Skills Class

Throughout their time at The Beech Hill School, all students take "Skills" Class.  This class is designed to help students develop the skills that are necessary for academic success, for community participation, and for a competitive edge.   (Please, read more about "Skills" class in The Concord Monitor). 

Below is a sample list of topics covered in Skills:

  • Study Skills
  • Organization
  • Note Taking
  • Time Management
  • Health & Nutrition
  • Typing
  • Computer Skills
  • Standardized test preparation
  • Interpersonal skills
  • Electronic communication
  • Budgeting and money management
  • Research

The topics covered in a certain grade will be aligned with students needs at that grade level.  For example, 6th graders will be exposed to various study methods as they are beginning middle school.  Eighth graders do some test preparation as they are looking toward the SATs, the SSATs, and other standardized tests.
