The staff and leadership at Beverly Elementary is beyond exceptional. I feel privileged that my son has been able to attend this amazing school since kindergarten. He just started 5th grade there this year. Elizabeth Kirby, principal of Beverly Elementary, is a true leader. She sets high standards and expectations for her staff and the children and helps them to succeed. She is dedicated and tireless in her commitment to education. Ms. Kirby hires the best teachers I've ever had the pleasure of meeting. They are passionate about their role in society as educators. I've never had one concern about leaving my son in their care. He loves going to school and has grown tremendously over the years. They also do an amazing job of disciplining when necessary. With a school full of children age 12 and under there's no doubt that there will be children who attend the school who have disciplinary issues. These teachers are consistent and very communicative if/when they are having any issues with my son. Together we have been able to devise plans over the years that work to correct the issues. I applaud these educators!!!

This school seems to teach to standardized testing rather than having a paradigm of teaching the students to learn. A teacher told me that the students even out by 2nd grade. To prepare for the first standardized tests in the 3rd grade, the talented students receive less attention and the lowest performing students received the most attention in order to pass the testing. Very disappointing for a school that "seems" to be good if statistics are to believed.

As a former student at this school I am very familiar with the teachers and principal and I can say they have prepared me for everything in the future.I would like to thank the teachers for being with me the whole time and encouraging me. I am know I am very fortunate to have experienced this journey and would like to thank everyone who was there for me! p.s. A big shoutout to Ms.Bohannon (Go Mavs )

(Continued) A separate incident occurred when my son fell and hit his head on the concrete after being made to run laps in the school parking lot during P.E. class, and no one bothered to call and tell me. Instead I picked my child up to find him with a bleeding gash on his forehead!! Since moving my child to a different classroom the school year has been slightly better, but this school has already tarnished my former good thoughts from previous years. If your child is lucky enough to get a good teacher, then you will have a great experience with this school. If not, your are in for a terrible year of nitpicking and no educating. Instead, you will be constantly be bombarded with petty calls/emails and constantly scheduling conferences with the teacher, principal and/or counselor. Needless to say I will be moving my child after this school year. Do not send your child here unless you have unlimited time to spend at the school monitoring whether your child is being treated fairly or with unfairness and predjudice.

Our experience was great the first two years. This year has been a disaster. If you like constantly being bombarded with calls/emails every time your child so much as breathes too loudly or teachers that physically and emotionally harm your children then this is the school for you! We have gone through two teachers this year because the first felt compelled to jerk my son by his harm and tell him to leave her classroom because she didn't want to look at his face! I got neither a call nor text after this incident though?? After speaking with the principal this particular teacher merely received a verbal reprimand. Even though my child was immediately moved to another classroom, it still frightens me that a person who is responsible for caring for small children thought is was okay to put her hands on a 7 year old. If your are a working-class parent that cannot spend every waking minute at school making sure your child is not in harms way, BEWARE! This could happen to your child as well.

I love Beverly Elementary because both of my kids learned 'how to learn' and were surrounded by teachers who cared about them as people instead of a number.

My children attend Beverly Elementary, and I have been thrilled with their education! The teachers go above and beyond to get to know each student's academic strengths and develop any areas of concern through individualized instruction. The entire school also encourages positive character development such as honor, integrity, courage, compassion, and determination. I truly feel Beverly is a partner in my raising well-rounded children.

She keeps this great school up and running! She deserves that Blue Ribbon! Keep it up!

As a grandparent of two Beverly students (grades 1 and 4) I believe that they are getting the absolutely best education available in Texas. The leadership and teaching staff are to be commended for the outstanding commitment to ensuring success for each student, and for ensuring that important connection with each home. Sandra K.

We have had children at Beverly Elementary for the last 7 years, and though we have not been very active with the volunteers and PTA (because we work)we have been at the school enough to see that it is very evident that the teachers and staff ALL care about ALL of the children. Yes, they do have high expectations, but they employ those expectations to all of their students. I have seen many parents that feel their child should be the exception to the rule and do not want their child held to the same standards. In today's world, I am grateful that our children are getting a quality education, not just for the elementary years, but to help prepare them for life. Keep it up Beverly!

We moved to this neighborhood because we had heard good things about Beverly. If you happen to get a good teacher the year goes by beautifully, but if you get a teacher that does not like your child, or is too inexperienced to run a classroom with discipline then the principal is not much help. We have had two great years at Beverly and two horrible years at Beverly...I hope we have another Great year this year. My only suggestion for new parents would be to monitor the teachers and keep up with them to make sure your child is being treated fairly and without prejudice.

Beverly is a wonderful school with excellent programs. From gifted and talented to special education, all of the staff I have observed are professional, caring, and truly love working with my child. I am very pleased with this school.
