Here are some examples of how our students open their hearts to help others.
Lower School students participate in a variety of service projects organized by the Lower School Student Government or grade level groups. The lower school works with organizations such as Ronald McDonald House, Boca Helping Hands, American Heart Association and other local charities.
Every April, Middle School students participate in a school-wide service project, Spring Into Action, in which they gather food and clothing to donate to 100 local families in need. Students pack grocery bags and organize a boutique with donated clothes, toys, and sporting goods. Families in need visit our campus to shop in the boutique and pick up their groceries.
The Middle School Student Government, National Junior Honor Society, and Advisory groups also adopt charities and work on projects to raise money and goods through donations for dress down days, sale of candy grams, and hosting dances and movie nights.
In High School we continue the emphasis on the importance of community service and the personal gratification that comes from assisting others. Students have a graduation requirement of a minimum of 100 hours of community service. NBPS also supports the International Baccalaureate Creativity, Action and Service Program, where students have to dedicate 150 hours of officially documented student-initiated activities.
