Our son attended The Bellwether School from second through sixth grades. Even though he moved on to another fine school after graduation, we still miss Bellwether!! At Bellwether he blossomed into a confident, caring, human being. One of the things Bellwether does so well is nurturing a child s individual personality and at the same time teaching him to be a viable community member. This is an experience that will continue to mold him through life. The small class size, and incredible teachers and staff bring so much to the rich, hands-on, academic experience. My only wish is that Bellwether could go to grade twelve!

Bellwether is a great school. Our son is in his third year (including one in pre-school) and has really flourished there. I attribute this to: (1) the truly wonderful teachers; (2) the emphasis on individualizing instruction as much as possible (more than you'd think due to small classes and teachers very skilled at it); (3) the emphasis on leveraging students' interests in the instruction process (making learning interesting and fun); and (4) the holistic approach - stressing the basics of reading, writing and math, but also critical thinking, inter-personal skills, community involvement, environmental stewerdship, etc. We also love the palpable sense of community, both within the student body and faculty and among the families of the students. Needless to say, we highly recommend the school.
