Beacon Country Day School 5

I can’t tell you how pleased I am with the exceptional academics and behavior education. The teachers really care about the kids getting a good education and actually understanding the material. If any paper receives a low grade, the teacher works with the child to go back through the items they missed so they understand what the problems are and fully understand the topic. This way the child never continues on with a subject with only a partial knowledge of it or starts falling behind. The school truly caters to the individual child and their learning styles to ensure that each child will excel and succeed. And when it comes to behavior, I saw an immediate increase in maturity when my daughter started at Beacon. The staff and teachers coach the students on good vs. bad behavior; and all expect mature behavior from the students. There is also zero-tolerance for bullying. The staff and teachers go the extra mile to ensure students understand how to treat and respect each other.

Beacon Country Day School is a great school! After struggling in public schools for 5 years, last spring I finally had enough. I was tired of my child coming home complaining of bullying, not being able to concentrate in class because the classes were too noisy, teachers not having the time or willingness to help all the kids one on one when they would have questions and the lack of a solid curriculum. When I found out that the public school spelling tests consisted only of memorizing word lists and not teaching the kids the meaning of the words or how to use them, I knew I was done wasting my time in the public school system. So with only two months left in the school year last spring, I pulled her out and sent her to Beacon. In just two months at Beacon the knowledge and understanding my daughter gained was far beyond my wildest expectations. Even close friends of mine noticed they change in two months. Now in her first year in the middle school classes, my daughter is bringing home A’s and B’s in all her courses, has surpassed what her peers are learning in math in the public schools and is having fun learning. Yes Beacon uses the traditional grading system so you get to finally know how well they really are comprehending what they are learning instead of the ‘satisfactory’ rating system. Please, take just an hour out of your day and schedule a visit with the school and see for yourself. At Beacon, they ask to have your child come spend the day with their future class mates so they can judge for themselves if Beacon is the right choice for them before making a commitment. However, be warned, my daughter came home and said “I am never going back to public schools mom, I want to go to Beacon, it was great and they make learning fun!”.

My son went to BCDS from preschool-8th grade and now at Regis Jesuit High School which is a hard school to get into. Beacon gave my son a solid foundation for High School. He learned excellent study skills and great work ethics. All the teachers are fabulous especially the middle school teachers preparing him for high school. 99% of the students at Beacon go to Regis HS and they all say Beacon really prepared them for high school socially and academically.

Beacon Country Day School is very family oriented. The teachers are all very kind, warm, and communicate with parents on a daily basis with email, phone calls, text, and person to person. I knew every day dropping my son off there, he was in good hands especially coming from a very protective mom!

They do have a lot of homework but the students can stay after school and finish it. My children never need my help they actually can do there-own work. that is unusual!

The children are wonderful to each other. I have never seen such a loving support system in my life. The school fosters love, nurturing and kindness. These kids do not bully or act out. Highly recommend. Love the volunteer work that is done.
