    "Our eldest attended Bancroft for two years, and it was fantastic. Career opportunities took us out of state, but the hardest part of that decision was leaving Bancroft. Bancroft is a great happy medium between polar opposite approaches taken by other nearby schools. We looked at many, and we found that each was either too focused on excessive rigor or too focused on touchy-feely stuff. Bancroft was just right and had a more holistic attitude than most: there's definitely resources there to get kids to great colleges, but they realize there's more to childhood than constant pressure. The teachers could not possibly have been better. Not only were they great teachers, but they also genuinely cared deeply about students. They really inspire kids' innate love of learning. The bottom line is that my child loved Bancroft. When school ended in the summer, she couldn't wait for it to start again in the fall. The school inspires this. The only downsides: (1) less than ideal diversity; and (2) too many days off. (I will note that they do put in solid efforts regarding diversity, and the school's atmosphere is inclusive). In sum, it is a terrific school."

    "What I like about Bancroft is how personal the school is. When my daughter walks to gym, everyone from teachers to high school kids would say hi to her by name on the way. Even if they don't have him/ her in class, teachers know your child and their interests and can offer guidance to help them follow their passion. I like that the older kids interact with the little kids, which gives the little kids someone to look up to and the big kids an opportunity to act as a mentor. One thing I wish were different is the dividing line between (putting this delicately) working parents and those that can afford for mom to stay home. Yes, it's a private school and yes, there's a certain social structure that can be expected as a result. I feel, however, that families with stay-at-home moms are given opportunities that are not always offered to working moms."

    "Bancroft school is great for my 2 children. The students are respectful, poised and intelligent, The is small and focused so may not be to everyones tastes, but this allows the teachers and administration really give individual attention and help to each student. There are limited choices for private, non-parochial day schools in the area, and for us this is by far the best!"

    "Bancroft school has deteriorated dramatically in recent years. There are now far better alternatives in and around Worcester county."

    "Bancroft has offered my son an outstanding education from Kindergarten through his present grade three. The teachers know each student well and engage the students with creative, multi-layered learning that integrates many subject areas, from science, to reading, library, computer and art. Class size is small so each student receives individual attention. Teachers and adminstrators emphasize a caring environment, which permeates the school culture and kids' interactions. A weekly lower school assembly gives students regular practice with public speaking, starting at pre-K. Students are encouraged to learn about themselves, their strengths and weaknesses, and to set goals. Regarding the comments about the iPad, the lower school students use them in the classroom and it appears to enhance their learning."
