Beacon High School 5

Beacon's brand new school building is amazing. The school is rigorous but creative -- with strong sports, drama, film making and music programs. The students are taught to think and the self- motivated and disciplined ones tend to do best. It is a supportive environment with terrific teachers and parents. The extracurriculars are many and students are encouraged to start clubs that are of interest but do not currently exist. It has a private school feel because of its careful screening and overall excellence and has a fairly diverse student body. This is a much-loved school!

Every school has it's ups and downs, but as an optimistic, mature and persistent student, I found this school to be a great asset to take with me into the future. I've had many great memories and am going to college this fall, I'm going to miss it.

I am happy with Beacon schools.It is not without it's issues though. I have 2 very motivated students, and my oldest was just accepted to an ivy league university. But there is a strong lack of leadership from the top. This school seems to be run by the teachers, but it works as they for the most part are very dedicated. Guidance department as a whole is completely lacking. No recommendations as to what schools to look at at all. Fellow honer students are going to mid to low range colleges, and I just don't understand why. The new school is a very nice facility, and the honers program is challenging and quite good. Nice diversity of students both racially and financially.

As an Autistic kid, with all my experience of the Hudson Valley, the racism can be felt here at Beacon High School like no other place. I thought when I was done with Rombout it would be an escape. Boy was I wrong, Here's Rombout II just a little bit more mellow.
