There is a strong community at BSS. I am still friends with many of my high school friends and am involved actively with the schools alumnae association. The schools makes it easy to get involved as a student or graduate by providing so many different opportunities. I was most involved with the arts community while a student and so can speak primarily to that. Students are encouraged to take risks, try new things, etc. before they move onto the next stage in education. The class are not traditional or boring. The teachers are also superb in the arts courses the school offers. I think the girls are fortunate.
