The mission of Besant Hill School is to foster the development of each individual’s intellectual and artistic abilities. BHS believes that in today’s world being literate in reading, writing and arithmetic is not nearly enough.
To be truly literate, students must know and understand the world around them; to know how to relate and understand one another’s point of view and perspective; to be able to express their passions in and for what makes them tick; and to do it in an environment where a community celebrates our individual genius at each and every turn.
With nearly 30 offerings in music, performing arts, visual arts and digital arts, the arts at Besant Hill involve the whole person and affect the whole community. Rich in artistic history, our community has a long lineage of teachers who are professionals in the stage, film, music and visual art world in this country.
