With collaborative, experiential, and traditional methods, Bitney imbues our students with profound curiosity, a love of learning, and a clear sense of self direction.
We're Different Because You're Different
At Bitney, we aim high academically. Teachers are expected to meet or exceed the California State Educational Standards for each discipline. Teachers are encouraged to do so in interesting unique, collaborative, and diversified ways; and by as much as possible; rolling up their sleeves with the students and “doing.”
WE FOCUS ON PRACTICAL APPLICATIONS, NOT JUST COLLEGE APPLICATIONS
Inspiring students to be ready for life and relevant to the world.
Yes, we can prepare you for college...more than that, Bitney's core mission is to prepare our students for life. Our curriculum is designed around the new three R’s; Rigor, Relevance, and Relationships; we do this by knowing each student, respecting them and educating them as individuals.
