Beatrice Gilmore utilizes a collaborative approach towards education. Students, staff, parents, and community members all work together to foster an optimal learning experience for every student.

Science, social studies and health classes help to reinforce literacy skills, as well as, provide students with opportunities to think critically and apply their learning to today’s global society.
Classes in art, media, music, physical education, and world language round out the students’ weekly schedules. Additionally, basic skills instruction and a gifted and talented program assist classroom teachers in providing targeted instruction that meets the needs of all learners. Technology integration remains at the forefront this year with all students having access to their own personal laptop.
