The Promise of Bentley School

To pursue academic excellence from Kindergarten to
The threshold of college,
To cherish potential and, even more, fulfill it;
To explore the arts, to love the sciences,
And embrace curiosity of all kinds;
To feel the balance of mind and body
That comes from companionship on the field of play;
To lead when the time is to lead,
To learn critical thinking that makes for good, reasoned choices,
And be a citizen of the world in all the best senses;
To expect a lot of yourself,
But care and cooperate for the good of all;
In sum, to feel the enthusiasm and fun
That make learning a lifetime pursuit -
These are the goals of Bentley School,
and the community inside and around it.
