Beacon is kind of a mixed bag. It's a decent school overall. However, so far I feel the teachers we have had are somewhat uncaring. They do the minimum required and if your kid is struggling it's kind of your and your kid's problem as far as they seem to be concerned. They seem to be very big on independence very early on in the 6th grade. I guess I would say if your kid never has any trouble with school you will probably be perfectly content, but if your child has challenges in school be prepared for a rough ride and little to no support from the school.

My experience has been similar to the previous reviewer. Poor communication is definitely an issue. In my opinion there is too much homework for some. Some kids are getting hours of homework every night and on weekends. My child is having difficulty in math and it was difficult to get help from the teacher. The elementary school my child attended in this district was wonderful. The administrators at the school are pretty good, but overall Beacon has been a huge disappointment. I really expected better from a Cape District school. However academically the school performs...test scores are good, so I guess that's all that matters.

This school has let us down from the day we walked into register. Information is never forthcoming and its like drawing teeth to find out the most basic information. Other schools in the district are proactive in informing parents about opportunities, events, and other information. Unless its a pre-recorded call about sports news, then I usually hear about everything after its happened. This is despite adding myself to the suggested text information groups, facebook pages, and apps. Every time I miss something I'm told after the fact that I should have been on this or that particular list or app to have found the information. We had a really lovely choir concert last night, but I was only told the start time on the report card. There was zero information outside of this. My daughter is doing well at school. Academically she seems to be doing appropriate and challenging things, but she has also brought home a few age inappropriate books from her Language Arts teacher, which I seem to have no way to prevent. This school may very well be an excellent place of learning, but its complete lack of communication means I'll never know.

The staff and administration are amazing! They not only support their students academically and emotionally but they challenge them to do their best every day. Beacon will be my slide school of choice for the rest of my children as well. Thank you all the staff!

Beacon Rocks! Everyone's nice and everyone knows each other. They make you feel at home and I wouldn't want to go anywhere else.

I love the school and I think that because of their amazing commitment to the children is their secret to being the best they can. They have a wonderful sports program and are known to be honest and true when competing. this school is but 3 years old and they have state of the art tecnology and and a five star group of educators. This is one of the best schools in the area.

I love this school, but now they will have two new middle schools in this district, and the current one will become a 9th grade academy to prepare students for the change into high svhool without pressure. I love the pprincipals, who are very much involved with the students, and do not shun them, or refer to them as a student, but instead calls on each one by their name...(very personal, like family)
