Academics: Faculty/Staff Listing

 

Anatole France, a French writer, once said that "nine-tenths of education is encouragement." No quotation better embodies the Bement faculty's commitment to our students. Some teachers have been at Bement more than forty years; for others this is a first. Faculty members are alumni, current parents, and past parents. Most are coaches, and several are dorm parents. All come to school each day, ready to "live and learn as a family."

To contact our faculty by email, type:
