    Horribly rude office staff! And though they have a nurse at the school the teacher may or may not send your child to her. My child sat all day with a high fever that was caused from a severe strep infection and her teacher said she felt unwell as well and had my child take her seat. I guess a teaching degree goes hand in hand with a medical degree... Had my child's complaint been taken seriously she would have been able to seek proper medical attention and not have to suffer it out!!

    My son had his fathers mom eat lunch with him well she decided that she would check him out without telling me Now we have to fill out a paper stating who CAN check our children out so if she was not on there why would they let her check him out... If we have to fill it out why wont they go by it I mean she wasn't on there for a reason.. I'm glad my child was not harmed.

    my son went to city schools before going to Beulah Co school. He has learned more and Grown up so wonderful since he has been there. His teachers a Beulah are Great they are teaching him things and when he gets home he teaches me things I never new about!

    My child started Beulah Elem. this year for the first time. I have some concerns. I have not been impressed with her teacher at ALL. She does not have control over her class room She does not submit grades into the STI system on a regular basis and information about events are not sent home on a regular basis. My older child goes to the High School and I have been very impressed with that school however I have not been too impressed with the Elementary School so far. I can just pray that she gets a better teacher next year. I think that will make a world of diffrence.

    My daughter went to Beulah Elementary thru 4th grade. Beulah is a great school and the Teachers and Staff are outstanding and wonderfull with children. We moved away from Lee County during the summer of 2009 and my daughter has to start and new school. We are both scared and worried. We hope her new school will be as great as Beulah.. We will miss everyone from the school.

    I would not even consider sending my children to any other school. So I give Beulah School a 10!!!

    Great School and Especially Great and Knowledgeable teachers. The teachers are always going back to school to learn more and recieve more acredidations.

    I think Beulah is a great school to have my grandchildren in. They are treated with respect and are able to learn at their own levels.

    My son will be entering the 2nd grade in 2008. We never intended to stay in this area for as long as we have specifically because of the demographics. However I have been pleasantly surprised with the education my child has received thus far. He has had two superlative teachers who have coached excellence from my son. While we will not be staying in this area when there is an outstanding city school district near-by Beulah Elementary School has not given me pause about sending my child to county public school. What BES lacks in parental involvement they make up for in teacher and administrator dedication and preparedness for dealing with the demographic which is the majority at this school.

    Beulah Elementary School not only provides an infrastructure to facilitate quality academics the principal Weldon Parkman requires skill based achievements for it's students. There has been instances of misguided parents (vocal minority) trying to direct operations and policies of the school. I applaud Mr. Parkman's diligence in overcoming these misdirected parents.

    The school is well maintained. The parents should involve themselves much more in activities. The area is growing but no one is doing anything to help the schools or teachers.

    I think that Beulah Elementary is a great School. The teachers are very organized and they treat each kid the same. Both of my kids have done great at this school and have gotten some great education. I believe this school is one of the best in this county.

    I love the involvement that the faculty have with the kids as well as the parents. They have always been more than happy to assist me with whatever questions that I may have. I also was able to attend every function that my child's class had with no hesitation from the teacher. It's a really great school!
