The "one star" reviews here look like they were all submitted by the same disgruntled person. Go see for yourself; the school is remarkable and the kids graduating are happy, healthy, and academically excellent, and they go on to do amazing things.

Incredible. This school transformed my children from immature and bored in public school to challenged, focused, and civilized human beings at Bement. The non-academic aspects (arts, athletics, manners, respect, etc) are just as good as the academics. I wish the school went all the way through grade 12.

Awful. Not worth the money. Not worth the overseas trip. They work hard at creating a false positive image. Their admission process is very biased. Zero stars.

I have been a student at Bement for 7 years and basically, it's my home. The teachers, students, and faculty are so supportive. Everyone cares about everyone else like family. Bement has taught me so much, academically, and socially.The teachers are brilliant, they know how to make learning fun to a point where I actually look forward to math class everyday. Bement teaches you so much about the world around you and it's great that I get to have special bonds with people who live half way across the world from me. Before I started Bement, I hated all sports because I was horrible at them, but at Bement, it doesn't matter if you're horrible,all that matters is that you're learning and having fun, and with Bement's help, you won't be horrible for long. It's sad to think that now I have to wait all summer for my next math class. If I could rate Bement 10 stars I would, because 5 doesn't capture how much my classmates and I truly love Bement. End note: I would like to thank Bement for teaching me to be a good writer. Without that, this review would be horrible. I hope you seriously consider Bement, because there's nowhere i'd rather be then Bement, my home for life.

Excellent core curriculum with demanding courses. Hardworking students in small classes with qualified faculty. A supportive. even "nurturing" environment.

Loved the school. My kids have adjusted quicker than we have expected. The school cares about education but is not hyper competitive. It provides a healthy and personalized environment that let each child discover his/her own talent.

My son had the most incredible experience and education at Bement. When we looked at high schools we were told over and over they would not have enough curriculum for him because he was so far ahead academically. Any school is what you make our of it. My son was an excited and motivated learner who ultimately skipped high school and is enrolled full time in college and already excelling. He is more prepared than many of his older classmates, and I'm sure that is all thanks to the amazing staff at the Bement school. Again, any school is what you make of it.

Awful boarding school. If you seek an American education, there are many better schools. Bement is not the "family" that they claim to be (unless you have a lot of money that they want). My child did not learn much and it was not worth the trip from South Korea.

Worth every penny! Our family has had the best experience with Bement...from the caring teachers (every single one of them...not just my child's teacher) to the incredible opportunities offered every child. The academic experience is rich and full. We feel very fortunate to be a part of a community that cares deeply about diversity, the arts, and helping young people bring out their best.

Great school, great teachers, great administration! I think the poor reveiws are about a different agenda , because they are not describing The Bement School. Go for yourself, don't trust a few reveiws on the Internet . This school is a gateway to the best secondary schools in the nation.

Caring staff, but still not worth the high price. Having sent my children to other private schools, I can say that many of the other parents at Bement are very class-conscious and not friendly. My child had to repeat a grade at another private school because Bement had not prepared them academically. You are paying for the individual attention, yet this did not carry over when my children attended schools elsewhere and were not on par with their peers. Very disappointing experience.

One of the most remarkable schools anywhere! This school could go toe to toe with any top k-9 school in the country. The high # of boarders who come from across the world, & across the country demonstrates this. I love my child is intergrated into a multi-cultural classroom, even though we live in farm country. The academics are rigorous and challenging, yet the teachers are patient, always available, and truely dedicated to each childs individual needs, learning styles, and personal achievement. The kids days are diverse with more than academics...multiple music classes, art, theatre, community service classes, sports, field trips, and so many more events makes the education provided one of the most well rounded educational experiences my child could have. The emphasis on friendship, community and inclusion makes this a school with very few, if any, social problems. There is no fowl language in the halls, no fighting, no bullying, no making fun of classmates, or even strangers, no theft, just a warm, caring, helpful, supportive community of kids, parents, teachers, and administrators. This school is the best parenting decision I have ever made!
