    "Mostly good teachers. Nice mix of AP and Honors classes."

    "Beware - no matter how generous you are in terms of 'giving' - if you are "well rounded" and live in CC, you will not be treated well at Bentley. If you wear cute clothes, dresses, make-up, etc. you will feel the distain from teachers, the administration, some students and parents alike. The "Community" was severely lacking - there was none. There was no school spirit either. There were some serious social issues that were never addressed properly. One girl created so much drama when things did not go her way; her obnoxious, manipulative behavior was ignored by the administration - who have always played favorites. There was constant change over on a large scale. The two college counselors left - I feel sorry for the class of 2017. Hopefully, the new Head of the Upper School will be better at treating all families well, not just the ones he liked. Bentley's new buzz word is "Inclusive"; too bad so many nice families didn't feel that. For some families, Bentley is the same price as many colleges and universities. If we had to do it all over again, we wouldn't."

    "Some teachers really go the extra mile to make a difference. All students receive extensions on projects, papers and other work if need be."

    "This is a school full of academic and intellectual high-flyers. They are comfortable trying new things and there is a culture of support for experimentation. The faculty is engaged, motivated and positive. They are very good at supporting students desire to try new things and extend themselves academically and socially. The student body is an eclectic mix drawn from the bay area. The sports teams are not terribly competitive, so this is NOT the school for a real athlete."

    "We have been at Bentley since kindergarten, and are considered "lifers." We had wonderful options, and have very close friends at other top private schools, but I really feel Bentley has been the right choice for us. My son has wonderful friends in every grade. The kids really mix well together, and it truly is a school of inclusion. Bentley walks the walk. The teachers and coaches are fantastic, and really engage and communicate well with the students. I am forever grateful to Arlene and Brian. They are the absolute BEST and I feel blessed to be part of this amazing community."
