Why did you choose BB&N? And why do you love giving tours?

I came to BB&N during my freshman year of high school, and I was looking for a place that offered an academically challenging curriculum and also pushed its students beyond the classroom. Today, as someone who is part of the speech and debate team, school science magazine, The CHASM, and crew team, I have found that BB&N really embodies this mindset of pushing their students to explore and be multi-dimensional. Through tours, I hope to communicate this great diversity of interest that is felt as soon as you walk into the campus.

What activities are you involved in?

Some of my favorite activities include the Speech and Debate team, Computer Science Club, and coxing for BB&N’s crew team.

What BB&N tradition do you love the most?

BB&N has a very successful school magazine called the Vanguard which comments on all things related to the school campus, including highlighting student-led events, interests, and opinions. It rallies the whole community together, facilitates important conversations, and spotlights amazing student work that goes on behind the scenes!

What do Honor, Scholarship, and Kindness mean to you?

Honor, scholarship, and kindness are missions embedded in everything we do at BB&N. From within the curriculum, to the relationships we foster in our smaller communities such as clubs, this motto is a motivation to keep growing not only as students, but also as well-rounded, and considerate individuals.

What is your favorite place on campus?

My favorite part of campus is the courtyard, a beautiful area at the center of the school. Especially when it is warm and sunny, it is the perfect place to hang out with friends, have lunch, or play a sport. However, if you ever have the chance to visit the campus, I also strongly recommend taking a stroll down the gorgeous Charles River!

What are you most looking forward to this school year?

I am most excited about Senior Spring Project, which is an opportunity for seniors to construct their own curriculum during their spring trimester. Students have the freedom to pull from a combination of classes and outside-of-school programs that fall into pillars of intellectual engagement, community service, wellness, and new experiences. I can’t wait to really shape my time and explore some activities that I have always wanted to try within and outside of the classroom.
