This review is about the 2s program at the Family Center. I cannot say enough positive things about our experience here under the outstanding leadership of Sara Soll. Our daughter had the most warm, loving and truly magical first school experience we could have ever wished for her! Her teachers are some of the kindest and most genuine educators I have ever met. The school is impeccably managed and I always knew my child was in safe care when she was at the Family Center. There is great diversity, a lovely and accepting parent community and lots of opportunities to get involved. As a parent who visited many 2s programs and who was VERY anxious about my child's school experience, I highly recommend the Family Center as the place that put all my worries to rest.

Brooklyn Friends School has offered me an experience I will live on with that was a rocky road full of many ups and downs. The institution itself is great, the upper school building is modern and is a very nice space to learn in. There are many opportunities to take advantage of at BFS as a particular aim of the school is it’s service and out reach to the community and those in need to create a more equitable society. A lot of the teachers are great and are happy and willing to help students with their work. However, unfortunately there have been many times I have not felt supported at this school and feel as though they don’t want me to succeed. However I use this as my motivation to be the best I can be. The academics at this school are great I know I have learned many skills that I am grateful for. The school offers the IB program which is great. However, it is somewhat unorganized and gets hectic throughout the year.
I went to BFS from Kindergarten to Middle school and I liked it for the most part. I didn't think that it had a strong enough math curriculum and focused heavily on English and History.

Generally, students are inclusive but as you get older, people start making friend groups and being more exclusive. If you don't fit into what is considered "normal" or "cute", then students may leave you out of parties and get-togethers.

The food in the cafeteria is pretty good but sometimes repetitive. There's usually pizza every Friday and on Monday the lunch is meatless.

There's not a lot of diversity in the middle school. The students are mostly white with some black students and barely any Asian students.

We get a lot of good opportunities and every year we go on an overnight trip. (5th: Upstate NY, 6th: Upstate NY, 7th: Philadelphia, 8th: Cape Cod.)
