I agree, Amelia is a great school. The facility itself needs improvement. However, the teachers are wonderful. I have had two children in school at Amelia and it has been a rewarding experience.

Amelia has a good mix of Beaumonters. The teachers and staff are experienced. If you participate, even just a little...your time with them is so much better. Just dropping in to read to kids after school...its worth it!
