When I entered Brearley in 9th grade, I was amazed by how incredible the school was. The classes are small, with a maximum of 18 or so kids in one class; there is a lot of opportunity for student-teacher interactions. My teachers’ enthusiasm for their subject is contagious, and they encourage us to perform at our best. The academis are strenuous, but I find myself learning something from each homework assignment. The college counselors have already started working with my grade on college preparation. We are taking APs, SAT IIs, and mock ACTs/SATs. They work with each junior and senior to compile college lists and discuss the college process. The clubs range from Mock Trial to Political Awareness to Medical Science, and more! In high school, clubs meet for 30 minutes during the school day, but some require out-of-school work as well. They are run by two or more junior or senior co-heads, and are a joy to be in. Overall, I have loved my experience with Brearley thus far.
I've gone to school here for 13 years and am so grateful for everything I have learned at Brearley! The teachers are first-rate, the students are brilliant, and the administration is generally responsive and supportive. The academics are rigorous, but as a result I not only accumulated knowledge, but also developed a passion for learning and a willingness to challenge myself and work hard.
