Welcome to Beecher Hills Elementary where everyone learns and grows. In its 50 + years of existence, Beecher Hills boasts a continued reputation of excellence. With many accolades and commendations, Beecher has met AYP for ten consecutive years. This accomplishment is a reflection of the commitment, diligence, and hard work of teachers, staff, students, parents, the P.T.A., community and business partners and volunteers.
I have high goals and expectations for myself, staff, and students at Beecher Hills Elementary. With the integrated units that were created 7 years ago and the philosophy of cooperative learning, we were a natural to move into the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme (IB-PYP). This program has allowed us to center in on guiding questions with central themes that will create an international student. Our teachers create the themes, the inquiries, and reflect at round table settings with the whole faculty and in grade levels. Much growth has been seen in our students and the teachers.
Additionally, it is important to note that Beecher continues to be a uniform school. Current research indicates that students in schools that institute school uniforms are less distracted and more focused on learning. To this end, the wearing of uniforms will be strictly enforced. Your continued support of this initiative is vital in setting the tone of academic excellence at Beecher Hills.
Last, I am indeed excited about serving as principal of BeecherHillsElementary School. It is my vision to lead the way to continued school improvement and higher student achievement. We will use research based best practices and standards-driven instruction to transform the ordinary student into the extraordinary student- everyday teaching and learning into phenomenal teaching and learning. When you walk through the doors of Beecher Hills, you will become apart of the Beecher Family “where EVERYONE learns and grows”!
