    "The school has decent facilities and some excellent teachers, especially in the arts, drama, and music department. Yet the overall experience can be uneven, and it all depends on your child's needs and preferences (and maybe your luck). For example, some parents prefer free writing ('how I spent my weekend' assignments) over structured grammar and vocab instruction and no stress (no grade) over competition. This is not our case, though. Also, many things that the school has to show have nothing to do with school curriculum. Robotics class is extra charge (yes, you pay extra) and extra time. Kids in our grade who were great at math were doing after-school math programs like RSM, and some of the better athletes were enrolled in rigorous training programs in our neighborhood. Even in-school activities, like GeoBee, were lacking. There were two short instructional meetings to explain the format, but all the prep was in the hands of parents in their spare time (in comparison, our previous school did study sessions during the school day twice a week for the entire year to prepare kids for the GeoBee). Yes, the school produces decent scores, but it's because it attracts a self-selecting group of families. We are glad we left the school, and our son does not effective learning in one week now than he did in a month at Bancroft."

    "Personally, I think Bancroft is fantastic. It's only flaw, which is quite prominent, is that it is so small. At the same time, it's size allows for a very close knit community. I would go back again, but I would want to go back even more if the size of the school were doubled, as the entire high school consists of under 200 people. My favorite experience at Bancroft is the theater program. It really brings out the absolute best in people, and I have made some of my best friends through it. It has taught me how to juggle school work and extracurriculars, helped me to get to know my teachers outside of the classroom, and given me my passion for the arts."

    "People complain about the school a lot, because it is challenging; however, at the end of the day, we all love it."
