"a nurturing school community ... I truly felt that I had partners in raising my children"

Heather Savazzi - Parent   (Jun 13, 2019)

The B.E.N. School-House showed our family the power of a nurturing school community - and it's ability to foster each student's innate capacity for learning, growth, compassion and resilience. My children cherished the time they spent at the school, and now that they've moved on, even they can see how their B.E.N. experiences have helped to shape them! After an incident at her school recently, my ten-year old daughter commented that "If only every student here [at my new school] had the love a...

"Ilaria Sheik is not a woman in a job, but a woman responding to a calling"

Gina Vaccaro - Parent   (Jun 13, 2019)

My daughters both attended the B.E.N School-House, until the eldest graduated from grade 6. What my children loved the best, and they truly loved the school and its teachers, was the way they could explore the subjects presented. For example, Art wasn't just philosophy and application, although there was that too; it was finding a subject to draw in the nearby park and cemetery, it was quick pieces (spontaneous work) and pieces that took weeks (allowing for in-depth thought and time to create.) ...

"the perfect place for us"

Danielle Saint-Onge - Parent   (Jun 13, 2019)

We were looking for an early learning program that would support both of our twin five year olds in developing a great foundation for social and academic success.

The small classes and unrelenting dedication of all of the staff members in fostering a strong sense of community for the students and families was a profound experience for our family. Our kids transitioned very well to the school and we had regular communication with all of their teachers in o...

Welcoming, positive, spectacular

Eli Ham - Parent   (Jun 13, 2019)

Our families experience at the BEN has been spectacular. The community spirit of the school is very welcoming and the staff's energy is positive with both students and parents. My daughter loves all the outdoor time she receives there and her love of learning is clearly being fostered as she is coming home and asking for me to create 'homework' like her work at school. She is eager to share what she has learned and able to apply it in a real world context already. As a parent the engagemen...

"The lesson plans are grounded in a highly rigorous pedagogy that nurtures each child's unique characteristics and strengths while ensuring the development of..."

Sarah Dulmage - Parent   (Jul 11, 2019)

My child loved all of his teachers at the BEN; he felt safe with them and grew quite attached to a couple of them in particular. He looked forward to going to the BEN every day and was often hesitant to leave when I went to pick him up. The loving and positive atmosphere nourished my child's curious and creative nature. The teachers were always warm and welcoming, present with the children, and they consistently responded authentically and thoroughly to the children's inquiries. My child's fa...
