In 2008, Beatrice came to Solebury from the Princeton Friends School in New Jersey. As someone who began writing music as a young child, a school like Solebury—with the arts at its core and where creativity is actively fostered in all subjects—was just the right school. “Solebury allowed and encouraged me to be me,” she said from her home in Washington, DC. “I was able to explore any and all subjects I liked and was given the freedom to express my creativity in my school work—like making a music video about the digestive system for my biology final, and rapping about Hamlet for an 英语 project.”
