This week's edition of THE LIFE is an interview with graduating senior Olufunke S. with ninth grader Meghan H. about Olufunke's CAS project, a documentary film about the experiences of young women of color at Brooklyn Friends School. CAS, which stands for Creativity, Activity, Service, is an integral part of the IB Diploma Program and all students participate, often producing a capstone project right before graduation. Olufunke's film is a compelling and honest lens into the lives of young women of color; it has universal appeal, offering insight and knowledge for all members of the BFS community. Please take some time to watch these stories of the LIFE at BFS by students & about students.

We challenge our students to value and embrace difference as they develop critical thinking skills and apply their knowledge and intelligence both in and out of the classroom. In this rich learning environment, we inspire all members of our community to voice their convictions, to discover and pursue their passions, and to seek truth. Our graduates are compassionate, curious, and confident global citizens who let their lives speak in the spirit of leadership and service.
