This school has great advanced programs such as MATH PATH II and advanced Language Arts and Science for students who need a greater challenge and excel in these subjects.

This is a great school with great teachers. My 3rd child is now attending this school. Both my older children were well prepared and successful in High School. My son was also on a 504 plan and I found both the teachers and counselors excellent to work with. They are a big part of why he is now successful in High School. All 3 of my kids love this school. I highly recommend it.

This school is pretty good. The curriculum is challenging. The lunch is really good, and the elective classes are fun. There have been some cases of bullying, except people are mean everywhere... I think that most of the teachers are good, only a few teachers don't really teach. This is a good school.

I have had two children go through Beaver Lake. Principal leadership is extremely weak, a lot of lip service given to things but no follow-through. Several extremely poor teachers, a few very, very good. Impersonal and I seriously doubt the principal ever knew who my children were. Overcrowded. A disappointment. The school is merely just OK.

I had several of my kids go to this school and I recommend that you send your kids somewhere else. This school has a serious problem with bullies and the school doesn't resolve the problem. At this school safety of a student is not their 1st priority, they only care about their own personal image. These people are so fake in so many ways, that it scares me. The office Secretary is awesome, but My friends child has a disability and this school made it real hard for them. kids with disabilities won't do well here and I hope they make some serious changes. I have to admit that this school has several after school clubs and activities that a great for students.

Warning to all parents enroll your child somewhere else. This school is bad! I have close relationships with a lot of parents that had their child rolled in Beaver Lake before, and they wish they could have send their kids to a different school. My child attended this school until I pulled her out.

As the mother of a student with ADD, a learning disability and on a 504 plan I encountered many obstacles communicating effectively with the Beaver Lake Middle School staff and administrators. I was very persistent with my communication with the counselors and psychologists which typically ended at crossroads. Upon requesting implementation of approved accommodations I was frequently advised that "we don't have the space or the resources available to accommodate your son." Meetings with administrators and teachers to discuss my son's progress continually were slanted in the direction of his failures rather than his successes. If I were to do MS all over again in this area, I would look further in to Pine Lake Middle School.

The Lunchroom staff are the best in the District. My child had special dietary needs and the Lunchroom staff worked with her all year to give her a great fulfilling variety of lunch choices. Teachers and mangaement her are awesome.

Great school. Very safe environment. Staff and teachers are accessible and friendly. Several after school clubs and activities are present. Good music (band/ochestra) program. Other electives are limited. Academic rigor is fine, but they can kick it up a notch because many students are sharp and could use additional opportunities.

My high schooler loved her experience at Beaver Lake and my current middle schooler echoes her opinion. The principal does a fantastic job of communicating with parents and I couldn't say enough great things about the staff. The teachers are passionate about their subjects and keep the students engaged and well prepared for high school. I just wish my high schooler could say the same things about Skyline and PCFC, but we feel very fortunate to have our Beaver Lake experience!

Beaver Lake Middle School is an excellent, first rate school. It has an excellent principal. The office staff are fantastic and BLMS has excellent counselers. Although Beaver Lake is overcrowded, that is not the school's fault; this occured as a result of people moving to Issaquah. Anyway, they are turning Pacific Cascade Freshman Campus into a middle school, which should solve that problem. My daughter absolutely loves this school, and my younger son (fourth grade) completely looks forward to attending BLMS.

This school has great academics and is very challenging without the plateau over-competitiveness. It is very over-crowded with a solution years off--they will covert the Pacific Cascade 9th grade campas in a few years to a middle school. Mostly, caring and compassionate teachers with the exception of a sub-par, cranky, disappointing teacher who should have retired years ago. Facilities are nice and well-maintained. The office staff are great! Some parents feel that the principal seems very interested in test scores above all else. Electives, especially foreign language, are lacking. Also, there are simply not enough honors/humanities plus classes for those who meet requirements. There are not enough team sports offered and the spring Track team seems especially limited on how many students may compete. No football, soccer, etc. Overall, this is an excellent school, but every school has it's problems. I would still recommend it to others.

Beaver Lake is overcrowded. It is very overwhelming for 6th graders. Overall the principal does his best with such a large group. The secretaries are great and there is a postive attitude about being there. The extracurricular suffers from too many students and not enough coaches or time to allow them all to participate fully or even be taught.

I hate it. It is a bad school, poorly run, and they had very poor music and arts.Very little parent involvement, and I do not like the way the school is run.
