  • Beacon is a great school. The teachers provide a warm, loving atmosphere while the curriculum provides success. My son has been there since Kindergarten and is now in the 8th grade. The teachers are wonderful and available to both students and parents. We have been very happy at the school.

  • We have been at Beacon for the last 6 years and are very happy with the outstanding quality of teachers, curriculm, administration and parent community. We have 2 children at Beacon, one in the early years and one starting the middle school experience. They are both different in how they learn and what they need to be challenged and happy, at Beacon they really focus on the entire child and it shows. Because the class sizes are small, we are constantly talking with the teachers to get feedback on their progress and together work towards supporting the needs of each of our children. Sometimes as a parent you are at a lost for where to go next, with the Beacon teachers and administration we have a partner in figuring out how to continually challenge our children and help them to grow up with confidence and love.

  • Beacon is an excellent, warm, inviting, friendly school with a rigorous academic program. The teachers make learning fun and instill the desire to learn. Plus, these teachers are very involved with the children and know each child inside & out and are always available to speak with daily.
    Beacon is like a large family with children and parents fully involved in activities that support learing and after school fun activities.
    The children are very supportive of each other, respectiful and welcoming of new classmates. My child is very happy, loves to go to school and is excelling. My only complaint is that Beacon doesn't go to 12th grade.

  • I have two boys attending middle school. We are very happy to have found Beacon. It offers middle schoolers the opportunity to learn in a close cupportive student community without the distraction of the peer pressures that you usually find in middle school environments. The academics are rigorous and will prepare them for any high school they wish to attend. We are very happy.
