    "Excellent school that helps students find their inter strengthens and passion. Workload is manageable. The school is challenging as it should be since its one of nyc best public high schools. The teachers and admin staff are encouraging and supportive of the student. Excellent school!"

    "Overall it's a hard school a lot of writing and test and most students already tool most of the regents before entering 9th grade including me. Plus the school doesn't take regents because it's to easy they say so instead we take public based assessments. So a lot of 20 pg papers and projects and stuff but it's a really fun school"

    "Many of the upperclassmen teachers at Beacon are very knowledgable about their subjects because they've been teaching for many years now. New teachers were introduced this past year for the freshman grade and I don't know much about them. However, myself and many of my peers have found it easy to have fun in the classroom while learning, for example with Ms. Ratcliffe (Spanish) and Mr. Miller (History). However there's always exceptions."

    "I think that the teachers put a lot of effort but there are some that don't challenge the students enough. All of them have a lot of knowledge and so try to help the students understand through tutoring one on one or in class."
