    I love some of the teachers and most of the teachers are magnificent and do a wonderful job. The principal as well is wonderful and truely cares for every child enrolled there and looks at them as they were his own child. However my daughter when getting ready to start kindergarten there failed their "testing" so of course they said my child was not ready. But because I was smarter than the person doing the testing put my child in anyway and she passed with flying colors. HAHA ) Now this year her teacher of whom I will not name due to do what I am about to write....plays favorites. My child will do something and get in trouble but one of her friends of which is in the same class and we are very close with's child will do the exact same thing and wont get in trouble. Overall I think highly of Beavertown and most of the teachers and other staff in the building I just think the few bad apples they have there are holding the school back and possibly even the reason for some of the other bad comments on here. So would I recommend to others if you send your child there I hope you get a great teacher and if not fight for your child and Mr.Kozarek will make sure it is right.

    Beavertown School is the BEST because of the combination of supportive parents dedicated teachers and students with a positive attitude! At Beavertown everyone really CARES and gives 1000%! There are afterschool clubs to help students with homework math skills and various outside interests such as Ancient Roman History and higher level thinking strategies. Beavertown is a special place. You are so fortunate if your child is enrolled there!

    Beavertown is the best kept secret in Kettering. It is truly a 'community' approach to educating children - students parents and staff working together. The school has continually received an 'Excellent' rating from the State of Ohio. 'Continue to put kids first!'

    My son attended Beavertown and my opinion of the school is not very good. When compared to the other elementary schools in the district I believe Beavertown is not making the grade. My son struggled through and no one seemed to care. I did not see much parent involvement in the school. I think they should do more fund raisers in order to improve the school itself. My 9 yr old stepdaughter attends JFK if I had known the difference then my son would not have been at Beavertown. It was like stepping into a different world.

    I feel that Beavertown is a good school overall however there are definitely problems with some of the teachers. The grading system is extremely difficult and I have had numerous problems with one of my children's teachers. My son is very intelligent but because he felt from the beginning that no matter how hard he tried or how well he did she would never see it as 'A' work and he gave up because of her. I have talked with the principal and counselors about the problems and it falls on deaf ears. They promise but don't deliver. Unfortunately my son's self esteem has suffered greatly this year because of this teacher. My other son has a wonderful teacher and has excelled because of the pride she takes in the children's strengths and she wants to be there which is very apparent.

    Beavertown is an excellent school. My daughters have been attending since since kindergarten and one is in the 5th grade and the other in the 4th. The afterschool activities are wonderful. Parent involvment is excellent. They have a chess club an art club and Reaching Academic Potential clubs afterschool. The teachers are awesome. I am excited that my oldest is going on to middle school but a little sad that she won't be attending Beavertown. At least I still have one still there for 1 more year. Keep up the good work Beavertown Staff!

    Beavertwon is a good school for academics; however their extracurricular and parent involvment is very low for a quality district like Kettering.
