The Beachmont Veterans Memorial School is an urban seaside community located just 7 miles north of Boston. The school was built in 1979 as a kindergarten through grade 8 building. Currently we are a K-5 school with several special education classes as well as an Integrated Early Childhood classroom.
Our school is multicultural and diverse with a population of approximately 380 students with a staff of over 50 faculty and personnel. Although there have been several changes in the school’s configuration since the building served as a “swing space” when new schools were being built, our commitment to quality teaching and learning and our focus on student achievement remains constant.
The Beachmont Veterans Memorial School promotes educational excellence and academic standards aligned with the Massachusetts Curriculum Frameworks and will continue to align itself to the new Common Core. All members of our school community are encouraged to strive for academic achievement and personal growth in a learning environment that encourages and fosters positive self esteem. We promote learning that is meaningful and recognize individual learning styles. We provide our students with differentiated learning instruction and cooperative educational experiences. Our school community is dedicated to nurturing a learning culture where students exercise mutual respect, take risks, and attain knowledge necessary to prepare them to become socially responsible citizens and life long learners.
Working with an understanding of clear expectations for excellence, we celebrate our achievements and hard work. Respect and responsibility are our watchwords as we work with our students to become contributing members of their community.
