My child started attending this school since mid January and from there i seen great improvement in her reading, math, and writing. I believe the curriculum is great. Teachers and staff are very nice and welcoming. Dismissal is at 3:10 pm. I would totally recommend this school.

My child has been in this school for two years and i'm truly disappointed at the progress made. There is too much change in this school from the staff to the curriculum. I appreciate the school has an amazing arts program but they don't put enough emphasis on the education program. The executive director, Ms Brown is a very unfriendly person who I feel should not be in the elementary education field. Maybe she would be best in the middle or high school setting.

The administrators at this school are not on top of things especially in the area of curriculum and school law. The teachers come and go at this school and it is so unfair to the students. Parents should think carefully before sending their children to this school.

My son attends B.L.C.S and he has been there since the school first open.The teachers are pretty decent, he's learning alot of different studies ect.. But I dont like that the principal has changed since the school open and I dont like that the fact that he's had several different teachers and I understand that some teachers do move on to better their career. Overall the school is making really good progress and the parental involvement is one of the requirements for entering your student into the school.My son has spanish class,art and they just started a music program recently,they are giving recess each day and also school last up until 4pm not 3pm.
