The Bullis School says

The Bullis School is an independent, co-educational college preparatory day school offering girls and boys in grades 3 through 12 an educational program of excellence in a community that values integrity, respect, responsibility, diversity and service. A caring and supportive faculty fosters a positive attitude about learning and challenges our students to achieve their highest potential in academics, the arts and athletics. Creating a caring, challenging communitythis goal guides us at the Bullis School. We recognize that each aspect of a students experience is an opportunity for growth, and we require every student to explore a range of interests in academics, the arts and athletics. We believe that each students potential must be developed thoughtfully through stimulating, challenging experiences. As students take increasing individual and collective responsibility for their development, appropriate structure and high expectations establish a strong foundation and useful framework for learning and creative expression. Within this framework, we encourage each student to regularly question assumptions, take risks, learn from mistakes and participate in scholarly inquiry.
