    Beulah High School has achieved another dismal milestone for the Lee County School System. According to the 2013 Cohort Graduation Rate published by the State of Alabama only 75% of Beulah's students graduated in 2013 - that is down from 82% in 2011 & 2012 and 5% below the Alabama average of 80%. If I were considering moving to this area I would not enroll my child at Beulah High School until significant improvements/administrative changes were implemented.

    I was a student in Beulah this year and have transferred schools because of the terrible principal and teachers that this school has to offer. The current principal has no idea how to do his job correctly and well. He handled a situation I had horribly and got other students involved in something they did not need to know. Also the school itself is a complete dump. It is a disgusting facility inside and out. Another concern I have is with the students themselves most I have met are either uncaring inconsiderate jerks who don't care about anything more than getting out of there (which I understand completely) and themselves. There is no variety in students. They are all either idiots or preps who don't care about anyone other than their stuck up friends. The football team could be great if it were not for the terrible coach. The teachers are unsatisfactory and unfit to teach. The band is one exception to the terrible quality of the school. The band is hardworking intelligent and overall amazing. The band director is amazing and he is and amazing teacher. So overall the school is terrible and unsatisfactory and in my opinion needs some drastic changes. DO NOT GO!!!

    Beulah High School is a very good school.And the teachers and staff are all nice and very helpful.And they have a very good band and the teachers are nice.My son plays football and i have a son that played for the team a couple of years ago.And the teachers help my son out alot if he needs help.

    Some seventh and eigt she ph grade don't let their students learn from them its always look it up in the book. She shouldn't be a teacher there (mrs. Cantini aand she picks favorites many srudents and I mean many have complained she made me and some other students cry by saying she was gonna put our personal notes on the walll for evryone to see. This teaccher really needs to be fired I almost failed eigth grade and so did my brother we both had her. My other brother didn't and didn't almost fail. That says a lot about that teacher.

    I love beulah high school because first of all we have two great principles who will take time to discuss problems or what may need to be addressed they care about the children they come to support the athlets when you come to the school they make a point to make you feel welcome they communicate with parents teachers and students.They handle things as they accure.Beulah schools are great because they have elem and high school across from each other parents do not have to go so far in between to get one here and one there and get to work on time. Everybody knows everybody

    I moved my daughter here from another Lee county school. It was the best decision I have ever made. She has done very well at Beulah and now my youngest child is at the Elementary school and so far I love it as well. Beulah is a great place to learn.

    I happen to love this school very much.The students here are incredible.The teachers take there time to make sure I got done with my work and made sure I understood it all.It may not be for some people who want to go to a huge college but then again it is. I have friends in older grades whom are going to aubun university.So thats pretty big.Altough there is only one language its a great school.and it is growing . I mean last year we actually made it to championships for football which is huge.I love this school and I never want to leave it.

    My family moved here last year and I enrolled my 3.8 GPA Honor Student International Diploma nominee son in Beulah High. It was my greatest mistake. They will not accept some of his credits from his prior school even though they are a higher standard than ANYTHING Beulah offers. He has to accept them as electives. They only offer 1 foriegn langauge. He needs 3 years of a foreign languauge to get into a 4 year University. he will only have 2. And they call this a great school. Its a shame that a smart child has to dumb down when attending Beulah. They could really expand thier extracurricular activities also. I will not even comment on the lack of leadership and the beow average teachers.

    We moved to the area last year because we were told the school was great. That was a big joke. The teacher quality in the High School is the worse I have seen. I agree they lack leadership ethics and morals - students and even some of the teachers. The students don't take well to outsiders (new students) and the faculty is even worse. They would not transfer some of my daughters credits from advanced classes because they don't offer advanced classes and since they didn't have a class that matched that one they make her accept them as electives. This school is way behind in academics!!

    This school is steadily growing and improving. Although some teachers arent the best the school is okay overall.

    I have two children at Beulah high school. My son is a senior and my daughter is a junior. They have been enrolled at Beulah since kindergarten. I was not very impressed with he administration in the elementary but they moved into the high school I definitely saw why so many are moving to our area...the great school. They are broadening the academic course offering and hiring some really wonderful teachers. The sports programs are growing and improving tremendously. Parent involvement can definitely be seen when you are an involved parent. As our children leave Beulah to head to college I find myself looking for a reason to continue to volunteer with the wonderful coaches and children that are still there. I am glad we decided to send our children to this school.

    We recently moved here from Smith Station. My three children love Beulah my 7th and 9th grader are still A and B students. My 8th grader is ADHD and had allot of problems at Wacoochee staff student's failing I had to put him in a private school because he was not getting the help he needed there Now at Beulah he has had no problems with a student nor staff member and his lowest grade on this report card was a 77. Huge improvement from a 34!!!!!!! I beleive Beulah could improve on Staff to parent communication but overall that get an 'A' from me. P.S. Thumbs up to Coach Pitts My daughter is now in his class and she feels very challenged and is looking forward to what he has to teach her.

    Having a child at Beulah High has been a nightmare for me. We moved here 2 years ago and it has been one problem after another. I think that they lack leadership discipline and ethics. My child was went from an A student to failing when we moved here. If you have any hope for your child's future I would consider other options before sending them to Beulah High School.

    There are good teachers and there are bad teachers. I do feel that if you think your child is intelligent then dont send them to beulah. This will greatly hinder their educational experience.

    I attended Beulah from 3rd grade (1990-91) till graduation (Class of 2000). During these ten years I saw monumental growth in numerous facets of this school. The academic opportunities available were always increasing and today they have far surpassed those present then. There is also an abundance of opportunity for meaningful extra-curricular involvement and an extremely competent and caring faculty willing & capable of guiding any motivated student on to achieving great things in life. I feel the greatest problem at Beulah lies not in the quality of the academic experience available but in the lack there-of when the child arrives home. Parental support & encouragement is imperative to obtaining academic motivation personal character & self-esteem. Without these success in the professional world is all but impossible. Beulah can without doubt provide the door to success; however the keys are almost always found at home.

    As a former student of this school I have to add this comment. I've experienced of how complicated it can be to graduate if a principal doesn't want you to. The're are various teachers here some of them are excellent and do a great job in explaining difficult material to students these are mostly the younger teachers. Some of them are just boring you have to read books and fill out worksheets all week long and the teacher's just sitting at his desk supervising you. Americans don't pay their teachers just to sit around!!! The parents are as good as not involved in the school. They don't hear anything from school unless they want to complain about students. The safety is alright. One thing is to say They have a great band teacher he is very skilled and could teach students on a high musical level!!!

    I went to beulah elementary school from 1st to 6th grade and i went to beulah high school for 7th grade before my family moved to columbus georgia. I have to say that transferring from a school with an enrollment of 500 to a school with an enrollment of 1300+ was not an easy adjustment and through it all my opinion has stayed the same in saying that beulah is a much better school enviornment. I have two brothers who both made straight 'a's' at beulah. Now one of them has failed the 7th grade and the other is now struggling to pass the 10th. If you are considering sending your child here but you're not sure yet then i am here to reassure you. Send them there today!

    Overall Beulah is a good school that is constantly upgrading and improving but there are still a few problems. Most of the teachers especially the younger ones are very capable & seem to really care about their students. There are a few that openly pick favorites according to how much money their parents have or what church they go to or how they dress etc.. The principal seems to be very prejudice about certain things and take preference to some students. His role should be to encourage not discourage or discriminate. Its the ones that really need the encouragement that he seems to discriminate against the most. He has wrongly judged some students & they're not given the same consideration as others. Other than that Beulah High is a good school with a challenging curriculum. It has improved tremendously from earlier times.

    Beulah High School has been good to my children. I have one child who breezes though school and one who struggles. There are teachers who have taken a special interest in my struggling child and there are some who do not. Some teachers are just better than others. I think that you will find that at any school. Of course my child who struggles is just not a good student. We have to press her at home and it isn't always easy. The school can't do everything.

  • (10 years ago)

    I'm a Beulah Graduate. Many of my classmates and myself have gone on to develop successful careers. Most of us received college degrees and are making a good living (lawyers doctors nurses etc). I credit our success in college to a our foundations in high school. You get out of school what you put in it. Don't blame it on the staff-- there is nothing wrong with this program.
