    I worked at The Brearley School

    Pros

    (Note: The following comments only concern the Lower School as I never had any significant interaction from within the Middle or Upper divisions.) The students are wonderful--bright, eager, creative, self-motivated. And, contrary to popular perception, the learning atmosphere is both playful and progressive; laughter and smiles truly abound. The parents, in my experience, tend to defer to the advice/suggestions of faculty, which is refreshing if you come from a private school environment where parents tend to be a little too assertive. Regarding the faculty, everyone works hard and strives to provide the best, most responsive instruction possible. There is a diversity of approach and philosophy among teachers, making for a healthy ongoing dialogue.

    Cons

    First, it can be a tough commute as the nearest subway stop is, at best, a 15-minute walk, a walk that quickly becomes 25 minutes in bad weather. The expectations for faculty are extremely high, which means that you might not be comfortable admitting that you're having an off-day. The curriculum, at least in the upper lower school grades, progresses at an incredibly fast rate. For the most part, this is exhilarating--both for teachers and students--but the downside is that you are not always able to spend extra time with a particular concept or skill, regardless of the benefits for doing so.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice
