Bullis is at an exciting crossroads in education. Teaching students today means more than simply sharing knowledge and shaping scholars; it means truly preparing children in all grades for a rapidly evolving future so they will be global citizens armed with the skills and experiences to take advantage of tomorrow's opportunities and embrace all challenges.
The School's broad-based programs currently leverage a global perspective with hands-on experiential-based learning and the latest technologies. Yet there is room for expansion to enhance learning for every student, maintain small classes and provide new technology, more space for collaboration and creativity.
Head of School Dr. Gerald L. Boarman:
“From STEM to entrepreneurship, global studies to the arts, technology use and hands-on learning, and so much more, Bullis is already at the cutting-edge of education to prepare our children for a rapidly evolving future.
“Now we are ready to build the campus of tomorrow with a state-of-the-art Discovery Center as our centerpiece. Labs, flexible performance areas, more classrooms, a Maker Space and Fabrication Lab and more so our students can not just learn, but do ... and make ... and create ... and bring their studies and their creativity to life.
“Tomorrow's leaders start here, learning to solve problems, collaborate and lead. They learn to put their talents to use, value the contributions of others and explore how collaboration builds a better future than tunnel-vision. In our Discovery Center, our students will be well on their way to accomplishing that and so much more.
“Explore our vision and consider becoming part of this crucial campaign on behalf of Bullis. There is no greater investment than in the future of our children and our world."
We want our students:
- to become self-directed, innovative and creative problem-solvers
- to brainstorm ideas, build prototypes, bring concepts to market and gain the necessary skills to make all of this happen
- to gain critical skills in collaboration and teamwork
- to grow creatively, express themselves through an array of media and build confidence, trust and freedom in their own voices.
to grow as leaders who go beyond providing for themselves to fully realize their contribution to the world.
