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!
The Teachers have a wonderful curriculum to work with. It is highly acclaimed, proven and works. The teachers are super amazing because they care and they are not overwhelmed. The teach the whole child and they love the kids. The best Teachers we have ever had. WE love the Beacon Teachers.
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.
I notice someone has targeted the school and written a few negative reviews about the playground and or bathrooms. We have never ever in six years had one issue with the school. Every once in a while a crazy parent comes a long but other than that i have never seen a more loving, nurturing, anti bullying and prestigious academic school. The older children are incredible role models and the school is well run and well monitored. Nothing I mean nothing concerns me about the school. If your looking for a tough and challenging academic environment, nurturing, love and wonderful family like atmosphere - Beacon Country Day School - is the best school for any gifted or high achieving child. If your child is not gifted that is ok - the school works with each child on a individual level. I have never seen anything like it. My children love the school, can't wait to go everyday and they love the playgrounds. That is right! Two playgrounds one for the younger kids and one for the older kids. The school has gourmet lunch brought in everyday or you can bring your own. The teachers each with the children. It is wonderful. The French, Computers, PE, ART and Sciences are unbelievable. I absolutely recommend Piano after school and ART. The after school art program is highly advanced and wonderfully organized. If you are looking for the newest of new schools this is not the school for you. If your looking for proven success in a rigorous academic environment this is the one! I highly recommend this school.
