Beekman provides a specialized and flexible learning environment. My daughter loved the tutorial option in a subject where she needed particular attention.

Beekman School provided amazing acceleration and enrichment opportunities for my son in his areas of interest via their tutoring school. I was thrilled with the quality of instruction my son received in math (including Calculus), chemistry lab, and English--the three subjects he studied at Beekman. He was able to move at his own pace and to have meaningful discussions about course content with his instructors. They respected his individuality and utilized a variety of learning-styles! He loved and looked forward to going to every class at Beekman. FYI, the Beekman School was wiling to teach him calculus at 10! We were so impressed with The Beekman School!

The Beekman School is a wonderful school offering academically challenging but appropriate education for a student seeking a smaller, supportive environment. We cannot thank George Higgins and his outstanding staff enough for the education and support out child received while attending Beekman.

As a teacher, the most poignant advice I ve received is that, although I m teaching history, I must remember that I m really teaching students. The Beekman School has afforded me the opportunity to do just that. The small class size translates to knowing each student as an individual comprised of different strengths, weaknesses, and interests. This knowledge allows me to transcend the ordinary bounds of teaching to become a mentor to my students.

Beekman school is direct in its management, academics, in or out of school activities, personal interaction, and importantly the quality of its staff. As innovation facilitates our lives, it is in the same way Beekman school juxtaposes its genuine state of the art humanitarian approach. It is a school that has evolved, and hasn't lost its refined moral workmanship, towards one another. It possesses a true quality education, academically with a deep sense of value.

The Beekman School quickly brought out the best in my daughter. My teenager was suddenly enthusiastic about her projects, studying for her tests. She was communicating directly with her teachers and learning how to navigate her life as well as her academics. My daughter felt a good connection to her teachers. She met peers similar to and different from herself. The school work was challenging, but not oppressive. The program was very flexible and adaptable. The school atmosphere is friendly. My daughter said it felt like a family. The Beekman School was the first time my daughter has liked school since 4th grade!! Beekman helped put the sparkle back into her eyes. And the physics course she took at Beekman changed the way she sees the world.

Our son entered Beekman in 10th grade. He left his prior Manhattan independent middle school when it imploded academically and administratively and got sold, ultimately changing its name. Thanks to the dysfunction at that school. my son was transformed from a motivated B/B+ student when he started in 6th grade, into a cynical and defeated one whose grades plummeted. I blame myself for thinking the high school would be different. Anyway, he left behind a school without leadership, uniformly substandard, uncaring teachers (many of which are still there) and found the total opposite at Beekman. My son's old math teacher made him feel dumb and incapable of grasping geometry, but he consistently achieves A's in every math class at Beekman, regaining his mojo. Similar transformation in science where he does extremely well even in chemistry. Same story in his other subjects. No school is perfect and Beekman does lack extracurriculars and the student body is a bit of a mixed bag. The bottom line however, is that he is being academically challenged and well-prepared for the next step.

The Beekman School is a godsend! The teachers are excellent and caring, and the communication between parent/teacher is consistent. The school's administration staff is always pleasant and willing answer any questions you may have. The best part of Beekman is the small class size. No child falls behind without notice, and help is always available. Overall, this private high school is one of the best New York City has to offer.
