    Brearley is a top notch, wonderful school! My 8-year-old daughter is thriving, happy and growing leaps and bounds every year. The Brearley community is warm, down to earth and diverse. The administration and the teachers will go above and beyond for your daughter and your family. While it has always been an academic powerhouse, it is also a school that encourages all of it's students to be creative and unique individuals, while learning to embrace Brearley's core values of "honesty, kindness, respect, responsibility and courage." We are lucky to be a part of the Brearley community.

    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.
    Brearley has been an exceptional experience for my two daughters (one current, one alumna). The level of education, engagement, and community that Brearley builds is unparalleled. Academically, girls are challenged to love learning: from honing in on developing strong writing skills to participating in lively class discussions, Brearley pushes their perspectives and fosters individual growth. Both of my daughters love the Brearley community and have enjoyed extracurriculars from theater to Model UN, as well as many other clubs. Brearley girls find lifelong friendships and, after they graduate, a community to return to for their whole lives.
