    Overall Experience: Just wish an all-female equivalent of BC High existed for my daughter. I would not want to see BCHigh go coed because the all-male environment is central to its identity. Focusing boys of this age is so important. Not having the distraction of girls during the day is great. That being said, I would like to see BCHigh improve social access for boys in the junior & senior years. No idea why all the great coed opportunities done in freshman & sophomore years have to end. Not every boy has a good coed social network by the time they are upperclassmen. Would ABSOLUTELY pick this school again. In fact, our younger son is anxious to also attend. Great foundation for college including the experience of commuting (the vast majority of boys commute in on public transportation). Truly does transform a boy into a man.

    Resources & Facilities: Guidance counselors are excellent. Really helped my son figure out what kind of "fit" he was looking for in a college. Instead of just focusing on the highest ratings in US News & Report, my son has taken a less traveled path that is a carefully considered choice on his part. Excellent counseling on merit scholarship opportunities.

    Administration & Policies: Very committed administration although Headmaster invisible to students. I guess he is focused on fundraising, which is important to ensure economic diversity This is a school where sons of hardworking waitresses mingle with sons of CEOs—best of all, the boys thrive and learn from these different life experiences and perspectives. One year 4 immigrants ended up all going to Harvard together. One immigrant parent literally washed dishes to get her son through BCHigh. Truly inspiring for all to see this hard work pay off. I have mixed feelings about the mandatory iPad. Yes, it does save a lot of money on textbooks and yes, it does save student's backs. It is just very difficult for the boys in terms of distractions. But perhaps that is just a reality today and this must be worked through—best in high school rather than college.

    Academics: Cannot think of a truly bad teacher in the four years that my son has attended. Some teachers are truly inspiring. Amazing that my son is looking into theology studies in college! Never in a million years would we have anticipated that outcome.
