Like every school, Beardstown has had it's fair share of problems. It is surrounded by a low income community and the immigration level is one of the highest in the states. Due to this, they are many different kinds of culture and it is not uncommon to walk through the halls and hear as many as twenty-one different languages being spoken. This school has provided me personally with a chance to be exposed to so many different people, as well as the cultures they are from, which has made my outlook on the rest of the world that more knowledgeable. Overall, I would not change my experiences at this school for one anywhere else, because in the end, it has taught me more in the hallways, than any classroom ever could in my future. For that reason alone, I feel I will be prepared for the fields I plan to go into after high school, both in the social aspect, as well as the academic one.

Beardstown High school, is a great school. I’ve been here my whole life! I haven’t had any bad experiences, but i know people who have. I think this school could improve/ change a lot of things. Starting by their new 2018-2019 school program.
This school was an amazing school many years ago, when we still had our older teachers. It used to be fun and kids really liked it. But things have changed a lot since new administrators have been employed there. The new teachers are not as involved with their students and they let the jocks get away with whatever they want. The school is full of hypocrites and the students hate it now. Things changed for the worst, and all the good teachers are now retiring and the new teachers have no idea what their job is. It is quite sad.
