    "I have one child in Beresford and one ready to start there next year. The staff has been teaching there for many years, which means they really know the kids and the families. The school practices the Lifeskills, which raises the kids self-esteem and awarenes. The teachers are all HET trained. We have art, Spanish and PE, all paid through the PTA. We have a music teacher for our upper grades, a computer lab that provides our kids with opportunity, and all grades receive educational field trips. Our school has the best student/teacher ratio with small reading intruction/PE flip. This way our kids get the best personal instruction in the district. We are lucky to be part of such a great school!"

    "We have two kids at Beresford, kindergarten and 3rd grade. Could not be happier with our choice as the school is one big family. Our kids know each and every teacher by name and would not be surprised if they know the majority of the parents by name. The school is run so well in regards to academics as well as life skills in general."

    "Beresford is a good school. The smallest in the district which means some challenges, but some real bonus' too. Beresford is the only school I'm aware of to offer Spanish lessons to English only speakers in the district. They also offer a PE/Reading flip to ensure small group focused instruction, and an ever changing and diverse enrichment program. The PTA are amazing. A small, but totally dedicated and passionate group who ensure the school stays on track culturally and financially by running many events and activities for the benefit of students, families and the community at large. Like most schools Beresford could do with more parent engagement from those outside the PTA to ensure its continued success. The teachers are committed, most have been on staff for many years, and remain determined to create and provide a good learning foundation. In reality an '8' school for sure!"

    "My son has been at Beresford for the past 2 years and loves it. The only complaint is that there are 24 students per class (grade 1/2) and it makes it difficult for the teacher to provde any additional assistance when needed. In addition, several of the kids are ESL and that slows down the overall level of classroom progress. No grass area for the kids to play - only cement. All in all, I recommend this school and my son loved his teachers and the friends he made."
