The Bement School admits students of any race, color, sexual orientation, ancestry, religious affiliation, national and ethnic origin.
Our faculty and staff average 9.64 years of employment at Bement. Out of 69 employees, 27 have 10 or more years of service and 11 have 20 years or more; 32 hold advanced degrees; 33 are full time teaching faculty; 27 are parents of a student or alum; and 5 are Alumni.
Over 1/3 of our faculty have served as dorm-parents, so they know first-hand what life as a boarder can be like.

Faculty members are writers, carpenters, artists, coaches, yoga instructors, cooks, runners, and musicians. Outside of school you might encounter a staff-member coaching a high school football game; as the featured reader at an open-mic; running in a competitive relay across New Hampshire; being profiled in the Boston Globe; at an art opening; playing with the local symphony orchestra; releasing a CD at a coffee house; swinging a hammer building a house for Habitat for Humanity.
