The excellence of the faculty members at any school is a major factor in the quality of education you receive and this is one of the main advantages of attending PBA very supportive and qualified faculty. Failing is not an option.

EXCELLENT for Smart kids that need an individualized approach. Many kids that dont work well in TRADITIONAL schools and are subject to bullying, or are unconventional, can get in the business of learning, getting credits and focusing 100% in academics. It has no Athletic department and minimal social events. Perfect for kids that need extra supervising under freedom of working at their own pace. A lot come from great pr vate schools, are catching up coming from schools abroad, or faced setbacks such as sickness and come here to work under a rigurous program.

Excellent school! Teachers and staff are genuinely interested in each student receiving a quality education. My son has thrived here and I do not believe that he could have received a better education anywhere else!

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

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.
