"Majors" at Beveridge

At Beveridge, 6th grade students are given the opportunity to explore our magnet aspects to gain exposure. When they are in 7th and 8th grade, they are able to choose a "major," much like you would in a college course. They will be scheduled classes that fit into their chosen major, so they can further explore their interests and develop their talents in that area.

Magnet Program Highlights

Music

Beveridge's top-notch music groups provide opportunities for students to develop talents both at the individual and group levels. We offer classes in piano, strings, instrumental music of a variety of types, and vocal music. Music instruction at Beveridge is rigorous and comprehensive. Whether students pursue vocal or instrumental music, they will receive outstanding and personalized instruction in technique, theory, and performance. Both band and choral groups participate in study trips, performing in the community and at competitions for a broad variety of audiences. Music ensembles at Beveridge also receive excellent ratings from yearly adjudicated performances.

International Studies

Beveridge offers students a contemporary and historical understanding of cultures, languages, and systems of government and the complex relationships between them that shape the world we live in. A partnership with the University of Nebraska at Omaha's International Studies program provides opportunities for students to participate in service learning projects that focus on global responsibility for the future and patterns of consumption. Additionally, students explore life and career choices and overall value systems that will help them to be successful in a global society.

Art

Students study the history, forms, genres, styles, and media in art. From sculpting to glass fusion, students perfect their skills and use their creativity while contributing to community projects across the metro area. Students' work is judged on technique and is often displayed in venues such as the Joslyn Art Museum, Bancroft Gallery, and the Nebraska State Capital. Students also collaborate with local artists at the Hot Shops Art Center and travel to Kansas City to visit and explore its galleries and museums.

Drama

Students who aspire to make theatre a lifelong ambition, receive training in theatrical techniques including expression of the body, voice, imagination, personalizing, improvisation, external stimuli, and script analysis. Students also perform, write, and direct plays as well as learn the "behind the scenes" work of lighting, sound, costuming, and makeup. Beveridge presents three major drama productions each year. Some of the all time favorites performed in the past include "The Lion King," Bridge to Terabithia," and "Grease."

Dual Language

This unique learning experience is primarily open to students who enroll in the dual language (DL) program at the elementary level. However, other students who demonstrate fluent oral Spanish skills may join later, if space is available. DL students take a number of classes in Spanish. Subjects will vary by grade level but may include DL Math, DL Science, DL Language Arts, and DL Music Showcase. All dual language students take language arts in both Spanish and English, which supports mastery of reading, writing, and speaking in both languages. The goals of DL are that students attain high academic achievement, bilingualism, bi-literacy, and enhanced sociocultural competencies.

At Beveridge, we have various special education programs such as a Behavior Skills Program (BSP), a Deaf and Hard of Hearing Program, an Alternate Curriculum Program (ACP), and general special education services!
