25 Parent Reviews for Buckingham Browne and Nichols School

I'm a student at BBN. I've been going here for three years. The environment at BBN is toxic and dangerous. The students are forced under tireless amounts of unhealthy stress, and bullying. The administration does nothing to prevent or assist situations like this, and when they do, the reporter's name ...  Read more

Our daughter went to BB&N for high school. It wasn't until her junior year that we realized what a mistake we'd made. She'd been the top student in a good parochial school and we were attracted by the reputation of BB&N as being a top school academically. During her junior year, her academic adviser ...  Read more

The review about the admission staff being absolutely useless couldn't be more right! We just pulled our child out. If you like to pay for a Cadillac and actually get a Toyota then this school is for you. We agree there are some great teachers there, but the administration has lost touch with reality ...  Read more

My child attended the middle school at BB&N, and it was a wonderful experience. It is the crown jewel of the school. She is a confident, insightful thinker because of it.

Hi, as a current student of BB&N's high school I would like to input my two cents. This school admittedly has fantastic teachers. When you meet a good teacher here, I really mean you might a fantastic teacher, and I am truly proud to say that over four years at BB&N, several of my teachers have been ...  Read more

As an alumnus of BB&N I have both fond and not so fond memories of my time there. I cannot argue with the negative reviews that there is a certain amount of pressure and stress, however I feel that it is precisely that stress and hard work that prepared me for the real world. BB&N teaches students to ...  Read more

BB&N was the only school we looked into for our seventh grader last year after we discovered he was just not being challenged in his public school. We approached the search as trying to find the right fit for our son and knowing if it was not, we could always explore other options. Our family could not ...  Read more

Reading the negative reviews, we thought what a shame that the writers couldn't figure out sooner that BB&N was not the right fit for them and that they most likely would have been happier some else, but may have been too blinded by their own ambitions to see it. Since the very essence of private school, ...  Read more

My son is in the process of applying to the high school, and so far, we're all favorably impressed. The students were warm and engaging during our tour, and the admissions officer was fantastic. He really had a sense of who our son is after talking with him fr 20 minutes. BB&N may not be the perfect ...  Read more

Our daughter just started 9th grade; last year was our first year at BB&N after spending K-7th in public schools. So far we are thrilled. Our daughter is extremely happy, and much more challenged than she was in public school (unfortunately). The academics are incredible and our daughter has been able ...  Read more
