Beacon Hill International School PTA

Beacon Hill International School PTA

When you visit Beacon Hill Elementary School, the term "a world of learning" takes on new meaning. The richness and diversity of the surrounding community is reflected in the faces of the students who fill the classrooms. Over 86% of our students are students of color and over 32% speak English as their second language. More than two thirds of the students are eligible for free or reduced lunch programs. Many of our parents are new immigrants to the United States. They come from Vietnam, China, Laos, Mexico, Guatemala, Somalia and others and struggle to understand this new and complex culture.

To many, this level of diversity, poverty, and language and cultural barriers might seem overwhelming. Certainly, Beacon Hill Elementary faces unique challenges not present at most schools. But it is this richness of diversity that lies at the core of the Beacon Hill family. PTA meetings are simultaneously translated into Chinese and Spanish. Multiple generations live under the same roof. Grandfathers walk hand in hand with their grandchildren to school. Dragons dance through the halls on Chinese New Year bringing luck and prosperity. Newsletters and parent notices are translated by a hard working bilingual staff, dedicated to reaching out to all members of our community. Beacon Hill's diversity is not a hurdle; it is the heart of our global family.

Beacon Hill Elementary (K-5) is located in the Beacon Hill neighborhood of Seattle offering full-day Kindergartens, team teaching in an Open Concept space, and English-as-a-Second language specialists as well as many other support services.

Our curricular focus is one of integration, balance, and high expectation. We offer a balanced literacy approach to reading instruction in which many reading choices are offered to our students, and conversations about literature and comprehension are an important element of instruction. Our other curricular areas include math with a focus on problem-solving and higher-level thinking skills' hands-on, interactive science, writing across all subject areas; and a strong program of extra-curricular subjects of art, music, and physical education.

[02/08/17]   What to do on a rainy Wednesday afternoon? Valentines for Vets! Elizabeth: Wish List

"It's so cold out! We have some families living in motels and other less-than-ideal settings and they have mentioned that, aside from being kinda gross, the pillows and blankets provided are not adequate in warmth/number. If you are feeling generous, you could pop over to the wishlist and send a blanket or set of pillows our way! With your help we can make sure all our kids are warm and well-rested enough to learn -- and of course, to change the world! Post-election, we already have a Save the World Club, a No Littering Club, and halls festooned with anti-bullying drawings, so I feel like we're in good hands." Universal Wishlist for Elizabeth.
