The Beekman School Reviews
The small class sizes make a difference!
I came to The Beekman School after teaching at a public high school for ten years and the difference was like night and day. At the public school, classes were large and impersonal with little time to form meaningful one-on-one relationships with students or assess individual students' needs. At Beekman, however, I feel empowered as a teacher. The small class sizes enable me to get to know my students' strengths and weaknesses and vary my teaching accordingly. All of the teachers I work with take pride in what they do and enjoy coming to work. This is a testament to the positive learning environment the school provides.
