Our children had a top notch experience. Their test scores are in the very highest range in all categories. I personally don't believe that is all due to the school, we provide much support at home and have instill a belief that education is the top priority in our household. Children need both the school and family support to thrive in their education and this school with its top notch staff and excellent Parent Faculty Association who all have only the best interest of the children in mind have done their part to make this a great school.

Fantastic school. My son has attended for the past several years and has had a great experience in each grade. We our excited for our second child to start school there soon. Teachers and rest of staff truly care about the students. Many opportunities for educational experiences besides the basic learnings that take place inside the classrooms. These include outdoor experiences, science and history camping trips in grade 5 and 6, and many others. A truly great school.

Other than some good teachers, and good PTA this was a horrible experience.

I love this school. We've had two kids go through, the youngest in 5th now. Our experience had been terrific. Teachers and staff are great. It has a terrific Parent Faculty Association with lots of parental involvement and support. All in all a top notch neighborhood school that I don't see how anyone could be disappointed in.

Two of my children attended this school, one from 1-6 grades. My first loved her time at Beck, and had wonderful teachers, although 4 of the teachers she had have since retired, in part due to a change of benefits for teachers from the county. The school has had 5 principals in the time since I've been involved as a parent, and they were all supportive of the parent volunteers and parental involvement in the school, but different principals have different priorities, so things will vary depending on the administrator. There is a great art program that is run by the parents, and the PFA conducts fundraisers which help to pay for an art & PE coordinator, and the school has a volunteer coordinator who is invaluable to the school. There has been an issue with classroom limitations since the introduction of the Spanish-English Immersion program which means having a class for each grade. The music teacher no longer has his own classroom, but uses the multipurpose room. My 2nd child was recommended for a GT magnet program and no longer attends Jessie Beck, but she loved her time here. My children did not experience bullying, but there might be more issues for minority children.
