    "Freshman at Bhsec and it only took the school the first 4 days to amaze me. Bard is a good challenge. We're different. #Bard: A Place to Think!"

    "In answer to some reviewer's comment, we have a great singing program! I took chorus at BHSEC for 2 years and loved it more than words can express. Every semester I felt challenged, and by my final semester I spent over an hour every week with the chorus teacher, working in a group of 2 or 3 students or working on my solos with her."

    "As an alumna of this amazing school (Class of 2009), I can confidently say that the education BHSEC provides is world class. When I matriculated to a prestigious liberal arts college in New England, I was ahead of my peers because Bard made me solid writer, eloquent speaker, and a critical thinker. My four years at Bard were challenging. I cried many nights from exhaustion because of my long commute and never-ending homework. However, the challenge that Bard provided me strengthened me. It is not a place for everyone and please believe that not everyone makes it to Year One or to commencement day, but if you do, you will feel great pride and finally realize it was all worth it. If you are thinking of going to Bard, make sure you are committed to seeing it through and always remember your hard work certainly pays off. And if you want to send you child to Bard, make sure you are supportive of your student because they will need your help and your assurance."

    "this school isn't as perfect as it seems but its still a wonderful school. I am a year 2 and I've grown soo much in the past four years, intellectually and socially. I've met all types of people here and the friends that I have made, we are very close. I love how all of the teachers are very dedicated to their students and their work. A teacher is rarely absent here and they often stay after school to help their students. I wish that there was more school spirit here and I wish that we had more social events although some people do try to foster a sense of community. Academics are important but at the end of the day, we are still teenagers and it would be nice to have some of the typical high school experiences (dances,etc). Overall I enjoyed my time here and I wouldn't change my experience for anything in the world. The pros definately outweigh the cons. But think hard before you come to bard because it is not your typical high school experience. A lot of kids that started out with me in 9th grade transferred or were asked to leave because they struggled to adjust to the environment, academically and socially."

    "I love acedemics, but I also like the arts (singing, acting, etc.) Is Bard a good school for me? Is there any programs for, say, singing? Is there time to do stuff out of school? Thanks!!"
