Returning student orientation is on Tuesday, August 15th at 6:30-8:00 pm.

There are always new things happening each school year (and this year is no different!) so even if you have been here for years it is still a great idea to come. We'll see you there!

New student orientation is on Monday, August 14th at 6:30 pm.

We strongly encourage you to attend. Topics covered will include uniform, behavior, drop off/pick up procedures, and CoolSIS instructions to name a few. There will be a question and answer period and light refreshments. We look forward to seeing you there!

Dear Students,

The purpose of the BSTA dress code is to create a safe and orderly environment, instill discipline, and eliminate the competition and distractions caused by varied dress styles. Students of BSTA are expected to observe modes of dress, styles of hair, and personal grooming, which support the learning environment. Students will not be allowed to enter the school if they are not wearing the proper uniform. Please cooperate by displaying modesty and neatness in appearance, and take pride in these uniforms by keeping them neat and clean.

Thank you for your cooperation.

Hanifi Oguz, Executive Director

Dear Students and Parents,

We believe that education is a shared responsibility and that the successful operation of a school depends on the cooperation of everyone concerned: students, parents, and staff. An important goal of the Beehive Science & Technology Academy is to create a partnership among the members of this triad. Each of us is responsible for doing our part to make our school a place where we can work and play together in harmony.

Beehive Science & Technology Academy is a reflection of all of us. All of our policies are intended to provide a safe and orderly environment that will be conducive to learning. Our faculty and staff look forward to sharing their expertise in academics, special programs, and extracurricular activities. We encourage you to get to know your school, its programs, activities, and schedule. Become an active participant in our school. Get involved through classes, clubs, and activities.

To achieve our goals, every member of the Beehive Science & Technology Academy must respect the rights of other members of the community to learn. This means creating an environment that is physically, emotionally and intellectually safe, orderly, and conducive to learning. The information in this handbook provides the guidelines for all of our behaviors and attitudes that will create a positive environment in which each student, parent, and teacher can contribute and learn. It is an essential reference book describing what we expect and how we do things. Read it carefully, discuss it with your parents, and let it act as a guide for your effective involvement in all parts of the school. It has been written to provide you and your parents with the information that will make your year purposeful and rewarding in every aspect. Keep this handbook because you will use this information throughout the school year.


Hanifi Oguz, Executive Director
