The IDEALS in our school

As stated in BB&N’s mission and values statements, our school is committed to prepare students for lives of principled engagement in their communities and beyond. This commitment is currently being brought to life through a new multifaceted, all-school Global Education Program, the goals of which align perfectly well with the Round Square IDEALS. For example, we offer a number of national international travel opportunities that are semester-away programs or are centered on different subject areas, such as languages, service learning, and science. We also provide leadership experiences such as Bivouac, Student Government, and Peer Counseling.

What being a Round Square school means to us

BB&N has a strong and ongoing commitment to supporting and enhancing global education opportunities for its students and faculty in and outside the classroom. Having the benefit of sharing the same philosophy, principles, and values with like-minded RS schools enriches our community: from virtual connections at the lower grades to real live experiences with students from other cultural backgrounds, our school values deepen and strengthen. We look forward to grow connections with other RS schools around the Globe.
