When we moved here from Germany I had to get used to the school system first. But overall I have to say Beachwood is a great school. The teachers are good, besides the substitute Teachers.
They have a good PTA who is organizing nice and interesting stuff.
The only thing I was missing was something they offer in other schools on Post. " Musik Lessons" like Guitar or the flute after school.
That would make everything perfect for us ;-)
The school had a great principal and is getting a new one starting this new school year. So hopefully it continues to be the same => Good ;-)

Beachwood is a great school. This is our family's 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 went to the principal 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.

Our family loves Beachwood. I have had my 3 children at Beachwood for the last 4 years. I cannot disagree with the earlier post. The substitute teachers could be much better. I do agree that the teachers and principal they have there regularly are great. We could not be happier with the teachers, staff, and principal. Mr. Zarling sends out monthly newsletters with reports of the growth of the school and the parent surveys. He put it on the website under bobcat news. The school website has a survey's of every family who took the survey.

Also the greatschools.org website has a lot more reports from other happy parents. The school has won a bunch of awards and is just getting better. Mr. Zarling wrote a letter for us so we could hopefully stay on JBLM. He really does care about my kids and what I feel is best for my family, and that is to stay at Beachwood and JBLM! We will miss Mr. Zarling when he leaves to be a principal in the Carribean.

This is only my daughters 1st year @ Beachwood & I would like to say it is AMAZING! All of the staff is so kind & courteous. They always have time to talk with you & genuinely care about the children. My daughter is reading @ a 2nd grade

This school has NO REGARD for children's safety. There is nowhere for parents to drop off/pick up their children, despite repeated promises from the principal that such an area is "coming soon." You are either forced to walk your child to

The school called me THREE times telling me my daughter was not there. Not including the times they called my husband. The first time I told the sub-nurse my daughter was there and not at home. She then said she would check again. She called me back said the sub teacher said she was not there. I told her to go in the class room and see for her self, mind you that I have others kids at home taking naps. The third time she said my daughter was deffinitly NOT there. By that time my husband was there and able to point out my child. To find out no one even checked! Nothing was done by the way no set precautions if a child goes missing!!! No standards at all!

Pros: Regular staff is great

Cons: No standards for subs
