My sons went to another local school that was horrible. The changes in my children is nothing short of amazing. The teachers are so professional and the lines of communication are always open. My boys have done a 360 and flourished in this school.

Considering my kids went to a different school district that was horrible this school is a breath of fresh air. In my experience everyone I''ve dealt with has been accommodating and professional.

The staff members of Beverly City School have no respect for their students or family members. The teachers in this school are always saying that they are against bullying but they are the first ones to bully your kid and then sit there in your face and say that your child is a liar when your child has plenty of witnesses. They are unprofessional and do not know how to speak to children with respect especially when the parent is in the room. So if they treat your child with no respect when your there imagine when your not there!? my child would comes home crying every other day with a different story about her bullying teacher! I feel hopeless because this is the only school in this town
