BAC really doesnt care about their syudents unless they are in the TD and learning immersion programs. I literrally had no help in getting my son academic assistance. They just passed him along while i pleaded and literally cried for help. Only after i contacted the superintendents office did someone listen and it has been a struggle every since then. Recommend this school only if your child fits into the TD program ..if not they could care less.

BAC provides an excellent education, in a nurturing environment for those students who are in the TD and learning immersion programs, but it is not the same for the 'general' population of students. The students who are not in one of the 'special' programs at BAC are treated differently. I have been to every program that BAC has held and at every program the 'general' population of students have had very little to no speaking lines at all. The classrooms are also different. In the td and learning immersion classrooms there are more computers and the overall classroom environment is more inviting.

BAC provides an excellent learning environment. I have two children there. My son is in Talent Development (TD) and my dauther is in Horizons and both love it. The TD program offers a diverse student body a challenging curriculum. The Horizons program is an exceptionally unique program designed to challenge highly gifted children. BAC is the only CMS elementary school that offers the program. I strongly recommend Horizons for highly gifted children. BAC has been recognized numerous times as a 'School of Excellence.' This is a wonderful school.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 North Carolina used End-of-Grade (EOG) tests to assess students in grades 3 through 8 in reading and math, and grades 5 and 8 in science. The EOG is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of North Carolina. Students must pass the grade 8 EOG test in order to graduate from high school. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level on the tests.
