I as a parent really care about education and feel that this schools doing more than educating our children... Most people say that the schools are really bad east of the River, but this is not true, Beers ES is the best Hidden Gem in SE DC. I am loving the academics and staff at the school and hope that all children can be educated and nurtured in the same manner.
A DC STEM gem! Principal Payton is a veteran educator with a vision and a mission. Through her leadership, Beers has soared. Teacher turnover is low....practically non-existent and with a newly modernized building, Beers is truly headed in the right direction. Due to its success over recent years, there is a greater interest from Hillcrest families and others in the community, which will definitely attract even more high quality, high performing students. The biggest issue at Beers is the lack of parental involvement but that too is turning around. Get in while you can!
This school is great! great! great!!!! cANT WAIT FOR MY DAUGHTER TO ATTEND THIS YEAR!!!
1 word that will sum up everthing you would look for when choosing the right school for your child... AWSOME! Teacher.... AWSOME, Principal.... AWSOME, leaning/overall testing..... AWSOME! There are very few schools in this particular school district that will provide the highest quality education for your child, and Anne Beers ranks best. At the end of the day.... numbers don't lie, check their resume.
My child is not a student here as of yet, but I pray he gets in. He has attended during the summer and I love the school. There is a pleasant atmosphere, the children and staff from Beers are respectable and well mannered.
I am really loving my children School. The staff is awesome and always professional, the teachers are very resourceful and the principal has the best interest for the children. She is the best.. Not to mention there were 2 teacher of the years from Beers ES one 3rd grade and one 5th grade teacher. Beers is the best hidden Gem East of the River...
In the 3 years that my child has attended Anne Beers, I have found the principle and staff to be very accomodating, responsive and caring to my child and my needs. A large percentage of the parents are hands on and interactive the with the teachers to assist with their child's learning process. I 've had not problem with the Principle nor the teachers returining my phone calls. Overall having my child at Anne Beers give me a since of comfort knowning that she will be looked after physcally and educationally
Beers has the NASA Program, it is a STEM School, they are a SAM school,how great is that! The teachers really care and work hard to make sure that the children get it. The best part is that many of the staff have had their own children at Beers, what a testiment. They have a great principal finally.
Anne Beers is a magnificient school. The principal and teachers work hard. The teachers all work together. Anne Beers is a family school. They even have community people who volunteer in the school. All of this good stuff is because of the new principal that we got in 2006. The building is much nicer and the staff work hard. They really care about the children and push them hard. Now maybe Beers will get back to where it use to be.
There are no current activities for the musically inclined student. My experiences with Beers Elem. have been horrible. The kids are rude and bullies. They have a tendency to disrespect each other and continuously 'assault' each other. I have two children attending this school and the coaches for the cheerleaders, has 'accidently' forgot to bring my children to me. Basically, my oldest child was left at an Elementary School in Washington, DC without supervision. Imagine that! What type of staff does this principal hire or allow to volunteer. Are the children really safe at Anne Beers? Does the staff really care about these kids? Or are they just doing enough to get their paychecks? The principal doesn't return phone calls, doesn't follow-up for scheduled appointments, and in the time of crisis - he ignores the parents needs and feelings. I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND THIS SCHOOL!
