Beachwood High School Reviews

When I first walked into Beachwood High school for my freshman year of high school I felt very welcome. As the year progressed the same feeling of acceptance stuck with me the entire time, but I realized something. It takes a lot of push to get the students voices to be heard. We have to push for things that we know would better our school and that needs to change. The other thing that Beachwood needs to work on is a better safety system, which they are doing better at this year, but something that really stuck out for the students is what we were told on part of the reasoning for closing open campus was that the person at the front lets in whoever looks like a student. This really frightened some students and we want a better safety system to be put in place.

As a brand new sophomore coming into Beachwood HS, I can assure that any student at this school is getting very high quality education that they need to succeed and thrive as a US citizen. Upon immediate admission, counselors, students, and teachers presented great gratitude and joy to know a new student would be joining the school and were all very well prepared to give me as much help as I needed to get on track with the rest of the students. I will say that if you are a new student transitioning from a lower quality school, you will have a tough time adjusting to their rigorous curriculum. They take a very high standard approach to learning beyond the par-of-the-course "critical thinking" and "hands on" approaches. I can absolutely understand why students and surrounding communities refer to Beachwood as the "public private school" in Cleveland Area.
My high school experience was like a roller coaster ride, there was a lot of ups and downs. The school seems to become more and more unprofessional each year and seems like they can't keep things under control. Most of the policies are unreasonable. The overall learning experience if you focus like you're supposed to, Beachwood High School helped me get to where I am today, most of the teachers are like mentors in my life and I appreciate it.
