L.W. Beecher Museum School of Arts & Sciences Interdistrict Magnet

"Beecher, where students become lifelong learners!"
L.W. Beecher Museum Magnet School of Arts and Sciences uses a "hands-on approach" to learning, using theme based and object based studies to help students explore, apply and create knowledge in both individual and group projects. The Beecher School Community is inclusive and strives to create a culture of acceptance and belonging where all students are honored. We are a model Comer School, instructing and nurturing students through six interconnected pathways (physical, cognitive, psychological, language, social, and ethical) which lead to healthy child development and academic achievement.

How to know our school is right for your child:

  • Your child loves hands-on learning.
  • Your child is interested in science and the arts.
  • Your child is interested in museums, galleries, and other interactive resources.

About Our Theme:

  • As a Museum Magnet School of Arts and Sciences, we utilize object-based instruction and project-based learning in all subjects. Students are given opportunities to learn about the world around them through varied learning expeditions to places in the community and partner museums where they can explore, express, and elaborate their understanding of content through the creation of knowledge products, showcased in quarterly Exhibition Nights.
