Where Excellence Is a Tradition

Vanderpoel students are provided with opportunities to grow and develop both academically and personally. We offer a high quality instructional program through a Common Core State Standards aligned curriculum.

Because we value Fine Arts, as an Arts Magnet school we have partnered with the Beverly Arts program to provide students with many opportunities to participate in Fine and Performing Arts programming. This is in addition to students taking courses in Spanish, Music, Physical Education, AVID, and 21st Century Technologies. We encourage you to find out more about our academic and athletic programs.
