Clissold Elementary School (2350 West 110th Place) Comment
We have two children at this school in primary grades, and they love going to school everyday. The montessori approach to learning is wonderful. We are very pleased with both of their teachers and paraprofessionals in the classroom, who work so hard to meet the needs of all students in their classes. One of my children is on a 504, and I was very impressed with the teacher's level of effort and concern put into keeping my child safe, happy, and challenged every day. The other is above grade level in academics, and she is still challenged by the differentiated activities and projects in the classroom. We also love the amount of field trips and the positive energy coming from both administrators. And the opportunities for parent involvement seem endless.

Construction of the Beverly Arts Center began in 1968 on the grounds of the private school at 2153 W. 111th St. and was complete one year later. Godfrey said her father encouraged her to participate in the first competitive art show there in 1983. She won first prize.
Many of the pieces that brought her acclaim will be on display at the Beverly Arts Center, which moved into a 40,000-square-foot facility on the busy corner of 111th Street and Western Avenue in 2002.
