My daughter is a first-year student in the 6th grade gifted class at Beasley. We love the sense of pride the school members in here. She is challenged academically, gets a great dose of a black girl magic, and fits in the values of my family.

There are entirely too many children in the school for it to be a magnet school. The focus is more on discipline than anything else. They have no control whatsoever. A lot of the teachers need to be evaluated and retested and they need a real principal. I know that it is a tough job and commend those who do it but don't just put a warm body in that spot and think that it is ok. Constantly squeezing 32 kids in the small classrooms and then they can't get what they really need is not good.
