Throughout the United States, middle schools are often a division within a larger school, especially for independent schools or smaller public school districts. For example, schools are typically Pre-K through 8, 6 through 12 or Pre-K through 12.
The Beech Hill School is proud to focus exclusively on the developmental needs and challenges of middle school aged students. Every aspect of our community - size, curriculum, schedule and faculty - supports the specific needs of middle schoolers.
The strength of any school is tied tightly to the quality of its teachers. At The Beech Hill School, we take great pride in our teaching faculty, and provide them the autonomy, support, and community that make this school an ideal place to teach.
The Beech Hill School creates a foundation for achievement within its students. Thus, we need to prepare our students to be adaptable, self-aware, and resilient. How they learn is as important as the content they cover.
We support the aspirations of our students to explore options for high school, including local public high schools and independent schools. Many of our students choose to apply to independent secondary schools.
We do not require SSAT results, specifically, for admission. Rather, we ask that you submit the results of standardized testing from their current school. Some examples of testing are the NECAPs, NWEA, or the ERBs.
We currently accept applications on a rolling basis. However, to be considered in the first round of admission and financial aid decisions, families must complete the application process by January 1, 2019. Please email our admission coordinator today to begin the process.
