This school is very clean and building is very modern and nice.You have your caring teachers and not so caring as any school.The band director is wonderful . She engages all the students and if you want to learn and move up, if you try; you will in there. During the pandemic lockdown, even though seriously ill, she stayed in contact with her students. Not many did!!!School principal is very fair and does a great job.

Beckley Stratton has been going downhill in education and student/teacher behavior. The students treat the teachers like crap as well as the teachers treating students wrongly. My daughter has been going there for 2 years and when we moved, she was so behind on everything that she was put into special needs classes. This is not a school you should send your child to, unless you/your child don't care about education! Parent's don't ruin your child's education like this. Send your students to park/trap hill. Anything but Beckley Stratton!
