As the proud Principal of Ethel Koger Beckham K-8 Center, I want to welcome you to our school! It is an honor to work among such highly qualified and dedicated staff as well as our amazing students and supportive families. We are honored that you have entrusted your children to us and can be confident in knowing that your child’s safety, academic progress and emotional well-being are our priority.

We take great pride in the exemplary learning environment, high standards and expectations, that have always been a staple at our school, thus earning us the designation of “A” School by the Florida Department of Education for the past 18 years. This school year, we are pleased to announce that the US Department of Education has awarded our school with the much-coveted National Blue Ribbon School designation in the category of Exemplary High Performing School for 2019. We believe that the success of our students and school depends on all of our stakeholders; the parents, teachers, staff, students and the community. Each stakeholder has an important role and when all of us come together, continued success will be achieved.

As we celebrate our success, be confident in knowing that our faculty and staff will continue to be dedicated to your child’s progress and committed to our school mission of "Nurturing Every Child's Potential.”

I am committed to working with all of our Beckham families, students, faculty and staff as we continue on the path of new achievements and student success.


Cecilia C. Sanchez, Principal
