There is a community for everyone to fit into at BSS - students who are athletic, acandemic, into the arts, etc. It is a positive environment and the students are generally happy. I enjoyed being a part of the BSS community while I was a student but I appreciated it even more after graduating. There is a strong network of alumnae that volunteer to mentor current students or graduates and many alumnae events to allow students to stay involved. Most significantly as a graduate I appreciate the environment that I went to school in now more after being out in the world. It is a special place where the girls are encouraged to try things, grow, become more confident. It really is a great environment. I feel fortunate to have the experience I did.
