The school is decent because they provide students with the knowledge and technology that would allow them to succeed. Unfortunately, some of the teachers and their methods of teaching are not sufficient for the students, ultimately allowing nothing to be learned from the class. Some teachers do an extraordinary job actually teaching the students. Overall, the school is good, but has some problems regarding the methods used to teach the students.

I loved the school as a whole and my overall experience. It is a small school which meant you were really able to connect with those around you. There was lots of encouragement to try lots of extracurricular activities, and you were always welcomed once you joined those programs. Overall, the school was great for a small-town high school experience and I loved every minute of being there.
Lots of things at Beecher are offered to students that I see aren't offered to schools that surround it. They have a great education system and AP program. Surrounding schools have a curriculum that is no where near the one at Beecher. Almost every class has at least twenty kids with at least a 4.0. Though it is high school and kids can be mean, Beecher does struggle with confronting the issue of bullying. Things are brought to the authority's attention and nothing is done. As a victim of bullying, I witnessed first hand that the authority figures at the school are political. Considering the dean is also the athletic director, athletes often slide with little to no punishment which is not fair.
