Why Transferring Schools Can Be a Good Thing

When you hear the term “transfer student,” you often think of the new kid in town or the person who’s been asked to leave a school.  But a growing number of parents and students are choosing to follow their instincts and leave their current school voluntarily, going against the advice of friends and school professionals in order to establish a fresh start.

School Problem? Problem Solved: Beekman!

I speak with a lot of people: on the phone, in interviews, and around town.  They’ve heard bits and pieces about our unique program and want to get the story “straight from the horse’s mouth.”  Given our rolling admissions policy, our philosophy of “interview today start tomorrow,” and our focus on student-centered learning, I am frequently asked a number of questions about our student body.

Beekman: Not Just Better - Distinctive!

Virtually no other school in the New York City metro area provides the myriad of educational solutions that we provide.  Between The Beekman School and The Tutoring School (a program within Beekman), we can create an academic schedule that supports most students who are college-bound.  Whether you want to start your day late, finish your day early, study Swahili or increase your course load to graduate early, The Beekman School can tailor a program that fits your unique requirements.

What Should You Look For in an Alternative High School Program?

There’s a lot of buzz around the term “alternative high school.”  Students (and their parents) who are not performing well in a more traditional setting are looking for other educational options that don’t sacrifice instructional quality.  But what should you be looking for when researching alternative education?

Interview Today, Start Tomorrow: Beekman's Unique Admissions Process

One comment that we often hear during interviews for new students is the speed of our admissions process: interview today, start tomorrow.  Prospective parents and students come in expecting the typical lengthy application process, during which a school’s administration purports to determine whether or not the student is a good fit.  I’d like you to consider a different approach. 

No Bullying at Beekman

Sadly, bullying is on the minds of many parents and students, and why not?  Clannish and mean-spirited behavior isn’t just a product of face-to-face interaction, but also raises its ugly head in cyberspace. The anonymity of the Internet has allowed cowards to make nasty comments about students they don’t like. Recently, newspapers have reported on a 13-year-old girl who jumped to her death in Florida after being hazed and tormented by fellow students, ages 14 and 12.
