Beaver Creek is a great school with excellent teachers and staff! There are so many ways for students to learn and grow inside and out of the classroom, many opportunities for parents and students to be involved and help others. The principal and teachers are very committed to the education of our children and it shows! We are proud to be a Beaver Creek Family!

I am very proud to be a parent of Beaver Creek students. The teachers are very kind and caring and love to teach. They are smart and well equipped to do their job. The principal has always addressed my concerns quickly and fairly (keep in mind, sometimes it is your kid that did something wrong:(). Dr Lawless works tirelessly to create a well run environment. The sense of community that our family feels from Beaver Creek is enormous and really makes getting involved in our children's education fun. In addition, the PTO ROCKS!

Beaver Creek is an excellent school filled with dedicated, positive, motivated teachers, staff and students. I am a proud parent and volunteer at Beaver Creek and thrilled that my 3 children are able to receive a quality public education. There are numerous opportunities for parents to be involved in their child's education and classroom activities, as well as opportunities for the children to grow and foster their individual interests and talents. As a parent of a child with special needs and children in the regular classroom, I have always felt heard and validated in all of my concerns or questions surrounding my children. I highly recommend Beaver Creek.

My child had difficulty reading and my concerns were totally blown off. He got no help at all. Not a great school if your child has any learning problems. They need a qualified reading specialist.

I am stating unsatisfactory due to the out of touch, self centered principle. The teachers are great minus very few. This school could be great again if the principle is dismissed and the redistricting does not impact the social economics of the school which as currently presented will. All elementary schools seem to have learning support issues unfortunately.

I couldn't be happier with the education and support my children receved at Beaver Creek. The curriculum is top notch and many programs focus on molding a child to be well rounded. On any issues that arose both the guidance and the principal were right on top of itand worked with us. There are many, many additional activites for students to explore their talents: video and editing club, art club, band, talent show...the list goes on. A+

completely dissatissifed with the support we have received at Beaver Creek, my child has a learning disability and we have had to fight for everything we have received. I agree with the other parent who wrot e that the principal is unapproachable. They fight you for any support your child is entitled to, know your rights.

My child had many problems with teacher and the principal because the school did not meet my child's needs. All the experienced teachers left. The principal is not involved and is not approachable. All they care about is test scores, not the kids needs

Beaver Creek focuses on educating the whole child. They offer a wide variety of before school and after school activities such as 'It Takes a Village', 'Video Editing', 'Band', and 'Intramurals.' They have hard working, caring teachers and support staff. The students excel academically and are caring and friendly. There are many opportunities for parent involvement. The PTO is very active and supportive.

Do not judge a school by it's test scores! It is easy to spoon feed a child input for a test however, does not mean they are learning. I am not satisfied with the education provided at Beaver Creek. there is much to be desired with the cooperation between the teacher and the parent. The longer I am involved with Beaver Creek The more I grow to dislike it!

Excellent school. The teachers focus on each individual student. The children are taught not only the 'Three R's' but how to be a productive citizen and how to respect others. Bullying is tackled from day one. Children are encouraged to operate outside of comfort zones in moving ahead in reading and math. No one is pushed ever. Wonderful teachers have been experienced by us in K, 1st and 2nd! We love BC!
