Our program will challenge your child to the fullest and reward your child with a high quality learning experience. Beacon Hill’s Honors Program is designed to promote a rigorous academic experience for talented, intellectually curious, ambitious, and motivated
students. Honors courses emphasize critical thinking, intensive analytical writing, speaking, the use of primary source material, and information literacy and research skills. Some scholarships available.
Beacon Hill School differs from most Broward County Schools. We do not adhere to the September 1st cutoff date for placement in each grade level, rather we use a cutoff with December 31. This, however, will necessitate special arrangements with the county schools should a transfer occur. Additionally, we have an enhanced calendar. All students must wear school uniforms. Our uniform contact is Ibiley.
The school is comprised of three departments: The Early Childhood Department, the Elementary, and Middle School.
