The Beacon School offers an inquiry-based college preparatory program with technology and arts infused throughout the curriculum. Beacon emphasizes a rigorous well-rounded liberal arts education based on the principle of shared exploration and problem-solving. In assessments for graduation, students present performance-based projects to panels of teachers. Beacon offers extensive opportunities to participate in clubs, sports, community service and international travel.
Congratulations to all 25 members of the Beacon Model UN Club who attended this weekend's conference at Bronx Science. Special recognition goes to the following students who won Honorable Mention awards in their committees: Gabriel Gillen, Samantha Potter, Lenard Moxley, Charles Moxley, Emma Callahan, Marwa Khairy, and Lincoln Bernard.
B'DAT is looking for rock and soul singers and musicians for our upcoming production of Passing Strange!
Passing Strange is a play within a rock show that chronicles a young black guitarist's journey to self discovery. Along the way he screams in a punk band, parties in Amsterdam and rocks the performance art scene in Berlin.
We need YOU to make it happen.
Music Work Shops Continue today, Monday February 24 and are open to ALL Beacon students.
The BAND is also IN the show, so we're actively recruiting guitarists, bassists, drummers and key board players who are interested in performance art, developing their stage chops and playing an exciting rock, blues score.
Auditions February 25-27, 2014
Please come see Ms. Cimato if you have questions.
Do you want to host an Italian student for a week next October? 17 students (and 3 teachers) will be coming from a high school in Florence, Italy from October 3rd-12th and they will need host families!
We are looking for Beacon families who can offer a bed to one or two students and provide breakfast in the mornings and dinner at night. The Italian students would then accompany Beacon students to school during the weekdays.
We may also be taking a trip to Florence in April 2015 as part of an exchange, if you are interested please contact Lev Moscow asap at email@example.com
