    "It has been 3 days since my "fresh start" here & all I can say is "DAMN", which applies in both negative & positive ways. Let's start with the negatives. This school is small and very crowded. Everywhere you go, it feels like New York City - pushing, yelling, shoving, etc. Students don't know how to transition from class to class without the nonsense. Another issue is the school campus itself. It is very difficult to locate classes, since all the classroom wings look identical & it's very common for students to get lost. The quad is very small and its stage can't be seen from 10ft away. Now for the positives. Beckman has a very good diversity percentage of all races. It is a very clean and very safe school to be at. The staff are very committed to helping their students succeed. The teachers have a lot of poll and are the perfect people to go to when establishing a solid career path. (I'd say my favorite would have to be Mr. Perdue, who has worked for Pixar and other various film productions. Go to him if you have a passion for film!) Overall, this school is the perfect place for anyone wanting to career in the medical field, film or science industry."

    "This is a brief look into the pros and cons of Beckman. Beckman is a school of high expectations. Everyone is smart and the people who don't find themselves have high grades are seen as unsuccessful in life I the eyes of other students. As a student myself I have seen that there really aren't any cliques but there are more of little groups who just hang out with each other. Teachers are often decent but there are some teachers who won't swallow their pride and actually listen to students. There are however some teachers who try to inspire the students to learn with positive reinforcement. The school is generally clean but there is a constant problem with birds flying over the area. The principal however refuses to look at the student point if view and enforces a strict set if rules where there is no second chance, just detention. Our tutorial system is terrible in the fact one has to sign up for a class. Overall I think the learning aspect our school offers outweighs the amount of stuff going in in our school"

    "My child was an underachieving student, but the atmosphere at this school made her a high achiever.I felt the principle Ahoer was a great leader.I have seen through another teachers eyes that there is a direct link from principle to learning enviroment.The priciple sets the tone,goals,expectations and support that determines how the teachers can conduct their classes either with support from the administration or not, this school was balanced."

    "Curriculum designed for college bound students. Athlethics programs are developing as the campus is relatively new compared to other schools in their respective leagues."

    "The leadership at this school is the root of the problem, the disrespect given to the students as well as the parents is appauling. There are some excellent teachers particularly in English and History, but the administration needs to be overhauled."
