Beachwood has a variety of classes to offer - both regular, Honors and AP. We have a phenomenal EXCEL/TECC program so there are options for everyone to find their niche. We have tons of clubs and extracurricular activities that matches just about anyone's interests from sports to plays to robotics to cultural clubs - you name it. We have small classes so you have lots of one-on-one with your teachers and the school and teachers make themselves available for anyone to come in and talk if they need extra help. You couldn't ask for a better school system and people.

BHS has great teachers, however, parents considering this school should be aware of the "Beachwood bubble." The location and small size of the school causes lots of students to become sheltered and unaware of the scale of the world, with all of its possibilities and its diversity of people. In addition, I did not feel prepared for college when I finished, as my advisors kept quitting their positions and getting replaced by new advisors throughout the years, making it so that I and other students didn't have sufficient time for our advisors to learn about us and provide us with guidance for college.
I love how well they prepare us for college- they truly show us the rigor of college through the material and courseload, and many of the teachers not only teach what is necessary, but also engage in discussions of what the real world is like, whether it be political or cultural, and teach us meaningful lessons about life in general and how there are so many things that occur beyond our awareness. The administration aims to make us realize our potential and give us the opportunity to fight for what we believe in, in that they strive to show that it doesn't take a huge group to make a difference in the world.
