Welcome from Head of School Dr. Jennifer Price
Whether you are exploring BB&N for the first time or already are a part of our school, I’d like to thank you for visiting our website. Welcome to our vibrant, exciting BB&N community.
I too am learning a great deal about BB&N, since I just began as Head of School in July. I am spending my first six months meeting with hundreds of members of our community—students, teachers, parents, and alumni/ae—during my "listening tour" to learn what they think is special about this school.
Each person I’ve met has told me in their own way what a remarkable place BB&N is. And now, every day here on our campuses, I get to see firsthand what they mean.
A student recently described BB&N to me as a place where it’s “cool” to be smart. I love that description. Especially when it’s combined—as it is here—with talented, supportive teachers and an amazing sense of community.
What kind of a place is BB&N? It’s a place where our Upper School students might find their classroom to be in the woods in New Hampshire, at a leading biotech firm in Cambridge, or at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. It’s a place where Middle School students start their Wednesdays in electives that include Creative Writing & Cookies and Beats & Bacon. It’s a place where our Sixth Graders install their Human Rights gallery on the same day that they team up to battle the Lower School faculty in the annual kickball game.
It's a place that espouses a school motto that speaks volumes about the values important to our community: Honor, Scholarship, and Kindness.
I’m truly excited to start my time at this incredible school. For those of you visiting our community for the first time, I invite you to pay us a visit and learn what makes BB&N so special. And for those of you already part of our community, I invite you to stop me as I wander our campuses and share your thoughts about BB&N.
