i have 2 boys in this school and i know it is the best decision i have made thus far in their lives. they love their school, the teachers are excellent, parents that send their children to this school know how special a place it is. there are many other great schools in the area but most are traditional and basically study for tests and test taking. this school is hands on learning, nurturing, stimulating, challanging, and creates a very independent, self confident child. i can't say enough about this school.

BHMS is a great school. Every child receives individual attention and is eager to participate in group discussions. The teachers are well trained to communicate with the kids.

This school is the best and I am a fanatic of a mom, (the type that does her homework about everything!!) I could not have made a better choice. The teachers are outstanding and the Montessori philosophy proves to work with children. Visit the school, it's an amazing place!

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.

Oops! We currently do not have any teacher information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.

What makes a great teacher? Study after study shows the single most important factor determining the quality of the education a child receives is the quality of his teacher. Here are some characteristics to look for »
