    The Beachwood School system is excellent. My 3 sons attended Beachwood schools. Two of my sons completed Grammar and High School and one son Grammar school in Beachwood school system. All 3 are attending college. One son will be graduating Magna Cum Laude from Christian Brothers University in Memphis Tn in 2007. After graduation he will be attending Law School. I attribute my children's success to the wonderful teachers of Beachwood.

    Beachwood is most likely the top school in Ohio. Not only is it a great place to learn it also has great athletic teams. The facilities are also state of the art and the new middle school is amazing. If you're looking for a new place to live put Beachwood on your list!

As a National Blue Ribbon Award High School BHS and the Beachwood Community are proud of their teaching staff and administration. We are proud of its student body and commitment to excellence.

    Moving to Beachwood 3 years ago was the best thing I ever did for my son who is now in the 10th grade. It is a great school system with very professional teachers and support staff.
