Beachmont Veterans Memorial School Profile

“Educating Tomorrow’s World Together”

The Beachmont Veterans Memorial School is located in Revere, Massachusetts, an urban seaside community 7 miles north of Boston. The original school was built in 1979 as a kindergarten through grade eight building; however, the building is now Pre-K through grade 5, including 3 Small Learning Group classrooms and 3 PDD classrooms as well as an Integrated Early Childhood classroom. We have full day kindergarten. We are entering our eighth year in partnership with the Bay State Reading Institute which fosters a three tier reading model and has encouraged implementing the position of a Reading Coach. Our school is multicultural and diverse and has an enrollment of approximately 380 students with a staff of 30 faculty and personnel. Although there have been several changes in the school configuration and of the population, our commitment to quality teaching/learning, and our focus on student achievement remains constant. This year our staff is receiving professional development training in ANet and Professional Learning Groups.

The Beachmont Veterans Memorial School promotes educational excellence and academic standards aligned with the Massachusetts Frameworks. 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.


Vision

Vision

Our school community is multicultural and diverse. We celebrate this rich tapestry of heritage and aspirations and remains united in our efforts to realize the full intellectual, social, and physical potential of every child. In this endeavor, we shall maintain a safe environment that nurtures curiosity, dignity, and the promotion of social responsibility.

Our vision impels us to empower all members of our educational community in the decision-making process. The achievement of excellence requires the dedication, support, and understanding of all individuals.

High expectations of achievement is the focus for all our students. We will use a broad range of instructional methodologies with a diverse, creative, and academically challenged curriculum to ensure student success. We will support one another in the development of these skills and curriculum and will hold ourselves accountable.

Through the use of innovative technology, we will encourage and support our staff to implement new educational opportunities in order to educate tomorrow’s world together.

REQUIRED COMPONENTS OF SCHOOLWIDE PROGRAMS

Under Section 1114 (b) (1), a schoolwide program must include the following components:

2. Schoolwide reform strategies that:

Provide opportunities for all students to meet the state’s proficient and advanced levels of student academic achievement described in Section 1111(b)(1)(D).

Use effective methods and instructional strategies that are based on scientifically based research that:

i Strengthen the core academic program in the school.

ii.Increase the amount and quality of learning time, such as providing an extended school year and before- and after-school and summer programs and opportunities, and help provide an enriched and accelerated curriculum.

iii Include strategies for meeting the educational needs of historically underserved populations.

Include strategies to address the needs of all students in the school, but particularly the needs of low-achieving students and those at risk of not meeting the state student academic standards who are members of the target population of any program that is included in the schoolwide program, that may include:

i. Counseling, pupil services, and mentoring services.

ii. College and career awareness and preparation, such as college and career guidance, personal finance education, and innovative teaching methods, which may include applied learning and team-teaching strategies.

Measures to include teachers in the decisions regarding the use of state academic assessments in order to provide information on, and to improve, the achievement of individual students and the overall instructional program.

9.Activities to ensure that students who experience difficulty mastering the proficient or advanced levels of the state academic assessments shall be provided with effective, timely additional assistance that shall include measures to ensure that students’ difficulties are identified on a timely basis and to provide sufficient information on which to base effective assistance.
