Excellent School. This is our families 5th elementary school. Of the 5 schools we have been in this is the best. The teachers work hard to make sure my son and daughter get what they need and push my son to learn more. The teachers, counselor, principal, and I all met before school to help my daughter who was having a hard time in reading. She goes to the before school learning help and is in LAP for extra help. I agree with the last post that the principal does care and he is always willing to help. I went to him a few times with problems and he took care of them right away. The school just keeps getting better and better and that is because of the teachers and Mr. Zarling. My daughter is doing things in 3rd grade that my son did in 4th grade in Tennessee. Unfortunately, we only have 1 more year at Beachwood. We will miss Beachwood and Mr. Zarling since he is leaving after this year.

While students are enjoying time off this summer, school district officials across the country are grappling with the issues associated with Common Core Standards, as well as plenty of opposition from parents and teachers.
As more schools return to in-person learning, teachers and parents find themselves dealing with the trauma and stress created by the pandemic.
After more than a year of remote learning, schools are finally returning to in-person instruction but how has the pandemic changed the face of public education and what will it look like moving forward?
