I have been very pleased with the teachers and education my daughter has received this year attending Beazley. Her teacher communicates with me very well on a daily basis. However, the office staff is not very pleasant to be around. They do their jobs, but not very social personalities. My daughter is looking forward to the next school year with Beazley. Awesome teachers!

As a representative of the Beazley PTAC (Parent and Teacher Advisory Committee), I am writing to congratulate L.L. Beazley School on being selected as a 2013 National Blue Ribbon School. Beazley is one of only 7 public schools in Virginia that was awarded this distinction. Parents and students here at Beazley are so excited at achieving such an honor. This can only be accomplished through classroom instruction at its best, having high student expectations, and building relationships between teachers and students. We, as teachers, are fortunate to have the support and cooperation of our parents, and we, as parents, are appreciative of the hard work and encouragement of our teachers and the entire L.L. Beazley Staff. The office staff from the secretaries, guidance, and building administrators all go out of their way to help us make Beazley a wonderful place to attend, visit, and work. We all feel privileged and fortunate that we attend what we feel is the best school in Prince George County. Parents and teachers working together, L.L. Beazley PTAC

I'm so glad that they redistricted us to South Elementary. While we were at Beazley I had my concerns, but once my children moved to South I had something to finally compare and realized just how horrible Beazley was! The office staff could care less that you were there, much less to try to assist you. Their unfriendly demeanor made you feel very unwelcome. If a parent is unwelcome, then how must the poor children feel! Couldn't be happier that we moved to South!!!

Although everyone is entitled to their opinion I just want to say I adore the new A.P. It is nice to see someone who smiles and at least appears to like her job. She is always professional and I am at the school quite frequently --I see her giving more hugs than I would...do you hug your child at home? However, the office staff could be a little friendlier. And does the guidance counselor ever offer any guidance?

What happened to the other lady assistant principal? I liked her better than the one that's there now! The other one always hugged my kid and spent time with her. I miss her! This one...attitude...ugh!

I agree the office staff at Beazley truly needs to take professionalism 101 again! They are rude in person and over the phone! Over all I love the Prince George County Public school system. I don't particulary enjoy my son attending an old out dated open campus school. Beazley and Walton are open campus schools and this makes it difficult to combat colds during the winter months or rainy days! This year as been a challange do to my son having a sub for several months but overall I am able to openly communicate my concerns with his teacher and she is usually pretty good with responding.

We were very pleased with the school and teachers during our short 1.5 years at L.L. Beazley. My child's teachers were very nice and friendly to students and parents. They encouraged parent communication and held the student responsible for their academic success as well. I was not very happy with the amount of homework however. There would be many tearful nights by my child over an hour or two of homework. I'm not sure if they still do that much homework, but then again it depends on the student as well. Regardless of homework, my child excelled in her grades and since we've moved to another state, she continues to excel as she enters higher grades.

Beazley is the best school ever! My family and I felt so welcomed and supported from the very beginning when it came to the needs of our children. I must say they went over and above in assisting us with the enrollment process in the office to selecting the teacher that was the best fit for our child, and the overwhelming support and dedication of the classroom teachers, even the campus is one of the most beautiful and well manicured as compared to the numerous schools our children have attended over the years. It is obvious the entire Beazley family has great pride in their school.

As a teacher here at Beazley, I take offense to the assistant principal comment. The administration at Beazley is "top-notch"! Both the principal and assistant principal establish an open door policy and support the parents, students and the teachers to the fullest! Leadership reflects attitude! Here at Beazley we have outstanding test scores, motivated teachers, and happy students! Without the direction and supervision of our adminstration, we couldn't provide the students a safe and caring environment that allows our students to thrive.. I wouldn't teach anywhere else!

While there is alot of good things to talk about at this school, I must say the principal is so wonderful. I see no use for the assistant principal.

I love Beazley. I have 2 kids at the school and couldn't be happier. They are super military friendly and understand our special circumstances. The administrators are very friendly and they have great teachers! I couldn't have been happier with a school. They welcome parent involvement and just have a great program all around.

Great school! Wonderful teachers! My kids love their teachers and you know what they say...happy kids makes for a happy mom! As a parent, I appreciate being able to speak directly with one of the principals when I have a concern. That's not always been my experience.

We, too, are a military family and we checked out the county website before we moved to the area to check out the elementary schools. All of the schools had good ratings, but word-of-mouth told us to go with Beazley. We did and we couldn't be happier. I have three kids that go to school there and all were accepted and nurtured (that's not always been our experience). J. and M.

We love Beazley! This school is outstanding. We are a military family and have had the experience of being at several other elementary schools nationwide. We are so impressed with this school. The children and parents are treated with so much respect. The children are given a top notch education while they are having fun!

Sadly, we left Virginia last year but my daughter attended L.L. Beazley for 1st through 3rd grade. Of all the schools she has attended, there is by far NO BETTER SCHOOL!!! The teachers are awesome. The staff is amazing. They keep you informed about your childs progress and really care about what they do. We are a military family and moved to PG because of the reviews we saw on this site.....It definitely lived up to my expectations...I highly recommend this school!!!
