Beacon Hill has served as a catalyst in transforming the minds and lives of students as well as promoting family and community support of the education process. During the last ten years we have serviced over 8,000 students, parents and families across 13 local school districts and communities.
In 2014-15 Beacon Hill contracted with Dallas Independent School District to provide In-school literacy tutoring for 2 of the I-2020 (Imagine 2020) schools. Much to our excitement and surprise, in August 2015 that we had been awarded funding for EIGHT additional I-2020 schools! This occurred because school principals were excited about our high success rates! The impact: We moved from serving 110 students in 2014-15 to 525 students in 2015-16. This is great news for our kids!
These days we are motivated by hearing students say "Oh! I see!" We see how their attitudes change after being around parents and students with the same goals and drive—to graduate and live meaningful, productive lives. It is amazing to see their quiz and test grades improve, report card grades change, and STAAR scores improve—“commended” scores are a real reason to celebrate! It is always on our minds that if we had not caught this child, “What road would they be on now?
