#141: The Campus.
During the summer the campus offers 100 acres of beautiful fields and cross country trails. Spend time relaxing in the shade or take a few minutes to sit by the pond. Fall is the best time to enjoy foliage in New England and our campus is no exception! SBS is gorgeous during the first few months of fall! Come winter grab a sled and head out to sled on one of the hills. The one behind the gym is the steepest but the one on the side of the school has jumps built in! In the spring spend a few minutes relaxing on the swing in the oval and enjoying the sunshine. The arrival of crocuses and daffodils brighten things up and help to chase away winter blues! Check out some photos of campus here.
#140: The Academics.
We are a college preparatory school and offer a number of honors and AP classes. We were founded in 1869 with the mission of educating young women and our mission is the same today. In addition, one of the benefits of being a small school is the variety of electives we can offer. From political science to botany our electives change along with students interests. Throughout the course of the year there are a number of electives available to students in English, history, the arts and sciences.
#139: The Class Size.
Classes generally range in size from 8-10 girls. What does that mean? Well, for starters it means that your teachers will always know your name…and whether you’ve done your homework! In addition, small classes offer the chance to engage in thoughtful, in-depth dialogue with your teachers and fellow classmates on a daily basis!
#138: The Food.
Stoneleigh-Burnham School has a wide variety of food available for breakfast, lunch and dinner. There is always a hot entree which changes with each meal. In addition, there is a salad bar available each day for lunch and dinner along with homemade soups, pasta/rice, and all the fixings for sandwiches. On weekends, head downstairs for eggs to order and waffles as part of our delicious brunch. You don’t have to worry about eating well while you’re at SBS!
#137: The Mailboxes.
Each student at Stoneleigh-Burnham is assigned her own mailbox each year. Letters, packages, graded work and college news all arrive in your personal mailbox on a day to day basis. Everyone loves getting mail from home!
