    My son just began kindergarten and I have to say that he has excelled tremendously in reading in just 5 weeks. He is very much into learning and arts and crafts much more then ever before. His teacher is lovely and he seems to like her a lot. In general we are very satisfied and he is happy there.

    Sad to hear that the school leader and staff have a negative outlook on the possibility of Beverly Woods and Huntingtowne Farms Schools coming together? This kind of situation has happened all over Charlotte. Everyone wants the best for their child and a great education. When the school Principal, PTA and Dad s group want to have a Urgent Call To Arms For Beverly Woods" meeting. I was thoroughly disgusted at the narrow minded people involved in this matter. The school claims that they have standards when in actuality, I am embarrassed my children attend a school like this. This mentality of Our voice must be heard!! and offering a free beverage , at a local eatery/restaurant to attend a meeting to try to stop this possible merger. This is a new low for the school. I am ashamed and appalled at the desperate actions to keep a segregated school lead by the principal in charge. This is shameful and embarrassing as a parent and resident in the community. I have to wonder what other situations go on as a parent behind closed doors? Very disappointing!

    BWE is an excellent elementary school. We considered all the options - public, parochial, independent - and couldn't believe it when the "best" option appeared to be our neighborhood, public elementary. We are three years in (oldest starting 2nd, youngest starting K) and could not be happier! The administrators and teachers we have encountered are top-notch, nurturing and well-trained. The PTA is super-involved and makes a major difference, both in terms of manpower and financial support, for the programs the school can offer. The school is big - with 5-6 classes per grade - but the students seem to mix and mingle and get to know one another (the size also reduces cliquishness). Can't say enough positive things about our experience so far.

    We just moved here this year and came from private school. We have been very pleased with the welcoming environment and high expectations. The staff and administrators are among the best we have worked.

    This school lacks adequate leadership. If your child has any kind of learning disability or behavioral issues, the school leadership will likely unfairly push your child toward the EC (Exceptional Children) program to avoid properly dealing with the issue. Intimidation and control seems to be the inherent management attitude at this school.

    I love this school. Academically the best. The entire staff (Principal, teachers, assistants and including the cafeteria staff and lunch room monitor)are all very professional. I can't think of anything I don't like about this school. You can trust that your child is in a nice & safe environment where everyone cares.

    my child is finishing kindergarten at beverly woods tomorrow, and i can't say enough wonderful things about the school. he wasn't reading before he started kindergarten, and really disliked writing. he's reading chapter books, reads to his brother's class, and writes little books on a daily basis. i am beyond impressed with what he has learned this year, and the staff is EXCELLENT.

    To the person that supposedly KNEW first hand of the experience. I am the mother of the child speaking on the original post. The school never called me to come pick my son up. The YMCA Steele Creek was responsible for picking up my son daily- not myself. I never once heard from the school until a month had passed- mind you the 3rd day of school they LOST my son. He is now attending Berewick Elementary and LOVES it. We have had absolutely NO problems since we switched schools. I'm a single mother. I entrusted the YMCA to pick him up for me daily- which they did. I could not "fix" them being late if I was not made aware. However, I did fix the situation and had him removed from the school altogether. Obviously you are speaking on another situation. You know NOTHING of my situation involving MY son

    My son has been at this school for two years, and I plan on him being here through the 5th grade. This school is very organized, child oriented, and ensures the children get the instruction they need. My son has always been classified as a very smart child, and had problems being challenged ar other schools. At Beverly Woods he is pushed to learn, and do his best. Here they learn a wide array of things, and are able to focus on subjects other than just math and reading because they do so well on their testing. There is community and parent incolvement. I am very pleased.

    My son will be finishing kindergarten this year at Beverly. All I can say is that he has made a few good friends, and that he LOVES waking up to go to school everyday. He couldn't read before he started school, and now he's reading 60+ page books by himself that I know I wasn't able to when I was his age. He loves to learn, asks lots of questions, and is just getting smarter and smarter every day. The fact that he loves going to school is enough for me to know that this school is doing what it's supposed to do.

    I am so proud and happy that my son goes to Beverly Woods and I am extremely excited that my daughter will be attending Kindergarten this year. Everything about this school is excellent, and there is absolutely nothing that I could criticize or complain about.

    We could not be more pleased with our experience at Beverly Woods. We have two children there now, with a third on the way next year, and have been thrilled about how each of our children has been really seen and then taught accordingly. The teachers we have had have been stellar, and go above and beyond the call of duty every day. I will say that we have personally dealt with the principal in a matter pertaining to challenging one of my children academically, and she could not have been more responsive, pleasant, and helpful. The individualized care that my children have received at BWE has been super, and the parental involvement at the school just rounds the experience out wonderfully.
