Dear BFS Families,

Welcome to the 2023-2024 school year! We are excited to continue providing an excellent education and learning environment for our students.

The two division Principals, Ms. Lauren Harvey and Mr. Carl Brenneman, work together to ensure the smooth day-to-day operation of the school. As we continue to strengthen each Division, we also work to create a safe and enjoyable learning environment for all students.

Our faculty provides engaging learning experiences that help our students achieve academic, social, and emotional success. We build a strong literacy foundation at all levels and use globally recognized curricula to engage, teach, and challenge our students. We intentionally complement this with a positive community, effective management, and developmental awareness programs. BFS students also have access to a wide variety of academic, artistic, and athletic enrichment activities. In addition, we equip them with the tools and skills they need to be responsible, contributing, global citizens. Our SHARK schoolwide learner outcomes (SLOs) drive all that we do and form the basis of our value system.

We continue our professional learning and growth so that we are able to develop engaging units of study and high expectations for students.

We value our partnership with you, parents, and families. Together, we will support our students’ social and emotional health, provide them with rigorous academic growth, and meet our mission. Together we will live our motto, Embracing Diversity, Striving for Excellence.


Ms. Lauren Harvey,                                                       Mr. Carl Brenneman,
Early Childhood & Elementary Principal                    Upper School Principal

We know ALL our families by name.
