Brearley School Reviews

My daughter began in Kindergarten and (still) loves it! She’s now in high school. It's a nurturing place for learning. The staff and faculty are incredibly supportive. They know each child. The curriculum is top-notch. There is a methodical approach to the curriculum that begins in the Lower School and continues in the Upper School. One example is in the writing program and how it evolved from Kindergarten, building on each girl’s capacity and capability, each year. Our daughter now produces papers for many courses that are well-written and well-argued! We feel that Brearley is our second home in the city. My daughter has life-long friends. Our family has also found families who will remain in our lives for a very long time.

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 have been a parent at the school for 8 years. The Brearley School has wonderful teachers who really care about the students. The parent community is very diverse, inclusive and warm. Academics at the school are among the best in the country, and the school has recently spent a lot of time on including a well developed and researched social and emotional learning curriculum. The students at Brearley are hard working, respectful girls with good values. Generous financial aid is available at this school. Your daughters will receive a tremendous education and make life long friends.
