At Bullis, we believe the best education is achieved by immersing students in academics, arts, and athletics. Signature programs—in STEM, entrepreneurship, visual and performing arts, and humanities and global studies—give students unlimited opportunities to discover and develop academic strengths. Robust arts and athletics programs round out the educational experience for students from Kindergarten through 12th grade. Bullis leads the way in 21st century educational approaches. Our unparalleled facilities include a new 70,000-sq-ft Discovery Center, home to the makerspace in the Bullis Innovation and Technology Lab, the entrepreneurship center known as the Innovation Lab, the Studio Theater, flexible and collaborative learning spaces, a café, and other gathering spaces. These spaces help teachers engage student imagination. Located on 100-acre campus in Potomac, Bullis provides its highly diverse student body an educational environment to learn, grow, discover passions, reach potential, and develop tools to succeed in college and beyond.
