This school strongly misleads parents into thinking there child is getting a better education, when in fact it is setting the students so much further behind than when they started. They have no set curriculum and truly don't have a idea of what they are doing. There idea is good, but not not anywhere close to achieving the education these child deserve and need.

Don't read the previous comments and think the staff is really that caring, they only care about your child if you give them something like work there as a volunteer. If your are unable to do something for them, your child gets a bad deal. First off, the number to the school is wrong, the website is awful and full, and they meet in a cold barn out of the way. My son is a great kid, he started getting attitude and his grades came down. When it came around to parent/teacher conferences they never set that up me, so I went to talk to the teacher, she actually walked away in the middle of our conversation! I found out that he was being punished everyday, and they didn't bother to tell me. He gave up on himself, I am still trying to undo what this awful school did! Think twice about field trips, especially if you have a teen or preteen, they are very poorly supervised. I went on one and had to constantly deal with things the staff ignored, and they had no clue that preteens were hid in the bushes! I overheard one preteen say that they only had to mind the P.E.. The P.E. only teaches karate. I know karate, I still wonder what he was doing! THIS IS JUST THE TIP OF THE ICEBERG!!

BCS isn't just a school, it is a family. Small class sizes means more personal attention for each student and their individual needs.

Ballston helped my son when no one else could. The teachers only have half of the student load of a "regular" school so my kids get lots of individual attention. Having a PEP to know exactly how they learn best is key to a great education!

My son with special needs has been attending Ballston Community School now for 4 years, and his atypical brother for 3. They are both learning in an environment where the classes are small with more one-on-one. The family atmosphere is a definite bonus, along with teachers who are patient and understanding of those who need special attention.

Because the kids get individual attention and no one falls through the cracks of the system just because they don't conform to "normal" standards.

This shool teaches to the child. The staff work hard to make relationships with the kids and from there builds on academics. Great for educationally beat up children.
