Looking back on my years at Beckman, I see many things I over looked that were amazing. The teachers all went out of their ways, the school had a very home-like feel to it. The administration always made you feel safe in whatever seat you were in. The athletics are some of the best in the state at Class 2A. Seeming to always to be competing for team and individual state championships. While at Beckman I was involved and a contributing factor to Three State championships and two state runner-ups. The way they stress the importance of education, allows one to be ready for college with the way they do test and the way they push the students to grow within themselves. At Beckman they give the students every opportunity to find themselves. With successful sports teams, along with being one of the leading research schools in the country. Still not including our successful FFA program which deals with Agriculture.

Teachers work well with students one-on-one. We are able to celebrate our Catholic religion in a safe environment. At Beckman, not a lot of college courses are offered which is a downside to going to a private school, but there are still some courses available. Athletic teams are very successful at Beckman with skilled coaches. Beckman also offers clubs and other extracurricular activities that are very beneficial to students. AP classes are offered for students that excel. I moved from Minnesota in seventh grade and was so nervous about going into a new school in Junior High. Junior High is a time when you already feel so out of place and that's without having to start all over. Right from the beginning, everyone in my grade and the faculty welcomed me. The students, teachers, and faculty at Beckman are the people that helped me grow and develop into the person I am today. Beckman Catholic is a great place and will forever hold a special place in my heart.
My favorite thing about Beckman, being that it is a Catholic school, is getting the opportunity to attend mass every week with my peers. We pray before every class period and visit the chapel often. Also, we recently raised 7 million dollars that we used to upgrade and build new facilities. Our community is very involved in extracurricular activities and are very supportive. Our teachers are easy to work with and very helpful when needed. Almost every student is involved in one or more sports because we have very successful programs that students want to be a part of. Our alumni are great leaders and students try to take after their actions.
