FOOD DELIVERIES FOR STUDENTS
Attention Parents and Students:
Please be aware that food deliveries from outside vendors such as Door Dash, Uber Eats and Grub Hub will not be allowed to deliver food to the Royal campus unless it is during our scheduled lunch time. Students may not leave class to receive food deliveries. Food may only be delivered to the front office and not delivered over the fence or through the gates. The office will not accept fountain drinks or any drink that does not have a sealed lid. The student's name must be clearly labeled on the food item. Failure to follow these guidelines will jeopardize any food delivery services at Royal High School.
ST. ROSE OF LIMA PARKING LOT
Attention Parents and Students: Please do not use the St. Rose of Lima Parking Lot to drop off and pick up your students. They have asked us to relay that their parking lot has had very heavy traffic and their parents can't get in to pick up their students from their own school. You can meet your students off of Arcane in the back of the school, on Hudspeth to the East of the school, or in either parking lot. Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.

DETAILS: BSC is now striving to prepare students for all aspects of the modern world, with high-tech facilities and a more global curriculum. More than half the student body participates in community service through the Bunting Center for Engaged Study and Community Action, and attentive faculty add to a sense of commitment to both personal and community growth. A junior says BSC is a good choice for those students who “want to spend four years preparing, maturing, and challenging their minds so that they can make a difference in the world.”
The Explorations general education curriculum is designed to help students develop effective communication and problem-solving skills, connect with their social and political world, and direct their own learning. It comprises 32 units across several disciplines, including fine and performing arts, social sciences, natural sciences, and humanities, as well as three global and local citizenship courses. All freshmen take an introductory first-year seminar, and all seniors complete a capstone experience and a public presentation of their work. The Explorations term, a four-week term between the fall and spring semesters, allows students to explore new areas of study, from cooking lessons to travel in China.
The courses at BSC are “somewhat competitive” and “challenging but not impossible,” according to one senior. Each student is assigned a faculty member who serves as his or her academic advisor from freshman convocation to graduation, an arrangement that students praise for its effectiveness. Equal praise goes out to faculty in the classrooms, where 65 percent of classes have fewer than 20 students. An education major says professors “love to challenge our beliefs and ideas by making us defend what we think.” The honors program allows 25 exceptional first-year students to take small seminars with one or more professors. The Krulak Institute coordinates opportunities for experiential learning, such as service-learning projects, study abroad programs, and an entrepreneurial scholars program.
BSC Student Perspective: “Students want to spend four years preparing, maturing, and challenging their minds so that they can make a difference in the world."
