    "They introduced the Common Core curriculum for the first time this year. Not impressed. The standards are "dumbed" down. Everything is taught in a group, all children are grouped and they basically teach themselves. My child is frustrate with having to learn math in a group the kids in the group bicker and argue but they are taught to resolve their differences, iLooking into the local private schools or moving to Virginia (they didn't adopt the CC standards). Curious to see what the MSA scores will be like since the test is going to be more advanced than what is being taught. The Common Core test won't be released till 2015. The children are the ones that will suffer if we parents don't put a stop to this. Do your research parents about common core. Let me just be clear, the teachers are doin their best with what is given to them to teach, the staff including the principal are all top notch and they truly care about the kids, my problem is the curriculum and that within itself is enough for me to seek for something better."

    "Beach Elementary really is a great place for kids. I cannot say enough good things about the hard working principal, Dr. Shisler; his energy has made the school (and the chess club) one of the best in the area. The teachers and staff are excellent and create a community atmosphere. In addition, the PTA and high level of parent involvement have a strong impact on the school's overall success."

    "I have had four kids start in this school and almost all of them finish here. We have since moved but we loved everyone at Beach. The Principle is one of the best principles anywhere. My kids love their time at Beach and are in all Honor classes as they have moved forward. All of my kids can now play chess and because of the Principle and Vice Principle my kids are going to take something with them that no one can take away. Thank You Beach!"

    "I would have to definitely agree with the previos review, the PE and recess time are definitely being deprived to our children. This is so sad since obesity is becominga widespread epidemic in the US and now our schools are enforcing that behavior. These are the years children need extra excercise, especially the best excercise of all....running..... to keep their minds sharp and focused and to burn off excess energy and here they are limited to 2 PE periods a week and one very short recess a day. I feel the teaching staff is doing amazing especially with very minimal break times and trying to get very young children to focus for a full 7 hrs. The lack of natural sunlight in the classroom is very depressing on top of the lack of outdoor activity. Parent involvement is very low from the schools we came from which is very sad for the teaching and support staff."
