Our Mission

Beechwood is a private, non-profit school of 170 students in Kinder Prep through Eighth Grade. Beechwood serves over 100 families from Menlo Park and East Palo Alto. The students’ educational efforts are guided by a highly qualified staff of 30 dedicated teachers and administrators. The Beechwood staff is supported by many volunteers from the community who contribute their time in a variety of ways.

Beechwood School admits students of any race, color, national or ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national or ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, admission policies, scholarship and local programs and athletic and other school-administered programs.
