Starting in the 2011-12 school year, our Student Handbook will no longer be printed, and will reside here on this website.
Dear Students and Parents,
This year we are pleased to be
introducing a new theme that captures the essence of Bullis: Achieve Excellence through Balance. This
theme speaks to the great accomplishments of our students and our school within
a context that values the importance of balancing academics, athletics and
arts, a richly diverse community, and traditional values with progressive
approaches. At Bullis, we believe
this kind of balanced approach creates the ideal environment for our students
to succeed and thrive.
While flexibility and innovation are at
the core of how we operate, we also believe that high standards of conduct and
character development are important for providing clear guidelines for
students. This Bullis School Handbook
outlines our policies and procedures, which are intended to be clear but still
allow students plenty of room for self-expression, creativity, growth and
exploration. Please take some time to review this handbook with your student,
and to keep it handy for reference throughout the school year. The handbook is
also available online on this website (in the Student Life section).
We update the handbook every year to
reflect changes in our policies and the changing world in which we live. We
urge you to participate in this process by offering your suggestions and
raising any concerns you have about anything you read in this handbook. Please
email your child’s division principal with your thoughts.
Thank you for keeping the dialogue
going and working with us to ensure the ongoing commitment we all have to
creating the best environment for our students to learn and have fun at the same
Dr. Gerald Boarman
