I am highly disappointed with this school. You send your child to a school that you're zoned to and place their care and educational needs in their hands and you trust that they are professionals and will care/educate accordingly. Not this administration. The principals are all unprofessional. They cater to only a "certain" few. Unless you are a lawyer or rich enough to higher one, they don't fear addressing you in any way. They're quick to discipline a student even if the student is innocent, rather than taking the opportunity to EDUCATE them. There are no activities with parent involvement. No international night, dances, plays, etc. Coming from a different state I found this school to be disappointing in every aspect. I feel very bad for all of the children attending. The bullying is horrible. Staff is a hit or miss. There's a couple of good teachers, but they're their own one-man-band as they have HORRIBLE leadership....and don't try to go to the person above the principal, it's a big "boys club". The politics will leave you feeling helpless and the focus will never be to care/educate your child. Trust me. If you're zoned here...just try and MOVE for your sake.Try Lake Ridge!

Im an normal 8th grader in 2013-2014 this school has some not caring teachers the kids who actually try to do their work.There is also a lot of bullying and the staff members and teachers don't try to help the students learn except for some teachers like Mrs.Sharova,Mr Turner, and Ms.Holly

I have had many, many bad experiences with this school. The lastest one being a suspension for the last day of school. Suppoedly my son was walking across the street and wasnt paying attention and almost got hit by a car in the morning. The staff did not call me to let me know. My son had to tell me and I called up there to find out what was going on and was told the assistant principal who suspended him has left for the day and noone else knew what was going on! Absolutely horrible! They told me they did not contact me this morning because they were busy with graduation. Wow. I am actually speechless. I will be un enrolling my child for next yer.....

I too had heard of Beville's reputation prior to enrolling my daughter into the IB program last year but after speaking with her counselor my husband & I decided to give it try. She is now a 7th grader and has consistently made the AB honor roll every quarter since her 6th grade year. Although she is maintaining those grades, her passion and interest in certain subjects has diminished quite a bit. I definitely echo the sentiments of those regarding the lack of respect shown to parents and students by "certain" administrative staff. When parents enter the front office, they are often given a "cool" reception. Maybe they should learn a thing or two about "customer service" from the staff at CD Hylton High School. Also beware, the Principal is very aggressive, and not in a good way. :)

We did not have a good expierience at this school. It took principle and teachers quite awhile to get back to us anytime we would call and that is just not acceptable. Also, there was not very good, organized communication to parents.

The International Bacculerate Program provides students with a good cirriculum and can help get your child into a good college.The school itself isn't bad it's just the bad students that inhabit it. Beville Middle could use some money therefore students do not go on field trips very often and events are limited. Overall I would give this school a 6.5 out of 10. Also the band has improved this year with the help of the new band instructor Timothy Turner.


Posted March 11, 2011

This school had potential but has a non caring principal who belittles the students, parents and staff. The IB program is great if you can get in it. The best teachers left and students seem unhappy there.

My daughter is in the IBMYP and I can notably see that she is having a distinguished education. Most important, she is happy there and getting ready for life!

My son is in the IBMYP at Beville. It has been a great preparation for high school and beyond. The teachers are tough and fair. While the school has some problems, we haven't had any problems with our son being bullied or pushed around. I would highly recommend this school if your child is gifted or wants to excel.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Virginia used the Standards of Learning (SOL) tests to assess students in reading and math in grades 3 through 8, writing in grades 5 and 8, and science in grades in 3, 5 and 8. The SOL tests are standards-based, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Virginia. The goal is for all students to pass the tests.
