FROM the DIRECTOR...
HELLO and WELCOME! I am Mary Kessler, co-founder and director of Beehive
Schools. In this brief note I will tell you:
- WHY we are putting our curriculum online,
- What it is like,
- How it may benefit you and your student.
First, WHY WE ARE WE PUTTING THE CURRICULUM ONLINE.
Because, after having an L.D.S. dayschool in St. George, Utah, for 12 years,
and after having written much of the curriculum for it, we wanted to test our
students and see how they were doing compared to other students locally
and nationwide. The results blew us away. The students averaged 98th
percentile in reading and 92nd percentile in math and received higher than
average scores in all other subjects. We felt that if our curriculum
was that good, we needed to get it online so that others could
benefit from it.
Second, WHAT THE CURRICULUM IS LIKE.
Currently, our over 240 volumes of curriculum are in process of being
transferred to thousands of pdfs, delivering lessons from preschool through high
school. Plans are also under way to augment these pdfs with video clips and live
chat sessions. The courses are of two types: those we have written ourselves,
and those gleaned by reading "out of the best books".
Third, HOW the BEEHIVE CURRICULUM MAY BENEFIT YOU and YOUR STUDENT.
One, it is built on the word of modern prophets and apostles, concerning
education. For example, President Henry B. Erying stated: "It is clear that
our first priority should go to spiritual learning." At Beehive we start each
day with a devotional and ask that you do the same, and pray before and
after each lesson. We also ask our students to study the Book of
Mormon and one other scripture each day, as President Benson asked the
children to do; to write in their personal journals each day, as President
Kimball asked us all to do; and to perform a daily act of service, in the
spirit of President Monson's emphasis on serving. In addition to courses on
the Book of Mormon, other scriptures, journaling and service, we also
have courses on personal and family history, missionary work, church history
and doctrine and even L.D.S. classics like A Miracle of Forgiveness and
Jesus the Christ. At Beehive, we follow the words of President Eyring and
put religious education FIRST. Consequently, students form the habit of putting
the things of God FIRST, which impacts not only their present lives, but their
future lives and their eternity.
However, as much as we emphasize the spiritual, we in like manner emphasize
the academic. President Eyring also stated: "It is clear that putting spiritual
learning first does not relieve us from learning secular things. On the
contrary, it gives our secular learning purpose and motivates us to work harder
at it." Therefore, we do have excellent academics, as evidenced by our students'
test scores. This can benefit your students greatly in being well-prepared for
Finally, in addition to benefiting your student through an emphasis on
spiritual learning and excellent academics, Beehive can also benefit him by
teaching him excellent learning strategies. In our dayschool, as a new student
would come into the school who was a bit challenged or maybe considerably
challenged, we would research the situation and find ways and means -
strategies - that would help that particular student learn. Eventually, we
would teach all of our students these strategies and everyone's performance was
