Recent article in the BDH about BSHS: BSHS educates both Brown grad students and local high schoolers

For three and a half weeks each July, a handful of classrooms on Brown’s campus transform into a mini-high school of sorts, hosting around 300 Providence-area students and providing the University’s secondary school teaching candidates with hands-on classroom experience.

The experience is part of Brown Summer High School, which just completed its 38th year.

“It’s rare that you have a program last as long as it’s lasted and remain both viable and valuable,” said Eileen Landay, an adjunct senior lecturer in the Department of Education who directed the program for 14 years until the summer of 2005. “Though it often goes under the radar of other students and faculty, it’s been an important part of the University’s relationship with the community.”
