The Beechwood EDGE



The EDGE Program is a Pre-K through 12 initiative at Beechwood Independent Schools. The Program is the result of many hours of research and planning with industry and post-secondary institutions as well as a culmination of research in districts and schools across the United States and abroad. Our research uncovered a number of issues facing business, industry, and colleges: students and new employees lacked certain skills including critical thinking, problem-solving, long term planning, and creative thinking. After developing a Strategic Plan, the district moved forward with creating Core Concepts that would guide curriculum and experiences to give these children the skills for a 21st Century work environment. Our students still receive a solid foundation in science, English, social studies, and mathematics, but each grade level has a series of experiences including the Elementary, Seminar in the Middle School, and the High School Minors, that give students their EDGE.
