As a young teacher, Beacon taught me to see the world through a different set of eyes. Classrooms here were unlike all other classrooms I had been in. The small class sizes let me get to know each student individually. As a class, we grew as a community of learners where the teacher questioned, wondered and searched for answers alongside the kids. Their insight and perspective mattered; we were learning to learn together.
As a Beacon parent, I am still amazed at the system that teaches my sons to question instead of accept “facts.” They make sense of things by making connections with what they know. Beacon is a second home where they feel safe to explore and grow. I love that they pursue their interests, that they believe they matter and that they can make a difference in the world.”
