Message from the Principal:

It is with great pleasure that I take this opportunity  introduce myself and to welcome you all back from what I hope was a restful summer.   I am thrilled to now call Beechwood Knoll my new home and I anticipate that this school year will be filled with hard work, collaboration, and successes on many fronts.

As I am sure you have all seen, our school has taken on quite a facelift over the summer.  The new windows are absolutely stunning from both the outside of the building as well as from the interior.  The natural light that is now within the walls of Beechwood Knoll is outstanding.  We also have a newly paved parking lot which truly enhances the front and side of the building as well and a new playground coming soon!  There have been a lot of moving parts here this summer and I am so grateful to everyone who had a hand in this process.  Our custodians here at BKS have worked hard this summer and the school looks beautiful.  I am sure you all share in my feelings of gratitude for ALL that has gone into preparing for the start of the school year.

Please don’t hesitate to reach out via email or phone if needed. I look forward to working with the students, staff and families of Beechwood Knoll!

Elementary School is an important first step in your child’s education. Quincy Public Schools are there from the first time your kindergartner picks out a book at the school library to the first grader having success in math to upper grades where students take their basis of knowledge and expand it to more advanced thinking.


At Beechwood Knoll, we strive to educate the whole child – mind, body and spirit.  We know that different children learn in different ways – and that education does not take place just in the classroom. We offer numerous before and after-school enrichment programs. For a complete list of current programs, please call the main office 617-984-8781.
