    A Montgomery County judge has dismissed a couple's lawsuit alleging that a top private school jeopardized their son's college career by not doing enough to help him.

    Judge David Boynton ruled Thursday that the parents of the boy, Robert and Valerie Bramson, didn't identify "any expressed term that was breached," The Daily Record reported.

    The couple had accused the Bullis School in Potomac, Md., of breaching its contract by failing to help after the boy received a poor grade, causing him to receive rejection letters from colleges.

    Their son, Max, received a D in honors biology, according to the Daily Record.

    Lawyers for the school argued that the couple didn't demonstrate any violations of the enrollment agreement, student handbook or school regulations.

    The family's attorney says the school violated oral agreements in advertisements that promoted "an extraordinary educational experience'' in a "nurturing environment.'' He expects to appeal.
