Lacrosse Team Wins First Game of the Year!

Congratulations to the SBCS lacrosse team on their 6-4 win over Franklin Square on March 23rd, the first game of the season.

Our Vision: Thinkers ready to navigate our world.

Our Mission: To create extraordinary learning experiences that inspire the thoughtful, courageous, compassionate citizen in every child.

Tenets: The following tenets guide our development of curricula and school culture:

  • Expeditionary Learning (EL Education): We are one of over 400 schools in the country that uses this rigorous, intensive approach to building students' ownership of their learning, student engagement in meaningful topics, and student mastery of academic content. Several aspects of EL Education (including daily Crew meetings, Student-Led Conferences, Schoolwide Meetings, and our Habits of Scholarship) help us create a strong climate and culture. When the mood is right, the learning is tight! For more info on EL Education, please visit eleducation.org.
  • Arts Integration: Our two art teachers work with students to do art for art's sake. They also use art to help deepen students' mastery of other academic content. Our beautiful walls are a testament to our commitment to the arts and to our budding artists!
  • Fitness and Adventure: In addition to traditional PE skills and sports, our students explore non-traditional activities that stretch their comfort zones. Our F-and-A teachers also make sure to spend time in nature with students. We start small with excursions to the woods and daylong adventures to beautiful places. In 8th grade, students are ready for a week-long Outward Bound trip.
  • Meditation and Mindfulness: We take quick but powerful mindfulness breaks every day. We also provide more intensive mindfulness sessions for students who need it. We find that a daily mindfulness practice helps kids focus and engage more deeply in learning.
