It has been everything I hoped elementary school would be for my children. The environment is warm and supportive and the academic rigor is impressive. For a small, non magnet school (so families are placed in the school by geography, not by lottery choice), Beresford does amazingly well with limited resources due mostly to the quality of it's teachers and administration and the behavioral norms instilled in the student body. I can't wait for my younger one to start next year!
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!
My kids (kindergarten and 4th) and I absolutely love Beresford Elementary! We love the staff, the programs they offer (i.e. art, spanish, monthly life skills, and the after school enrichment classes), and especially the families and amazing PTA leadership!! we also love it's cultural diversity, community and family involvement and warmth!!
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.
