Overall a great school. Teachers are helpful and for the most part reasonable. Easy to get classes that you want to take as there are so many classes to chose from. Sports are really valued and competitive, and there are many clubs to chose from. The building is fairly new so it's pretty and there is plenty of free parking, and really good facilities for music and sports. I think the best part of this school is their laptop program, so every student leases their own mac book air over the four years, and if you want to keep it after graduation you pay like $1 once the lease is over and it's yours. For students that can't afford or choose not to lease/buy a laptop, there are plenty of loaners that students can use in class if they are needed for a lesson or assignment. Overall, for a public school, it is a high quality education, it's diverse, and safe! You can most definitely make a great high school experience here.

Overall, this high school thrives in its academics and its willingness to embrace new extracurriculars. However, it puts most of its emphasis on the science and math departments as well as the football team. There are plenty of interesting electives to choose from, but they are all taught by non-qualified teachers who've never professionally studied the topic in their life. Furthermore, several of the teachers have no other qualification for being there besides being an alumnus. While there are so many after school activities and programs like music, student participation is terribly low most likely due to smartphones, vape nation, and the pressure to take more AP classes than needed.
Beverly High School was, to put in small words, an eye-opening learning experience. Not only did the students and staff help me to realize my potential, they helped me to seek out my weaknesses. It's often said that weakness is a direct correlation to something bad or something that drags somebody down. However, BHS was quick to help me utilize those weaknesses to strengthen my understanding of unknown concepts and open the door to strengths I didn't know I had. Although Beverly High School did a stupendous job at trying to implement school community as a large part of student and staff lifestyle, I would like to see them open the doors to more student opinion on academic matters. I would like to see a little more consistency in the grading policy as it varies from class to class. All in all though, Beverly High School provided me with all the tools and skills that make me feel assured and fulfilled on my way to college.
