School Reviews

Beacon Country Day School was the very best decision we made for our child. I am so grateful I found the school when my child was only 3 and after my tour and spending a day in the classroom my decision was made. My child loved it. She has flourished in 2 years. She is reading entire books and she is only 5 years old. She is excelling in math, science, computers, art, foreign language and most all reading. Her love for knowledge is apparent and she loves learning new things. She does complain the school is hard and had been challenging but in a good way. If you are looking for Art, Science, Music, Drama, Reading, Math and PE but you want a huge emphasis on individualized academics that are tough and demanding (in a good way) this would be a school I would consider. It is not a sit in your chair and listen type of school. Beacon Country Day School is a loving, nurturing, anti bullying, co-ed, small class sizes and personalized education for each child. No uniforms and free before and after school care.
