Greetings Parents, Students, Community Members, & Friends!

We are pleased that you have taken the time to visit Beecher High School's webpage.  I trust that the content you find will be valuable and informative.  We continue to make strides in improving all facets of the educational system, from a strong, nationally recognized academic curriculum taught by exemplary teachers to a co-curricular program that is competitive with the top high schools in the state.  Beecher High School has a strong tradition of producing graduates who are a reflection of our community.

Our goal at Beecher High School is to produce quality men and women who are prepared to succeed in a changing world.  We are interested in instilling citizenship, scholarship, and leadership skills so they are prepared for college, careers, and life upon leaving high school.  Beecher High School is committed to excellence and offers a rigorous curriculum that challenges students at all levels.  However, we cannot accomplish these goals without the help of parents, community members, and businesses.  I encourage you to get involved in the lives of our students and invest in our future!

Communication is paramount to the success of our students and I pride myself in being available to all constituents.  My door is always open, and you are welcome to contact me at (708) 946-2266 x1300 or

Go Bobcats!
