open minded , student centered , research based, fosters independent and critical thinkers and leaders ,performance based assessment is great preparation for college,
The teachers are amazing and always accessible and the students are all very friendly. It's a great school!
Our son is so happy at Beacon. He loves the teachers, students and all the sports and clubs they have. We are thrilled that he is at Beacon and is so happy there.
Excellent academics, a program that stimulates kids to think and question, and not simply to memorize, promotes involvement in their social environment, encourages their creativity...
The teachers are amazing. I learned so much. I feel so much smarter than my friends at college. It really teaches you how to express yourself well and gets people interested in academics.
I will never forget my Beacon teachers - they are all kind, challenging, and inspiring. I am now at a very rigorous university and feel over-prepared for the work. Students at Beacon are some of the luckiest in the country.
Beacon nurtures and celebrates the individual for their unique gifts and personalities. Not just grades, not just sports, but for being kind, and curious, and the kind of person who would walk up to you your first day at school and ask you to sit with his crowd at lunch.
I started my counseling career at Beacon and I was in awe every day of the extraordinary collaboration between passionate faculty and eager, open-minded, talented students. It's an extraordinary place to learn!
Stimulating intellectual environment; great students and fantastic hip teachers.
Beacon has enthusiastic, caring teachers who have given my daughter (now a senior) excellent preparation for college
Because, along with a hip reputation that the kids dig, it delivers intellectual rigor, caring teachers and outstanding extracurricular experiences.
It doesn't pigeonhole kids. They can explore everything through a progressive curriculum. For smart kids who have many interests.
fabulous education, great teachers and diverse student body - great for the arts!!
Beacon High School is the only school my son has never complained about going to ... he gets up every day at 6 AM and spends an hour each way on the train to get there and back and after 4 years he still LOVES THE PLACE TO PIECES. Bless Beacon for creating an atmosphere where every teenager can be himself and live up to his potential and fit in, regardless of whether he is a nerd, a jock, an artist, a kid with big dreams or just a kid who wants friends and meaningful classes in a caring environment!
Because it offers a realistic challenge to each student, according to their talents and abilities, and backs it up with powerful teaching.
The teachers are remarkable: they engage the kids, teach them in the context of the real world, and have very high standards. My 11th Grade son loves it, and so do I.
Beacon is small and nurturing yet has all the offerings of a large school. The teachers are full of contagious passion.
My daughter loves going to school and is getting a fantastic education.
Beacon is great! the teachers are enthusiastic and well-prepared; students feel supported and excited about learning, they are respected.
Beacon teachers open doors and present their students with a world of ways to think and explore.
