#82: Tapioca Pudding.

And not just tapioca...vanilla, butterscotch and chocolate too! According to several students, pudding is definitely one of the things to love about SBS!

#81: Walking Off Campus.

Craving a coffee? It's less than a mile to the nearest Dunkin Donuts. Wishing for some ice cream? Friendly's is just a hop skip and a jump away. SBS is within walking distance of hairdressers, food and a pharmacy. The girls can also borrow one of the school's fleet of bikes if they need to get somewhere quickly. Just sign out with your houseparent and you're on your way!

#80: Skits.

Not just once a year but multiple times a year Stoneleigh-Burnham faculty and staff gather together to write and rehearse a skit for the students. It happens during Spirit Week, it happens before winter break and it happens (for each senior) the night before graduation. It's easy to see what a close knit community SBS truly is by watching one of the skits!

#79: Boarding Students.

As one graduating senior told me last year, "SBS isn't just my home away from home, over the last four years it's actually become my home." Boarding students are an important part of our community, bringing life and laughter to the halls of Stoneleigh-Burnham School long after the academic day has ended.

#78: Veritas Supra Omnia.

Our motto, veritas supra omnia or truth above all reminds each of us to live with honor and integrity each day whether we are in classes or on the athletic fields.
