Burlington Day School is not merely a campus of students and teachers. We are an inclusive community of families and educators, who share with parents a commitment to inspiring and educating children. We are a community where older students interact with younger children in various activities and programs. We are a community that embraces families who value excellence in education, a love of learning, and who desire to be highly involved in the life of the school.
A nurturing environment, quality academics, exposure to the arts and foreign language, regular physical education, personalized attention – all these are hallmarks of BDS. Ours is a school where students thrive in small classes and teachers are able to focus on each student's needs. Our rigorous curriculum features Spanish as a foreign language, develops age-appropriate critical thinking skills, stimulates creativity in music and the fine arts, and uses technology to support the learning process.
The Middle School Division consists of the sixth through eighth grades. BDS faculty and the Director of Admission, along with parental input determine a student’s placement. Classes in the Middle School Division are departmentalized with instruction given by subject area teachers.
