    "Do not (Repeat: DO. NOT.) send an unconventional child to this school. There. I just saved your whole family years of agony."

    "My son is a HS student after spending his elementary years at BDS. He greatly enjoyed his years at BDS but he now seems astonished that he actually has to work hard for his grades and he sometimes resents putting in the needed effort (he's a B+ student). He agrees that his attitude was instilled by the "every child is wonderful and special" regardless of the quality of their work outlook at BDS. Instilling good self-esteem is important but so is instilling a strong work ethic and a rigorous curriculum--these latter 2 weren't done effectively at BDS. So be warned. It is a very good school in many ways but they don't ask enough of the students."

    "The academics here are not that strong. It is an ok school. If you child is a high achiever or an honors student, they will not be challenged. I don't think they value those who think out of the box."

    "Thankfully, my family cannot relate to the review just below, which I'm guessing was written by the parent of a younger child. BDS inspires near-reverence among the parent body because of its extraordinarily thoughtful and rigorous curriculum, caring teachers, bright kids, channeling of kids' creative energy, and welcoming community. BDS kids routinely get into the best secondary schools, and are impressively well-spoken, confident, kind, mindful of their responsibilities to the community and larger world, and superbly educated without ever having been pushed to be anything other than kids. It is too orderly and structured to feel like an earthy-crunchy, peacenik school, and too accepting and encouraging of individuality and creativity to feel like a prep. school. It's something in between the two (think uniformed sports teams on manicured playing fields AND self-assembled rock bands). Sui generis."

    "I would say OK, but not great and for the $$ we were hoping to be closer to great. For the $$ paid I'd like to not be greeted by a teacher with a mouthfull of cereal at 8:30am in the morning, to not have unrelated videos shown during class time, and to have some mind of benchmarks. Overall we've found the school to be middle of the road academically (and we are not alone in that feeling). On the positive side, the atmosphere is warm and nurturing. The parent body is nice with not too much "attitude" which can be found at these schools. The head is retiring so we will see what comes next."
