BB&N -简史

白金汉布朗 & 365bet体育, a coeducational day school in 剑桥, was established in 1974, though its origins date back nearly a century earlier.

BB&N came into existence through the merger of two schools in 剑桥—the Browne & 365bet体育, a school for boys founded in 1883 by one-time Harvard classmates George H. 布朗和埃德加·H. 尼克尔斯; and the Buckingham School, established six years later at the corner of Buckingham Street and Buckingham Place by Jeannette 3月kham, a transplanted Kansan who had come to 剑桥 to study at what would later become known as Radcliffe College. Buckingham School (originally Miss 3月kham’s School) was coeducational at the youngest grades, and for girls only at the higher grades.

The two schools operated independently for decades, but were collaborating on theater productions and music concerts by the 1950s, and started offering joint classes in 1970. The formal merger that created 白金汉布朗 & 尼克尔斯 became effective on New Year’s Day, 1974.

BB&N today offers a premier educational experience to students in grades Beginner (pre-K) though 12 on three campuses united in the singular pursuit of educational excellence.

学校的传统

A variety of school traditions mark the BB&N日历一些老, 一些新, some celebrated by one school or another, and some celebrated by the entire school community.

 

所有学校的传统

  • 马戏团 ——游戏, 游乐设施, 娱乐, crafts—just about everything you'd expect of a circus, -狮子. This nearly 70-year-old annual event, held at the Lower School, raises money for financial aid.
  • 查尔斯号船首 - Join the festivities at BB&N's Eliot Bridge boathouse, an enviable venue from which to watch—or compete in—the world's largest rowing regatta, held each October on the Charles River.

Lower 学校的传统

  • 五朔节花柱 - A fixture on the spring calendar dating back to Buckingham School days.
  • 灵魂蛋糕 - 5th graders don Colonial-era togs and perform music of the period at this event held around (and influenced by) Halloween.
  • 教师对. Students Kickball game - Kids and teachers put their best feet forward in this much-anticipated and fiercely contested event, a late-spring rite of passage for Lower Schoolers.

Middle 学校的传统

  • 感恩的一天 - Middle Schoolers give thanks the day before Thanksgiving via a wide range of 社区服务 projects on campus and in the region.

Upper 学校的传统

  • 露营 - Outdoor education and team-building in the shadow of Mt. 残丘. 露营, at the start of 9th grade, peels back the veneer students bring to school while teaching skills vital for success, like how to cope with the unexpected and the importance of mutual support among classmates.
  • 高级小品 - The gloves come off as seniors "roast" faculty members, and are themselves "roasted" right back at this playful, 巧妙的, and irreverent end-of-year event.
  • 同学会 - Football and other fall sports, school spirit, and other autumnal pageantry...
  • 初级资料 - Juniors write in-depth profiles of some person-rich or poor, famous or not-who intrigues them, diving beneath surface and stereotype to reveal depth of character.
  • 高级项目 - Seniors plan and carry out an independent project-linked to academic goals, 社区服务, 职业理想, or other interests-during their final two months of school.

只是为了校友/ ae

  • 草莓之夜 - It's party time for grads young and old during 校友/ ae reunion weekend, in May (when the berries are ripe).
