St. Bernard’s offers able young boys of diverse backgrounds an exceptionally thorough, rigorous, and enjoyable introduction to learning and community life. We wish to inspire boys to value hard work and fair play, to develop confidence, consideration for others, and a sense of citizenship, and to have fun while doing these things.
A good heart is as valuable as a well-stocked, well-trained head.
Middle School boys were treated to a visit from author Steve Sheinkin on February 14, 2018. This lecture was made possible by the Kronengold Authors Fund, which was established in 2016 by sixteen Old Boys who wanted to honor their former second-grade teacher, Ms. Kronengold, who taught them how to write and inspired a lifelong passion for reading.
On Saturday, February 3, St. Bernard’s math team competed in the annual MATHCounts Manhattan competition at Baruch College. The nine members of the team qualified by earning the highest scores on a preliminary exam that was given to all St. B’s students in Grades VI - VIII last fall.
Recently some signs have appeared in St. B’s hallways announcing the online publication of the Middle School newspaper, the 98th Street Post. We chatted with Maximilien P., the editor in chief, in an exclusive interview.
