Message from Principal
Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year! What an amazing opportunity to open Beechwood Middle School and launch a tradition of excellence together with you! I am proud to be a Bengal!
Beechwood Middle School (BMS) is committed to fulfilling the vision and mission of Lexington District One to empower each child to design the future and cultivate a caring community where ALL learners are extraordinary communicators, collaborators, creators, and critical thinkers.
Through our affiliation with the International Baccalaureate and our partnership with Code to the Future, our students will experience a rigorous, inquiry-based course of study enhanced by service and authentic real-world connections. This global and holistic approach to learning will prepare our Bengals for any of Lexington District One’s multiple college and career readiness pathways as well as cultivate application of skills to guarantee continuous relevant learning.
All of our students will be provided opportunities to pursue their gifts in academics, arts, athletics or other unique abilities while at the same time developing as well-rounded young people who are creative and reflective citizens. Our core and connections course offerings provide our students experiences that foster a balanced approach to learning.
We believe that relationships are at the core of our student success. Our BMS faculty and staff are committed to advocating for ALL of our students and establishing strong connections with our families and community.
Gloria Jenkinson, Principal
