    My school lacks adequate leadership. The current person in charge is controlling untrustworthy and dishonest. It is no wonder that the school lacks adequate parental volunteering for car pool and the lunch room.

    I love this school. Academically the best. The entire staff (Principal teachers assistants and including the cafeteria staff and lunch room monitor)are all very professional. I can't think of anything I don't like about this school. You can trust that your child is in a nice & safe environment where everyone cares.

    my child is finishing kindergarten at beverly woods tomorrow and i can't say enough wonderful things about the school. he wasn't reading before he started kindergarten and really disliked writing. he's reading chapter books reads to his brother's class and writes little books on a daily basis. i am beyond impressed with what he has learned this year and the staff is EXCELLENT.

    To the person that supposedly KNEW first hand of the experience. I am the mother of the child speaking on the original post. The school never called me to come pick my son up. The YMCA Steele Creek was responsible for picking up my son daily- not myself. I never once heard from the school until a month had passed- mind you the 3rd day of school they LOST my son. He is now attending Berewick Elementary and LOVES it. We have had absolutely NO problems since we switched schools. I'm a single mother. I entrusted the YMCA to pick him up for me daily- which they did. I could not "fix" them being late if I was not made aware. However I did fix the situation and had him removed from the school altogether. Obviously you are speaking on another situation. You know NOTHING of my situation involving MY son

    per the review about the principal calling DSS and the parent taking the child out of the school I know first hand that the child was picked up at least 45 minutes to an hour and half late every day and the mother was not cooperative about coming to get him.

    My son has been at this school for two years and I plan on him being here through the 5th grade. This school is very organized child oriented and ensures the children get the instruction they need. My son has always been classified as a very smart child and had problems being challenged ar other schools. At Beverly Woods he is pushed to learn and do his best. Here they learn a wide array of things and are able to focus on subjects other than just math and reading because they do so well on their testing. There is community and parent incolvement. I am very pleased.

    My son will be finishing kindergarten this year at Beverly. All I can say is that he has made a few good friends and that he LOVES waking up to go to school everyday. He couldn't read before he started school and now he's reading 60+ page books by himself that I know I wasn't able to when I was his age. He loves to learn asks lots of questions and is just getting smarter and smarter every day. The fact that he loves going to school is enough for me to know that this school is doing what it's supposed to do.

    I am so proud and happy that my son goes to Beverly Woods and I am extremely excited that my daughter will be attending Kindergarten this year. Everything about this school is excellent and there is absolutely nothing that I could criticize or complain about.

    We could not be more pleased with our experience at Beverly Woods. We have two children there now with a third on the way next year and have been thrilled about how each of our children has been really seen and then taught accordingly. The teachers we have had have been stellar and go above and beyond the call of duty every day. I will say that we have personally dealt with the principal in a matter pertaining to challenging one of my children academically and she could not have been more responsive pleasant and helpful. The individualized care that my children have received at BWE has been super and the parental involvement at the school just rounds the experience out wonderfully.

    I am a former teacher and the grandparent to a kindergartner at Beverly Woods. Everything I've observed says this school is devoted to meeting the needs of its students. I don't think there's a school anywhere that could have done a better job for my granchild this year and I'm most grateful for the high expectations excellent discipline and the positive attitude there.

    We've been at Beverly Woods for 4 years now and have two children there. I can't say enough good things about the school teachers and the administration. Contrary to the previous writer I believe there is a lot going on in those classrooms. Dedicated teachers who go the extra mile to make sure each child's needs are being met. Get involved and you will see the difference it makes. There are a lot of extras at BW. Things that enrich the classroom experience such as a teaching garden and in depth study of various countries. We're happy and plan to stay.

    My child attended Beverly Woods for one year and I removed my child from this school after that first year. My child lost a year of education because of the administration of this school.The Principal was rude and cold and could care less about hearing my concerns. The teacher was completely incompetent and the Principal and Vice Principal made me feel that it was our children that had a problem. There was no structure or learning going on in the classroom.

    We have four children at Beverly Woods Elementary and I nothing but good things to say about our experience the last two years. Parent involvement is excellent and I am extremely impressed with their program to help children with special needs. They do an excellent job. We tried another CMS elementary school before and there is a night and day difference. It all has to do with great leadership teachers and parental involvement.
