This school is awesome. I myself, am in my Junior year and I've had so many life-long experiences with Enrichment opportunities and very knowledgeable teachers. It's a fair work-space and everyone wants the kids to succeed. The teachers care about the kids even with personal issues. Your child would love it here.
My son love it. It was his first year at BAL and he end up the year with a 95% avarage (A). The teachers really care about the studentest tha really want to learn. They even provide to my son their personal phone just in case he has questions on his homework. We really had a grate experience an looking to have a better year on 2012.
My child has had an horrible experience in this school! Upon entering this school she was placed in a self contained class in which she didn't belong. The excuse behind this was that her former school refused to forward her information. i asked the principal and staff members "If that was the case, Why wasn't her mother contacted?" The principal stated that she was sorry but she did what she thought was best for my child. My child has lost all academic hope in herself and has become depressed over this matter. I requested a written document in regards to this matter and the principal told me that she isn't comfortable in giving me a letter that will help me sue the school. This sounds like guilt to me. There is one aide there that has boosted my child's academic esteem. I appreciate her so much! Their are a few other staff members that are also apart of encouraging my child into the great endeavors that are before her. Saran
