Arnold O. Beckman High School Reviews
The office staff is not "adequately trained" to work with the diverse (economic and cultural) student population.
Beckman is amazing! All of the events put on her are great from the pep rallies to the dances and I really like going here. Plus the teachers here are great and truly care about the students.
Due to certain staff at this school I agree that they are rude, mean, and disrespectful to students as well as parents. They are more concerned with their status quo.
This school will look good on transcripts, but is a very boring school to attend. Their counselors are very good at offering scholarships, too.
The staff who run the school are rude and mean. It's hard for parents to deal with them.
Its the best school ever! Its amazing and their teachers are amazing they really cooperate with the students and teach what we need to learn in a fun way.
