come by bus from surrounding schools. We have 30 regular grade classrooms,
7 specialist teachers, 7 Special education teachers, a Counselor, a certified
Librarian, 1 Assistant Principal, a Consultant and Education Mental Health
Worker. We also have 8 Supportive Service Assistants who support instruction
in classrooms. To support school climate and provide safe environment,
we have 6 Noontime Assistants, 2 Non-teaching Assistants and 2 School Police
Officers. Our educational experience is supported by the Beacon Family
Center, which is partnered with us to provide a number of social services
and after school programs for our students.
