Small learning groups allow each teacher to meet individual needs while encouraging each student to recognize his or her own worth. Self-esteem, academic achievement, creativity, and the joy of learning flourish in classrooms where the average class size is 15-18. The teacher/ student ratio is 1: 8. Research shows children in small classes receive much more personal attention which fosters greater achievement.
A total environment has been planned and provides state of the art facilities with classrooms for small learning groups, a gym, library, science lab, music room, and playgrounds designed for physical and recreational activities. We are located in a beautiful country setting where we encourage the children to observe wild life and explore nature.
Many small animals live on our campus in a natural habitat: protected wetlands are used for science throughout the year. Children love the animals, and gain real understanding of ecology and nature.
Programming is available Monday through Friday from 7:00 am to 5:30 pm. We invite you to use the extended day at no additional cost. Beacon Country Day School welcomes applicants regardless of their race, creed, color or national origin.
