This achool is filled with ghetto parents and overworked and tired teachers. My children transferred from a north side school to this school and went from never having a fight in their lives to getting into one everyday. My first grader even had a chair thrown at her face because a student did not ...  Read more

I was very disappointed on this day....after being off for the summer the school is still not finished with the remodeling and the school ending on June 15th so the remodeling could start for my daughter's classroom. No A/C for the classroom we have to bring fans and bottled water for the kids. I really ...  Read more

I think Beethoven is an excellent school. They are striving to educate urban children in spite of social and economic odds. The are a Track E school and they even opened school during the intercession breaks so the kids would not have a large break in their instruction. Way to go Beethoven!

The students from Clark will relocate to Beethoven due to the Clark school closing. I must say ...  Read more

One teacher doesn't even get off her chair the entire day. Others decide to turn on the television as her ...  Read more

This school is horrible! I was recommended to this school by a co-worker. The faculty is the most unreceptive group of what are supposed to be professionals in my life! The children run a muc, and the ones in charge seem to side with the students, when they are out of control. There is no form of discipline ...  Read more

I think the Great School's rating says it all - this school is a cesspool. From first hand account I will say the students are terrible acting, the administrators extremely shallow and click-ish and the parents ridiculous. The only positive are the teachers who truly work hard and some of them are ...  Read more
