This site aims to inform and mobilize Beverly parents to take an active role in all issues related to the funding and operation of the city's schools. It was launched in the spring of 2008, when the city saw its first-ever override attempt fail, followed by the closure of a nearly-new elementary school. Subsequent years have seen further cuts that have led to larger class sizes across the district. While the opening of an impressive new high school and plans to replace the city's aging middle school give us reason to be optimistic, the school community must be ever vigilant in demanding appropriate school funding by city and state governments, and better community communications from the district and School Committee.

Beverly High PTSO to Hold Annual Fundraiser

The BHS Parent Teacher Student Organization has asked us to post the following notice for their upcoming fundraiser. With the opening of the new building less than 3 months away, all Beverly parents—even those of elementary school students—should take an interest in what is happening at the high school, and show their support:
Beverly High’s Parent Teacher Student Organization will celebrate the momentous opening of the new building with their only fundraiser for the year - a Golf Outing & Dinner/Auction Social.  This event will be held Thursday, October 14 at the Beverly Golf & Tennis Club with golf beginning at 12:30pm and dinner/auction/social at 5:30pm.

This is an exciting time for all citizens! Founded in 1858, BHS has a proud tradition of educating the children of Beverly. Enrolling almost 1300 students, BHS offers strong academic programs with over 92% of students going on to two or four year colleges.  BHS was listed in the September 2010 issue of Boston Magazine on their "Honor Roll" for accomplishments in technology.

We need your help!  Please consider a sponsorship or donation to support Beverly High School.  From student arts & enrichment, school library resources, science and technology programs, enhanced teaching resources, guest speakers, career seminars and college fairs, proceeds will benefit all students.
