The Bolles School Reviews

136 reviews

We currently have students on the Lower School Campus. We have been extremely impressed with the overall learning experience and climate of the school. We love that the school administration appears to have adopted a "forward thinking" ideology when reviewing policies and procedures. They are constantly reviewing current research and trends, as well as seeking parent and student input, when evaluating the school's needs and direction. The current head of school is open to ideas and suggestions and, consequently, has brought many innovative educational learning strategies and programs to the school.
As with any school there are clearly areas that have room for improvement, but we love that the school is open to reviewing and considering these and making adjustments as needed.

I came to Bolles as a sophomore. My experience is a little different since I became a boarder, but I am extremely impressed with the school overall. This school helped me a grow as an individual. The academics are rigorous, but it is worth it. I feel more prepared for college than ever. The teachers are amazing here and want their students to succeed. The boarding system is great. The small number of boarders gives it a homey feel as well as the comforting staff.
The Bolles School's motto of "pursuing excellence through courage, integrity, and compassion" is highlighted in every aspect of the school. Nearly every student at the school plays a sport; and every student has played a sport at the school at some point in their academic lives. The integrity is illustrated through the various clubs that give Bolles a good name. Furthermore, every student, teacher, and faculty member at The Bolles School makes its name international, not because of the education or sports recognition, but because everybody cares so ddeply about the school that they feel the need to spread the word about it.
