  • Reviewed by Parent/Guardian on January 10, 2007
  • Rating: 4 (4 / 5) Flag as inappropriate
  • While Beaches Episcopal School (BES) is a fine school in Jacksonville, there are several areas where it needs improvement:
    1. Fewer movies during class time (none or very few). This is self explanatory, but in classes there should be no movies and yet Beaches Episcopal still continues to show too many.
    2. Too many half days and special days "Grandparents' Day," "Challenge Day" etc. School is about learning, not fund-raising. Half-days should not count as a full day.
    3. Fewer substitute teachers - teachers are out too often. If you are sick, fine, but absences should be rare, not common.
    4. Class sizes are a little too large. Studies have shown that reducing the class size *by* 5-6 would help students.
    All in all, Beaches Episcopal School is a good school, but has a few areas that need improvement.
