Parent: The original principal was very engaged with students and parents. She was easy to talk to and make sure students looked presentable during school hours as well. She brought belts from home for pants of some of the boys.

The Beekman School
- Private School
- New York, NY
Parent: Our teen took two 2018 summer school courses (English and math) at The Beekman School. Toward the end of the summer our student told us she would take any class offered by either of her instructors. That is high praise coming from a teen.
In addition, two of our teen’s summer school friends said that the number one draw of The Beekman School is their gifted instructors. One student attends The Beekman during the regular school year and the other was pressuring their parents to remain in the States in order to attend during the year.
The Beekman School summer and tutoring programs are worth every penny. I don’t know how they manage to make exceptional instructors the norm rather than the exception, but they do.

Senior: Long Valley Middle School, is very dear to my heart and important within my growth to becoming a man. The biggest takeaway that I can speak for is the social skills that I have learned coming from a class of 300 plus students and over 1,000 students in total between the grades of 6 and 8. This large environment allowed me to thrive with having smaller classes around 18 students while also being a larger school overall. I learned how to effectively to communicate with teachers and adults in general as the students were given more freedom than in the elementary schools which led to increased social and academic interaction between students and forming unbreakable friendships. The school overall was a perfect mix between nature and nurture allotting the students more freedom than given in the elementary schools while also developing them into fine young adults who could handle the social pressures along with the schoolwork that the high school would bring.
