    "The academics are hardcore, teachers can be controversial but the English and History departments are the hardest."

    "Students don't learn through textbooks. Instead classes are led by discussions, allows for creativity, environment is very safe to ask questions. Teachers are amazing, and know their material very well. Every year students are to do a project based assessments, which is a great way to prepare for college."

    "When I reflect on the time I spent at Beacon, I can only remember the positives. Granted I am a graduate from the old building, the culture that was fostered there was one that prioritized personal and communal responsibility in and out of the school. As I am exposed to new people in my classes every semester in college, I am always grateful for the things that I have learned at Beacon academically as well as the core values that many people seem to be indifferent about."

    "The culture was very elite and there is no communication with the parents. Policies did not include the students."

    "I've learned so much and really grown as a student and person at the Beacon School. Teachers push you to do your best and your peers are your motivators. You can always go to them if you have a question or problem. The work is a lot and can sometimes be overwhelming but makes you proud of yourself in the end and allows you to realize your capabilities. I've made amazing friends for life and am so happy I went to Beacon."
