Beauregard Elementary School

III. B. School Profile

 

1. View of School: At Beauregard Elementary School we pride ourselves in exceptional service and in providing a quality education that is also the hallmark of our incredible school. Children are able to "shine" and be recognized positively within our TEAM. The hallways and classrooms display samples of their work while adults and children alike greet each other warmly. Our TEAM of almost 800 children has a very diverse background both ethnically and socio-economically. Children offer their peers help and enjoy getting praise from their teachers and administrators. Parents and the community enjoy tutoring and coordinating other exciting activities for all to delight in. All events support the theme that at BES we are a TEAM and that Together Everyone Achieves More.  The Beauregard Elementary TEAM enjoys time together learning and having fun.

               

2. Community Info: Beauregard Elementary School is a jewel tucked away in the lush cotton fields of East Alabama. Our learning and nurturing facility is located near the charming university town of Auburn and nestled in Opelika, an eclectic and diverse southern town. In the early 1950's the community of Beauregard began its rapid growth. The large increase in population was mainly due to the proximity of industrial and manufacturing plants. Several large farms were sold and new homes and lots for trailers were developed. Ground was broken for our newest school on Lee County Road 300 in 2001 and is just a short distance from our old campus that we shared with Beauregard High School. In Beauregard we are able to discover and experience the genteel and small town traditions and still participate in progressive innovations and developments that our neighboring cities offer while still continuing to acknowledge all areas of focus and learning at the heart of Lee County Schools.

6. Planning process: Administration and faculty members have had the opportunity to provide input in all parts of the planning process for Meeting High Standards, Engaging in Continuous Improvement, and Demonstrating Quality Assurance. There are representatives from Beauregard Elementary on the district planning team who are responsible for gathering and reporting information and data. Our representatives have questioned faculty members before district meetings to receive input. Those individuals then reported to the district team.

 

 

7. Closing: The Beauregard Elementary School Team believes that every child that walks through the doors of our school is deserving and therefore should be provided with the knowledge, understandings, skills, and challenges necessary for them to reach their fullest potential. Our staff and administrative team know the critical elements needed to accomplish that goal-collaboration, data-driven decision making, direct instruction, tutorial assistance, providing arts related activities, emphasizing core beliefs and values, and dynamic leadership.  Our testing data proves it!  Our third graders consistently score far above the district, state and national averages and our fourth graders score in the high sixtieth and seventieth percentiles in all areas.  When all of us, as a TEAM-parents, students, teachers, paraprofessionals, supportive staff, community leaders and administrators, work to weave the needs of all our students-we achieve great things at Beauregard Elementary School.
