Lower School Friends

After BFS


Many of our alumni describe their years at BFS as the best. They found learning here to be both fun and vigorous. Their relationships with teachers and classmates endure over the years, often for a lifetime.

Alumni help with many schoolwide events and are frequent visitors to campus. They serve on the school board and committees while supporting the school with gifts to the Annual Fund, Capital Campaigns, and Endowments.
