Superintendent's Message


Beach Park School District 3 Mission: In partnership with the community we are committed to developing lifelong learners and productive citizens.

Welcome to Beach Park District 3. We are a pre-k through eighth grade school district with approximately 2400 students. We have four elementary schools:  Howe, Kenneth Murphy, Newport, and Oak Crest Schools.  All students in grades six through eight attend Beach Park Middle School.  I am so fortunate to work in this wonderful community that values education and family.

I have learned that the best resource we have in Beach Park School District 3 is the people. This includes our eager students, dedicated teachers and supportive parents. If you know of someone that deserves our recognition for going the extra mile for our Beach Park District 3 community, please contact Shelly Adams at so that we can honor him or her with our Learners are Leaders award.

If you have thoughts, ideas or concerns you would like to share, call me at (847) 599-5070 or e-mail me at
