Bard Academy at Simon's Rock
Sophomore: Bard Academy has been an amazing place for me, providing me with the knowledge and facilities to grow in my learning, expand my interests, and meet new and interesting people who I know I will continue to have a bond with for the rest of my life. There are places where improvement can be made, specifically around communication between students and administration, but I see an active effort from the administration to make those changes. In my first few months, I was able to meet new friends, and I was surprised at how accepting and welcoming the community is. Teachers are engaged and passionate, and I enjoyed subjects that I have disliked in the past, because the teachers are engaged and actively encourage participation. In one of my favorite classes, bioethics, my teacher told us that we shouldn't be afraid to question the perspectives he stated in discussions. Bard Academy has resources available to students, including personal tutoring, teacher office hours, and a writing center.
