    "I highly recommend Beckendorff JH. My daughter is very, very happy there. Teachers are hands-on REMARKABLE, flawlessly putting their high credentialed qualities to the ultimate test. This is a luxury for every student (& parent!). After all, we're talking about a public sch. No guesswork here, as to the reason(s) this sch ranks top 1% in the state."

    "Prior to pulling our son from priv sch & investing in our public school tax $, we researched midd schs for >2 yrs. "Beckendorff will s-t-r-e-t-c-h your child's mind." I was told over & over by peer parents. Wow, those parents WEREN"T kidding! Apparently, Beckendorff is proud of this fact. My son is GT & we went w/the half load GT classes vs. going full throttle w/every single content area. He takes a combo PreAP & GT. Parents will immed. detect a curriculum overlap in the 2 programs. This makes it very nice overall. Just be ready, & PREPARE YOUR CHILD. For this is def. a cold reality & a new normal, replete w/above standard expectations & responsibility. The HW load can be described as overkill--but we wouldn't have it any other way. I'm confident my son will eventually thank us for enrolling him in an above level quality education."

    "Beckendorff is one of the best schools, but they work their students too much/hard. Their teachers are very friendly, though."
