About this school

Beacon is a school like no other, though precisely what every school should be. Beacon is a way of educating that frees minds, open hearts and releases spirits, to help children thrive in our ever changing world. One by one, at their own pace, our students become critical thinkers, problem solvers and creative explorers who are articulate, capable and fearless. Together, our students learn how to get along, help others, and lead through tolerance, compassion, empathy and altruism.
