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.
Beacon is run like a private school. They have a challenging curriculum which is taught by a bright, young, innovative and demanding faculty. Truly inspiring to the students who go there. I am so grateful that our daughter has the priviledge of attending this excellent school.
Beacon is great for a lot of reasons. A couple of my favorites: it teaches our kids HOW to think, not WHAT to think; and it values creativity and concern for the world we live in.
The devoted and committed teachers make this school the place that it is for learning and growing.
my son is a senior and i feel that the education and social experiences he has had there will last a lifetime!!!
Outstanding school that through challenging assignments creates an environment to encourage students to think for themselves. Succeeding while at Beacon gives the students a great advantage for the next stage of their education. Diversity, terrific faculty, creativity, and level of excellence = Beacon!
