Beverly Cleary School Reviews

I studied at Beverly Cleary Middle School for two consecutive years: grades 7-8. It was a lovely experience as the staff really got to know you and everyone was very inclusive. Coming from a different country and having this as my first ever school in the U.S. was a wise choice. Located in Portland, it has a lot of diversity and promotes freedom of expression. What perplexed me though was the students' attitudes compared to what I experienced in Asia. They were too direct and blunt that they lacked finesse and seemed to be a tad bit more rude in an outsider's perspective. Having to wear casual clothes instead of uniforms was also a huge leap for independence as conformity dims more and more into the background.

Some of the teachers are sexist. Many teachers were last minute additions that are first year teachers and have to share classroooms. Overall a very hit or miss situation as about 50% of the teachers are great and the other half are not .
It’s a hit or miss school some teachers are good and some are bad . There are no drugs and alcohol at BCS which is nice.
