Beacon’s school culture is different. Take a look around and you’ll see that our students are happy to be in school; they look forward to learning. Children respect each other no matter their gender, their color, their physical appearance or their family organization. We don’t have bullies; we have students who help each other.
That’s because Beacon understands that our school culture influences each student’s success as a learner. We use a curriculum called Pathways to Life Skills to teach children the skills they need to be successful in life,
to become confident, capable and caring individuals. This social-emotional skills development is included in every component of the day and permeates Beacon’s entire culture.
The entire organization, from the administrators to the teachers and staff to the students, live this approach to education every day. Beacon teachers adjust their class schedules to accommodate and process issues as they arise so the students can learn these life lessons as they occur -- and we have the time to do so because of our longer school year. That’s why Beacon students are confident, capable children and young teens.
