    This school is a joke and I personally blame the principal Marilyn Saucedo. Kids and parents get no respect. She likes to play hardball more than she cares to help. School has ParentConnect but teachers are not required to update it. Security worries about all the wrong things. I pulled my child out of that school after numerous complaints went unaddressed

    My child attended this school for four years. Where should i start first they lost my child's credits luckily I saved all the grades and credits. My child struggled with math and they wanted to my child to be with the same teacher for all four years. I don't get it. I asked for my child to be moved and they would not do it. So I had to go into that school and get a teacher transfer. The principle told me that my child would not graduate. What kind of caring is that. WOW! That really opened my eyes even bigger. How can you tell a parent that and show no emotions. My child was not a trouble maker always attended school. I felt like he really didn't want my child to graduate. But see he is not God God has the last answer. My experience with Beaumont school has been the worst. This is not chuck wagon days anymore!

    My child is going to graduate this year 2010. I have been pleased with the school. Education is decent the majority of the teachers are hard working AP classes challenging. ASB is really working to make the High School more sociable this year. The band program is the absolute worst program I have ever been involved with if you child lives for the band program I would recommend a district transfer to a different school. I would be worth the drive. Otherwise the school has been good to our family and my child has already received acceptance to college. Next year we will have a freshman and since we have dropped the band program I believe the next 4 years will be great. We are looking forward to the education at Beaumont.

    I am on my third child to graduate from BHS. It has been a great experience.

    My advice to anyone considering moving thier family to Beaumont and enrolling any child in the Beaumont Unified School District is RUN! The school's are terrible and the education is lacking to prepare the students for college.

    I'm a freshman at this school and it's the worst school ever. First off there's way to many kids! It's like walking through Disneyland. Not enough tables for lunch oh wait we don't even have a indoor cafeteria! They make us carry our books cause they don't have lockers. Their solution is get a rolling backpack. The principal is really nice but most I the staff is so yea but the teachers all have soda machines in every building and we don't have lockers!? this is the worst school that I've been to. Oh and the test scores aren't that good anyway.

    Beaumont High School is a wonderful school to be st. Though it may lack in some areas due to a dearth of funding Beaumont does very well in preparing students for the future. A note to all test scores on the STAR testing don't really show how good a school is. Has anyone ever considered that most students don't care at all about a test that will not affect their grades? I think parents need to step up and get their children motivated!

    When I went here as a junior at this school I noticed how laid back this high school is when I went to Mission Viejo High. The difference is a huge gap of education population and knowledge of the people. Most people complain that more students are coming to Beaumont but thats how it is at most places. The students at Beaumont is less socialable they have groups like any high school. This is the era were in parents get used to it. This isn't the past and never will be it may repeat in some cycle of teaching. Even if it gets huge just means you need to change your teaching style to show to the class. The Teachers here are good but way to laid back its not hard to pass. Its as if they want you to pass from this high school.

    I have observed and studied High Schools not just in this state but nation wide and even at a global standpoint and I have seen that we are really lacking behind compared to many other schools and with how the town is growing one would at least hope for betterment in education and while it is coming slowly i feel that it could be coming along much faster. The teachers teach very well for the most part only a few who don't have their act together all the way. From what i have viewed of Principal Leadership the campus could go with some reforms. For example the rules tend to change without being shown on any document just by word of mouth. The dress code also has many changes throughout the year and can change from day to day with its chaos.

    My child was suffering of the lack of academics in Beaumont. The teachers barely assign homework and the tests are way to easy. My child was begging for more work. I had to buy her SAT books and other workbooks so she can keep up with other schools. The students in the school believe that they can easily get into a U.C. school or an Ivy League just because they have a 3.5 or higher. Believe me there is alot more you have to do to get into a good college. No effense but this school's raking is pretty low compared to other schools and getting a good G.P.A. here is nothing compared to other schools. I think the teachers need to show the students how hard it is to get into a good college before its too late for them.

    I believe that the academic programs available at BHS are very strong. There is a varied curriculum offered through the comprehensive high school which supports all students' learning styles. There is a strong focus on the California academic standards and these are developed at length for each core discipline. API scores have consistently risen over the past several years. Teachers are also very active in extracurricular activities allowing students to have a stronger rapport with them.

    This is a really great school

    The teachers for the most part are Superb especially Miss Downs and Mr. Hakala. Mr. Wayne Hackney is definitely an asset to the school but the school would certainly be better off all the way around without the current principal (Mrs. Norwood). In all of my dealings with her and in speaking with several of the school employees and students I would have to say she definitely gives off the vibe that she really is not interested in the students but more concerned with how things appear. The students at Beaumont High School deserve a principal who is more hands on and more interested in them as human beings. I say let's put Mr. Hackney in there or how about Lauren Kinney. Then we could see these kids thrive!

    I have no complaints. Good school. Great Teachers.

    This school is really over-populated. The principals sit on there ass's all day and so nothing to improve that school. They only care about there pay-checks. It has good teachers and a good school layout but the over-population makes it hard to learn. Especially when there aren't enough books for the students or desks.

    I attended both Banning High and Beaumont High School although both school have their problems like all residents know beaumont small campus made it less intimidating and much more frendly with programs that provide hands on learning such as the day care cent run by students and the peer tutoring that I not only recived but was later able to give back.

    The API and exit exam results speak for themselves. As a BHS graduate I would dearly love to have my children attend this school. I was forced to move to Redlands to bring a higher quality to their lives. Poor counseling teachers and overall leadership have held this school down.

  • (11 years ago)

    I went here and my kids went here and now my grandchildren all 14 I have always liked this school but not always how they handle things. The school needs to not judge kids so hard.

    Not as good of school as they would like to claim. Seems more into the teachers than the students.
