BJS is a tough review. The teachers are dedicated and the administration strict. Sadly, like any typical Catholic school, some kids get away with being disruptive because parents throw money at the school. As parents, my spouse and I didn't make much money and worked very hard to enroll our sons at Snyder. Our older son did not like it. He loved his teachers, but never felt like he fit in with his peers and came home crying very often. Still, he pushed through and I'm proud that he excelled in college, while many of his classmates barely got anywhere, despite a college prep education. This does not undermine the quality of the school's curriculum. Teachers always challenged the students, many whom were very spoiled and arrogant and brought it upon themselves. Our second son went later after the school had grown more and he loved it. Between both, I earned the trust of some teachers who vented with me their initial frustrations. More recently they have told me things have gotten much enter at BJS: the new incoming classes are more respectful and teacher morale has improved.

My daughter is so excited to learn. Although she has to get up at 6am to make it to school on time, she does it with a smile and a whistle. She usually is so hard to wake in the morning. On top of that she has 3 honors classes in the 9th grade and has to work hard, but she loves the community feel she gets at this school.

This is my son's first year at the school and so far, the feedback has been great. He is highly motivated by his teachers.

small school, friendly staff, college level, strict teachers, lunch was not at its full capacity, if you love PDA this is not the school for you. Everyone knows each other, still developing, gets bigger every year. Not many extracurrcular activites and dont offer a wide variety of class but great education and challenging courses.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
