The school is great because it is in a great community. Needless to say there are a lot professionals who chose to live there. Thinking of parents with good job and post gradudate degree you no double it helps to make the school great. Yes it is very competitive. My kid is going to be 7th Grader this Fall. A lot of his GT classmates have taken CBE. It is feeding SLHS so kids are better get prepared.

Coming from out of the country with ICGSE my son do need to adjust to how things are here in Katy. He love the school most of the teacher are good I love the choir teachers I think they're one of the best. 1 thing that is still a pinch point are those "bully" and "racist" students and I regret to inform that when I try to communicate this there are no direct feedback from the 6Gr AP. Luckily the situation improved or else I would personally go to the principal.
only problem is ela classes are hard but maybe because i'm GT... otherwise its very nice
this school was fine I was a student. I got A LOT of work and the 8th grade English was very hard. other than that great teachers who really taught everything.
Beckendorff is the one school that does live up to the reputation of schools that are located on the south side of I-10. Specifically the students can be very difficult to manage. However the faculty members are less professional and organized than those at other Cinco Ranch/Seven Meadows schools.
Beckendorff is an excellent school! I have two children enrolled there and theu both LOVE their school. I do not believe that there is more work than they can handle there are plenty of opportunities for them to get tutorials from their teachers during advisory and sometimes after school. The teachers put in every effort to hsve your child succeed. KatyISD is the place to be!
I highly recommend Beckendorff JH. My daughter is very very happy there. Teachers are hands-on REMARKABLE flawlessly putting their high credentialed qualities to the ultimate test. This is a luxury for every student (& parent!). After all we're talking about a public sch. No guesswork here as to the reason(s) this sch ranks top 1% in the state.
Prior to pulling our son from priv sch & investing in our public school tax $ we researched midd schs for >2 yrs. "Beckendorff will s-t-r-e-t-c-h your child's mind." I was told over & over by peer parents. Wow those parents WEREN"T kidding! Apparently Beckendorff is proud of this fact. My son is GT & we went w/the half load GT classes vs. going full throttle w/every single content area. He takes a combo PreAP & GT. Parents will immed. detect a curriculum overlap in the 2 programs. This makes it very nice overall. Just be ready & PREPARE YOUR CHILD. For this is def. a cold reality & a new normal replete w/above standard expectations & responsibility. The HW load can be described as overkill--but we wouldn't have it any other way. I'm confident my son will eventually thank us for enrolling him in an above level quality education.
Beckendorff is great.Yes there's a lot of work but it's excellent beautiful. and almost everyone loves the library there.The teachers are kind understanding and do try to help students as best as they can.I know because I GO there!! By the way Orchestra?It's one of the best and it's won many great awards.
Beckendorff is one of the best schools but they work their students too much/hard. Their teachers are very friendly though.
Excellent school communication between teachers and parents is excellent. It saddens me that this is my childs last year here but look forward to her years at Seven Lakes High School..
this school is great and all but there is alot of work
Beckendorff is academically a top notch junior high school. High school credits are offered in eighth grade to help the students maximize their learning potential. The facility is beautiful and is well organized for each grade level. The teachers of BDJH are very caring and ensure that each child is aware of classroom expectations and assignments. Extra curricular (fine arts) activities are excellent. It is a great school with a great environment for children to learn.
The academic program is just excellent - the classes are divided in A AP and GT. There are music (orchestra band choir) art (drama) and sports(volleyball basketball golf tennis track etc) activities available and the set-up is great. The communication and the involvement of the parents is very effective.
