    As a parent of 6 years I knew the school school teachers and school administrators. It is one of the best in my view.

    the quality of academic programs is supurb. the teachers are the most kind and understanding people and the amount of teachers per grade is perfect. there are three teachers per grade and the school is perfect with that. there is a music class and an art class which all of the children love. the parent involvement is also great. bee meadow's PTA at this time consists of about 100-110 parents (mostly moms) which have at least one fund raiser per month.
