"People often ask us: What does The Beekman School do? Our answer is always, what don´t we do?”
The Beekman School is the only school among NYC independent high schools, which offers students such an extensive variety of learning options -- delivered in a variety of formats and combinations (including small class size, on-site, at-home, and online tutoring, afterschool support, flexible scheduling, rolling admissions, advanced and remedial courses, test preparation, etc.) -- in order to meet students´ unique needs and objectives, both within and beyond the classroom environment, no matter what the level, pace or unique circumstances. We are able to work around a student´s schedule and fluctuating demands by offering any course, at any time, anywhere -- all facilitated by our highly-qualified and dedicated faculty.
We've understood students' potential for over 90 years and have been embracing individual differences and harnessing the power of personalized instruction since our founding in 1925. It´s back then that our founder identified that an intimate environment is a key component for quality education. We like to think of our distinctive townhouse setting as one of the secret ingredients for creating strong teacher-student bonds and peer relationships that bring out the best in all students.”
