Mission Statement

Our mission is to provide a rich, stimulating, diverse, and caring learning environment. Everyone here celebrates the growth and success of our students. Everyone here cares and takes the time to invest in the individuals that walk through our doors. However, we cannot do this important work alone! Beacon is  very fortunate and thankful for the support it receives from incredibly engaged parents, families, and  partnerships from throughout the district.

Fast Facts

8000 square feet of shared space with Anchor!

Beacon was completed and opened in February 2019. It is a "twin" building with Anchor, and they share two flexible and collaborative spaces between them. Beacon students moved up the hill from Bates, which now houses Community Education programs and DCS Administrative offices.
