    "Our two daughters truly loved their experiences at Beach Elementary. The school is build around a strong core of dedicated and talented educators with detailed knowledge of current pedagogy surrounding literacy. Parent involvement is a key element to the school's success with adult volunteers offering a variety of support at all grade levels. These two elements compensate for a lack of leadership and vision from the current administration. Echoing a comment from another posting, the principal avoids conflict by telling parents what they want to hear. Unfortunately, she failed to follow through on promises on several occasions. However, despite the current principal's shortcomings and inability to articulate a genuine vision beyond test scores, test scores and test scores the staff and families more than make up for her weaknesses. Your children will be in very good hands."

    "We are very happy with our school, the teachers, the office staff, the after-school program, the community and the parents who so heartily give of themselves to help all our children have a committed and safe environment for learning and developing relationships and to be life-long learners. The children are placed above all else at Beach Elementary."

    "This school is too concerned about meeting state minimum standards. They are always crying about how little money they have or how they can't do something because of money. There is no gifted program for k-3 and the differential learning program is very poor. The principal is very weak and has no imagination when it comes to serving students. She is also wishy-washy, telling you one thing in a parent meeting and then not following through, or making a new decision that she doesn't communicate to you until you follow through. We moved to Piedmont for the 'outstanding' schools. Instead we pulled our kids out of the school and sent them to nearby private schools with clear, and achievable standards. If you have a kid who can excel, stay away from this school, save money, move to Montclair and send your kid to a day school"

    "Excellent academics and extracurricular activities. Smallest of the 3 Piedmont elementary schools which are absolutely excellent."
