Students in Kindergarten through grade eight will be interviewed and tested by the principal. The testing fee is $75 which is applied to the registration fee when the student is accepted at the school. Testing may be waived for students entering Kindergarten. Beacon Hill School reserves the right to exclude any student whose academic or behavioral records indicate the need for a different learning environment than Beacon Hill School offers.
The Elementary Department consists of Kindergarten through grade five. The Middle School consists of grades six through eight. The Elementary Department and the Middle School offer an individualized, stimulating program in a safe, supportive environment. Our enhanced calendar consists of 212 school days.
Student achievement is a top priority at Beacon Hill School. Toward this goal, we believe in keeping our classes small so that the needs of each individual can be met. We cap classes at 22. Our student body has traditionally scored better than the local public schools and above the national average on the Stanford Achievement Tests.
Our academic program consists of English, reading, social studies, science, and mathematics as well as the special subjects of computers, Spanish, art, physical education, and music. Our curriculum meets and exceeds all requirements of both the State of Florida and Broward County. Our curriculum is flexible and allows the needs of the individual child to be met through creative, hands-on activities. Our elementary classes are self-contained, and in middle school classes are departmentalized.

Communication with Parents
Effective schools involve parents in the educative process. Formal and informal parent-teacher conferences and telephone calls will keep parents apprised of their child’s progress. Weekly reports, interim reports, and report cards are formal evaluations sent home. A bimonthly newsletter, “Highlights,” keeps parents informed as to events taking place at the school.
