We moved to this school last year. My son was in private schools before and my son is much happier at B.V. The teachers are fantastic and my son made friends the first day. This is a GREAT SCHOOL and we are excited to be a part of it.

I have two children who have attended this school k-5. The atmosphere is one of a team. We have three elementary schools in this district - However BV houses any student in the district with special needs. They have an excellent program and inclusive classrooms which I believe all the students benefit from. We have had great experiences with the teachers and administration.

My children are current B-V students. After spending three years at a nyc private school they couldnt be happier. This school and villages of Buchanan and Verplanck are the best kept secret in Westchester. My third and fifth grader have 18 children in their classes. Every adult knows every child, by face and by name. It feels like a progressive lovey-dovey nyc private school. The community is quite diverse - blacks, whites, jews, south americans, asians, rich, poor, middle class, single moms, grandparents as parents, blue colar, white collar. I usually don't tell folks how I love the school, distict and town, as I am afraid more people would move in. I wouldn't change a thing. A great american school.

My children have attended many schools and by far B-V is the most caring school we've dealt with. The entire staff truly cares about the children and want the best for each child. They take the time to teach the children and help them with patience and understanding. We are extremely pleased with this school and for the first time my children love going to school! They've made many friends and they love their teachers. We've decided to buy a house in this district because we are so impressed on the way the schools are ran. I recommend this school and district 100%.
