Why BWL

Why Choose BWL?

If you ask any one of our 300+ families, you will more than likely get more than 300 unique answers. That’s because a BWL education is personally tailored to each individual student’s strengths and passions.

The Best Student-Teacher Ratio on the Upper East Side

Our commitment to a close-knit community means that every student benefits from a strong and responsive relationship with their teacher. We boast a 4:1 student-teacher ratio, which is among the best offered by comparable schools.*

A Rigorous Curriculum That Encourages Individual Differences

Our academic mission is to stimulate and challenge each student's growth in an ambitious college-preparatory educational program that functions more like a home of learning than a pressure cooker. 

Signature Programs with Premiere Partners

Only through our signature programs can your students develop an actual business from idea to reality, take a Harvard Law School course, study in another country, or work directly with the Social Impact Institute, the Constructive Dialogue Institute, and the Let Grow Project (to name a few). We believe education should go beyond the classroom to give students a chance to explore their interests.

"BWL offers programs that prepare students for success in their future endeavors. The teachers go above and beyond to provide personalized attention and guidance to all students, ensuring that no one is left behind."
