What I like about Beachwood is the school district. I have two children and their education is my number one priority. The teachers go out of their way to make sure my kids' needs are met. With us being in the middle of Covid 19 pandemic, I believe the district really gave a lot of thought and have a well laid out plan how to keep the kids safe and healthy. My kids are still learning and have adapted well to what Beachwood has put in place for their students.

Terrific public schools, city services, Police & Fire Departments. Home values have recovered & surpassed the 2008 crash. Very diverse residents and inclusive community. Love it in Beachwood!
Beachwood is a great place with great people, but the weather is absolutely AWFUL. The thunder and snow storms are so harsh, and don’t even get me started on the humidity and the cold. I checked the grade for the weather, and quite frankly, I and plenty of others think it should be an F. Alas, the weather does not define Beachwood THAT much, the education is fantastic, and so are the people. We could do better on the traffic, it’s horrendous during Christmas time.
