    When I decided to send my son to BAS in 2010 it was graded as an A School. It is currently a C school. Very Disappointing! My son's papers (although a straight A student) were often littered with comments on what he did wrong without much if any of the positives noted. My son was babied or as another reviewer states "pampered" which I appreciated when he was a 6th grader however I question how well they're preparing their students for the reality of High School. For only having 286 students they are not very organized. Last year at back to school night with just three days before the start of school schedules were not ready. It's just a few days away from August and I still have not received my son's F-CAT scores from last spring. My son complained about three teachers in particular (two that only worked there for a short time) regarding bad attitudes being inappropriate and shopping on their cell phones during class. All in all my son enjoyed his time at BAS. I was almost always kindly greeted by a particular office staffer whom I and my son greatly appreciated! There are many great extra-curricular activities offered at BAS! RAISE THAT GRADE BOBCATS!

    Good teachers that are handicapped by the administration. Administrations bottom line is the money they get for the number of students enrolled in their school. Teachers teach only those things that will be on the FCAT. Students are pampered to the extent that it hurs their education.

    This school will keep your child challenged...I love that part about it. There are also advanced classes available which is great. Very safe school too.

    After being a former student of the school I believe that it was better than the other schools in pensacola the teachers there actually listen to everything you have to say and they give good feedback Even though it might be out in the country the race diversity is still present. This makes BAS one of the best schools to take your children to for their middle school experience. Go Beulah Go Bobcats!

    I went to beulah last year and the 2 years before that I was on the girls basketball team all three years and loved every minute of middle school. this is the best school so sending your child there will be the best decision. at that school they will have social experiences but not to many of them and will be able to be friends with all the different stereotypical groups. it is honestly the best. I have so many memeories left at that school that I would never change. I wish I could go back and relive every moment and if you go there now you do not have it bad no matter what you think so please enjoy it while you can becasue you will never have this much freedom these kinds of friendships or this much fun.

    I'm a student at Beulah Academy and I think its a great school. We just got in a brand new building and our teachers are extremely intelligent. There is band class drama and many other sports and clubs kids can get involved in.

    I think the teachers at Beulah were very good last year. I am glad my child was able to be in the band. She did very well and looks forward to it again this school year. We are hoping that the same band teacher will be able to come back so that the kids dont have to have so many band teachers again.

    I feel that the high teacher turnover rate at this school is detrimental to educational continuity for the students.
