The mission of Besant Hill School is to foster the development of each student’s intellectual and artistic abilities. We believe that in today’s world, just being literate in reading, writing, and arithmetic is not nearly enough.
To be truly literate, students must know and understand the world around them. They must know how to relate and appreciate one another’s point of view and perspective. They need to be able to express their passions in and for what makes them tick, and do so in an environment where a community celebrates our individual genius at each and every turn. The college prep classes at Besant Hill School go beyond just academic-focused studies.
With nearly 30 offerings in music, performing arts, visual arts, and digital arts, the arts at Besant Hill School 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.
