The school is great because it is in a great community. Needless to say, there are a lot professionals who chose to live there. Thinking of parents with good job and post gradudate degree, you no double it helps to make the school great. Yes, it is very competitive. My kid is going to be 7th Grader this Fall. A lot of his GT classmates have taken CBE. It is feeding SLHS, so kids are better get prepared.

Coming from out of the country with ICGSE, my son do need to adjust to how things are here in Katy. He love the school, most of the teacher are good, I love the choir teachers, I think they're one of the best. 1 thing that is still a pinch point are those "bully" and "racist" students and I regret to inform that when I try to communicate this, there are no direct feedback from the 6Gr AP. Luckily the situation improved, or else I would personally go to the principal.

Beckendorff is the one school that does live up to the reputation of schools that are located on the south side of I-10. Specifically, the students can be very difficult to manage. However, the faculty members are less professional and organized than those at other Cinco Ranch/Seven Meadows schools.

Beckendorff is an excellent school! I have two children enrolled there and theu both LOVE their school. I do not believe that there is more work than they can handle there are plenty of opportunities for them to get tutorials from their teachers during advisory and sometimes after school. The teachers put in every effort to hsve your child succeed. KatyISD is the place to be!

I highly recommend Beckendorff JH. My daughter is very, very happy there. Teachers are hands-on REMARKABLE, flawlessly putting their high credentialed qualities to the ultimate test. This is a luxury for every student (& parent!). After all, we're talking about a public sch. No guesswork here, as to the reason(s) this sch ranks top 1% in the state.

Prior to pulling our son from priv sch & investing in our public school tax $, we researched midd schs for >2 yrs. "Beckendorff will s-t-r-e-t-c-h your child's mind." I was told over & over by peer parents. Wow, those parents WEREN"T kidding! Apparently, Beckendorff is proud of this fact. My son is GT & we went w/the half load GT classes vs. going full throttle w/every single content area. He takes a combo PreAP & GT. Parents will immed. detect a curriculum overlap in the 2 programs. This makes it very nice overall. Just be ready, & PREPARE YOUR CHILD. For this is def. a cold reality & a new normal, replete w/above standard expectations & responsibility. The HW load can be described as overkill--but we wouldn't have it any other way. I'm confident my son will eventually thank us for enrolling him in an above level quality education.

Beckendorff is one of the best schools, but they work their students too much/hard. Their teachers are very friendly, though.

Beckendorff is academically a top notch junior high school. High school credits are offered in eighth grade to help the students maximize their learning potential. The facility is beautiful and is well organized for each grade level. The teachers of BDJH are very caring and ensure that each child is aware of classroom expectations and assignments. Extra curricular (fine arts) activities are excellent. It is a great school, with a great environment for children to learn.

The academic program is just excellent - the classes are divided in A, AP and GT. There are music (orchestra, band, choir), art (drama) and sports(volleyball, basketball, golf, tennis, track, etc) activities available and the set-up is great. The communication and the involvement of the parents is very effective.
