Beechwood Elementary School

Driving through Fort Mitchell it is impossible to miss the tree lined street that leads to Beechwood Elementary School. What started in 1860 as a two-room schoolhouse, developed into a unique preschool through twelfth grade campus. Many students at Beechwood Elementary are born into the “Beechwood Tiger Family” since it becomes a tradition to send your child to your alma mater. Our values reflect our mission: “To provide innovative education grounded in tradition.” Beechwood prides itself on the philosophy of never becoming complacent. We believe there is always room for improvement. Throughout the years, Beechwood consistently performs as a distinguished school and has earned the titles “School of Distinction,” “Progressing”, and received national recognition as a “Title I Distinguished School.” Beechwood expects excellence from every person who walks through its doors. We follow the Positive Behavior Intervention System philosophy and hold students and staff accountable. Living up to our tradition of excellence has built confidence in our capabilities as a small independent school district. Beechwood Elementary strives to support and challenge our students as they develop their full potential academically, emotionally, physically, and socially to embody 21st century skills. We are fulfilling our school’s vision by providing the opportunity, “To inspire students to embrace responsibility, productivity, and compassion as citizens of a global community.” Since 1920, our PTSA has contributed to the success of our students by offering culturally and academically rich programs. For 155 years Beechwood Elementary has provided opportunities for our students to apply what they have learned because, “Once a Tiger, Always a Tiger!”
