The Beekman School

How Does Beekman Meet Individual Needs?

As New York City’s oldest and best provider of personalized education, The Beekman School offers small classes averaging 5 to 6 students, as well as one-to-one classes, to college prep high school students on a year-round, rolling admissions basis.  Students can begin a course at any time during the day, and be admitted on a part-time or full-time basis.

What Sets Beekman Apart From Other Schools

“I’ve done my homework and there isn’t another school like you in the whole country!”  Yes, that mother is right.  Beekman’s ability to personalize a student’s education is unmatched.  As our tag line states, “One school. Infinite possibilities.”

Although our college preparatory program follows the same guidelines as larger, more traditionally structured schools, Beekman’s combination of class sizes averaging 6 students, one-to-one courses, and distance learning provides us with opportunities to create a schedule as individualized and unique as each student’s needs.

Alumni Stories: Coco Yang, Class of 2015

My career at Beekman started in my second year in the U.S.  At first, I chose Beekman simply because I needed to attend a private high school in order to continue studying in the States. But I hoped the small-size classes could help me more than my previous public high school (which had 2500 students). By the time I entered Beekman, I appeared to be introverted because of the language barrier and did not have much of a plan for the future. With two years of help from Beekman, I am now able to study at a U.S. college and pursue a definite goal.

The NYC Gifted & Talented Symposium

The 2016 NYC Gifted & Talented Symposium (hosted by PALNYC) convened on Saturday, March 12.  It was a day for parents and educators to learn more about different teaching techniques and education options for students who fit into the gifted and talented or accelerated learning category.  I was representing The Beekman School in a curated exhibitors area, along with programs from all over the city that offer opportunities for these accelerated learners.  In hearing some of the panel topics and spe

You’re a Unique Person; We’re a Unique School!

Do you ever feel like you just don’t fit in at your school?  Mean kids, exclusive cliques, lunchroom gossip, bullying in the halls, unfriendly teachers, no one listens to you and no one cares?  Most teenagers feel that way at one time or another, but when the atmosphere at school becomes so oppressive that it’s keeping you from performing at your best, it’s time for a change.

Beekman: Teaching to the Individual

Our national school system, public and private alike, is designed for keeping a group of students as homogeneous as possible.  Even with all of the claims of “teaching to the individual” that a traditional school makes, there has to be a level of keeping everyone in the class at the same pace, leaving some students behind and holding others back.  How, then, can you truly teach to the individual?
