Bancroft teachers set high standards while also letting children have fun while learning.
Our Pre K-12 program allows our students to benefit from a coordinated curriculum that encourages interdisciplinary, student-centered instruction. Interdivisional projects include a book project that pairs first graders with seniors, while interdisciplinary initiatives include a joint History-English project on World Cultures.
In addition, an extensive curricular mapping program allows Pre K-12 teachers in all departments to collaborate on the scope and sequence of essential content, skills and assessments. Cross-curricular writing standards and common research guidelines provide a consistency of instruction that maximizes student learning.
Guidelines and programs aside, the general spirit of collegiality and love of children demonstrated by our experienced teachers best defines our teaching.
Teachers at Bancroft exude a contagious passion for their subjects in settings as diverse as a Lower School reading group or science lab, a Middle School advisory or math extra help session, and an Upper School seminar elective or college preparatory Advanced Placement course.
The Bancroft classroom is simultaneously a place to work hard and have fun, and our teachers are committed to fostering academic excellence in each and every student.
