Brooklyn Friends School Reviews

BFS has provided our two kids an incredible home both academically and socially. Our older daughter has not only become an excellent scholar who's been taught to think analytically and creatively, but who's learned how to see the world with clarity as far as privilege around race and class, how to negotiate conflict, and how to take action to make her world a better place with both burning passion and peaceful compassion. Our younger child, who isn't as academically motivated and learns more kinetically, has also been embraced and supported. There's a good balance of academics and core values, and service to community is emphasized. There's great diversity in the student body and in the teaching staff and administration. With diversity comes challenges and often misunderstanding, and the school has faced these challenges head-on, not always with perfection but with commitment, passion, and consistent effort. We love BFS and feel lucky to have found it.

I have been going to BFS for my entire life and I have seen a lot of change in my 16 years there. The preschool and lower school not only work on academics but instilling good morals and a rounding the kids out as people and not just students. The sad part is as I ended middle school and went into the Upper school there are problems with the administration. The student body has a strong voice in the community which is good, but it sometimes clashes with the administration. In my highschool career I have experienced two major protests by the students leading to classes cancelled and teacher conflict. The Upper school has many positives including education, service learning, trips, and outside opportunities. I have been able to make meaningful connections with students and faculty alike.
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.
