    "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."

    "As the Department of Education is gradually comforming to the CommonCore way of teaching, Beacon has been at risk for changing in a way that would destroy the liberal arts, more deeply and critically thinking way teachers have been teaching their students for years. We don't take regents, which I love, because our PBA's are more focused on critically analyzing and presenting our ideas while making an argument for history and english, and then we have tests that match up to what we've actually learned in sciences and maths instead of using a book that doesn't allow creative learning. However, changes could be made in the future, unfortunately."

    "The school is full of very creative and intelligent students and staff. Additionally a lot of the people come from different backgrounds introducing new ideas and ways of thinking."
