Clubs & Organizations
In virtually every area of student life at BB&N, we encourage self-reliance, knowledge of oneself and a capacity for leadership.
One of the most fertile areas for exploring and building leadership skills is student government. In the regular operations of student government, students meet in grade councils to oversee each class, and representatives from all classes meet weekly in the Student Council. With two faculty members and the Dean of Students, they discuss issues of concern to the Upper School and make recommendations to the Director. Students do not determine School policy, but their opinions and proposals on student life issues are taken seriously. Their suggestions are put forward at a student summit in which student leaders review their proposals with administrators every month.
Clubs & Activities
Many extracurricular programs are available at BB&N. Some demand a substantial commitment of time; some are single events. All give students the opportunity to learn new skills, follow special interests, and meet students from other grades. These activities also give students and faculty the chance to cooperate on a unique basis. Activities are not required, but we encourage all students to participate.
