How would you rate the school's support and welcome/integration of new students and their families, and why?
One of the best qualities of BCB is its diversity and transient student body. Because of this it is very easy for new kids to integrate. The school works hard to encourage parents/families to participate in campus activities. - Jun 2018
We found Graded to be very welcoming six years ago. There is a super active PTA and parents are encouraged to be on campus at any time (which is not the case in many U.S. public schools!). Student "ambassadors" are assigned to each newcomer to help them navigate their first few days of school. I do think the counselors could do a better job of proactively checking in with new kids and families, especially at the upper school level. - Jan 2018
