From our 2,000 seat Kline Stadium to the 750-seat Howard auditorium
in The Blair Family Center for the Arts and our new Academic Center in The
Marriott Family Library, and in every other building, tennis court, baseball
field and lawn, our campus has the ideal facilities for learning, play, arts
Small classes on a roomy campus. Teams where
everyone can play and plenty of them to choose from. A close-knit community
where you quickly make friends, and still find more people to meet through new
activities and programs. Bullis combines small and big every day—you get the
best of both worlds.
Build a Facebook page for history. Take a
minimester for English, studying horror movies or the poetry of rock music.
Start your own business for economics. Learn calculus in a “flipped classroom.”
Every day, teachers and students work together to make learning fun, applicable
to everyday life and more meaningful for everyone.
Our counselors work closely with you to determine
which school is best for you. The Class of 2011’s acceptances included a wide
range of schools from Amherst and Columbia to Middlebury, NYU, Lafayette,
Emory, Penn State, Berklee College of Music and many more. We value the
diversity of schools our graduates attend, not just the “elite schools.” Download a list of college acceptances for the Class of 2012
We have no requirement for community service—our
students get involved because they genuinely want to. Visits to childcare
centers and nursing homes and homeless shelters, toy drives and book drives and
cereal drives, building libraries and homes or providing Thanksgiving to needy
families in our community—Bullis is helping out nearly every day. See the video.
Our Global Studies and Service program each year
coordinates trips to travel, perform, study and serve around the world during
spring break, in the summer or for senior projects. This year Bullis students will
travel to Genoa for the Model UN conference, to the Prague Music Festival and
to Italy for the Roncalli Theatre Festival. They will study in Peru and serve
with International Habitat for Humanity, Caring for Cambodia and Learn-Serve in
Paraguay and Zambia.
There’s always something exciting happening
at Bullis. You can study martial arts with a grand master from China. Escape
“Beyond the Books” or enjoy “Community Day,” a surprise day-off from regular
school activities to strengthen class bonds or take a break from academics to
discuss social issues and making positive choices when faced with the many
challenges students encounter every day.
Bullis received an award from Bethesda
Magazine for our green program, which includes being 100% wind- and
solar-powered, growing produce in our organic garden for the dining hall,
participating in the Day School Green Challenge, cleaning up neighborhood parks
and ranking 4th in the country for our use of renewable energy by
the EPA in its Green Power Partnership.
Our dining hall offers options for even the pickiest eaters. Try something from
the hot bar, or make your own salad using produce from our organic garden on
campus. Make a sandwich or bagel, have a bowl of cereal, grab a yogurt or fresh
fruit. And yes, we always offer dessert!
This year a new Academic Center was added to our
Marriott Family Library to provide support to any student seeking a bit of
extra help or a quiet place to study. Staffed with a fulltime learning specialist
and media specialist, the Center also has a Writing Lab and teachers who rotate
throughout the day to provide help to any student, any time.
