The Bullis School Reviews

Bullis is an awesome place for college prep. The school has a great, fun, culture in the classroom and it is very rare to have a class without any laughter or fun. The varsity sports teams are all very good, with many programs on the rise. The administration and teachers at Bullis are very supportive, and there is plenty of time before, during, and after the school day to see teachers for extra help in class.

Transferring to a private was a big difference from a public. I had my doubts at first, but they quickly changed. My transformation went really smooth. I was welcomed and embraced by the Bullis community like I had been there forever. I love the support you receive from the teachers, staff, my peers and the parents. The campus is beautiful and is expanding. They are continuously striving to be better.
Great work/life balance with challenging curriculum and teachers that teach real world education. No work just for works sake. Diverse student body with lots of different points of view. Sports are good to great, depending on sport. Great place to go if you want to focus on STEM or Entrepreneurial type work.
