. Children at Beaumont are very well behaved and good natured. *Beaumont s hidden gem is their Challenge program offered to high IQ students. This program teaches kids critical thinking skills and gives the students exposure to things they wouldn t normally have a chance for. Great program but unfortunately it gets downplayed

There is absolutely no diversity at this school. I also think that the children are being taught to the test. My children were at Beaumont and they left after two months. They are in independent schools and are behind their classmates. The school could work for some, but if interested in independent creative thought, that respects a multitude of cultures and diversity...don't look at that school.

About the tests


In 2011-2012 Pennsylvania used the Pennsylvania System of State Assessments (PSSA) to test students in grades 3 through 8 and 11 in math and reading, in grades 5, 8 and 11 in writing, and in grades 4, 8 and 11 in science. The results for reading, writing, science and math are displayed on GreatSchools profiles. The PSSA is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Pennsylvania. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the test.
