    I love this school! I have so many choices and really do get to control my trajectory and interests. I believe that my teachers my friends have made me a better student, athlete, community member, and person. Because of the school's size, I've had opportunities at Bancroft that I wouldn't have found anywhere else.

    I could not be happier with our Bancroft experience! My children are academically-challenged and nurtured by teachers who truly care about each student. The school's approach to education is cutting-edge; my kids aren't just learning facts and skills, they're applying them to real-world projects all the time! Bancroft does a really good job teaching character and leadership, and I see the kindness and compassion my kids are learning at Bancroft transfer over to their time outside of school. And the specials classes can't be beat! My children have access to stellar art, drama, robotics, music, library, foreign language, and cultural opportunities. Thanks to Bancroft, my kids are hard-working, academically-advanced, kind, well-rounded, engaged with their community, and really, really excited to go to school each day!
