    "Our school is actually pretty inclusive- everyone participates in one club or sport of a sort. No bullying that I am aware of and no real discrimination of any sort. We used to have a small school, so everyone knew one another and hung with them for some periods of time."

    "There are a lot of options. Everyone here is able to pick whatever class they want and something they are interested in. The workload in general is a lot (which the school is known for) but it can be done somewhat comfortably everyday."

    "Beacon as a whole is such a very interesting school. Its academics are amazing and really challenge you to work hard and become a well-rounded student. There are a lot of clubs and organizations that students themselves have created. Beacon overall is a very liberated school where you can express yourself through any possible way. There are some teachers who really deeply care about students and their well-being. For example, when a student emails a teacher explaining to them that they will be absent from their class or from school, some teachers email back with a nice "feel better, see you soon," while others do not feel the need to. The student body itself is so engaging in everything that happens in the school, ranging from a new rule to a new implementation of something that students do not like, the students unite and fight for what they believe is right. Overall, I myself do not agree with certain attitudes and expressions that teachers expose, but despite that aspect of the school, if I had to do it all over again I would still choose this school."
