Beacon Day School is distinctive. The difference is palpable when you walk in our doors, because our students are genuinely happy to be at school. You can see it in the way they run into the building each morning with smiles on their faces, exchanging hellos with teachers, parents, and fellow students. You can see it when students would rather stay in school than go on vacation.
Beacon's students are joyful learners because we make learning fun and relevant. Our approach ensures every child knows what it feels like to reach for something that seems difficult and to be successful. Our students are joyful because they feel safe being who they are and expressing themselves, with their teachers and their classmates. Our students are joyful because our academic pace is just right -- supporting steady growth with no burn-out -- and for more school days than any other Bay Area school.
Families appreciate the Beacon difference, too. Our extended day programs provide options for busy parents to know that their children are happily engaged and safe with people who care about them before and after school. Our flexible approach to scheduling trips or other times away from school allows families to take vacations when they want to. And no homework until grade five means you can spend your family time together in the ways you want to.
