BCS is a really strong school for academics and extracurriculars. The current principal, Teri Geist, has done a stellar job at recruiting and supporting an amazing group of teachers. The community that attends this school is very engaged, with extremely strong parental involvement - this makes lots of the "extras" possible. The community is also pretty wealthy, which means that the Foundation raises a lot of money every year. This also makes a lot of "extras" possible, including additional teaching staff. The school does suffer from overcrowding, because it is so popular - for example, my child is in a class of 30 this year, which is a lot of 7 year olds. Overall, it's a very high quality public school experience. Socially, it would be better if there were more diversity in every way.

Develops character: Strongly disagree

Staff follow standardized processes for everything which leaves no room for individualized instruction or mentoring.

All three of my kids have attended this school. It has three campuses - each with a relatively small campus size. The teachers are excellent, and the parent community and neighborhood are very inolved and caring. Couldn't be happier!

This school is awesome & has a great community supporting it. I didn't give 5 stars for 2 reasons: 1) I wish this school was a little more diverse in it's student population but the school has no control over that. And 2) I really wish the teachers wouldn't give the kids candy as often as they do. It seems like a couple times a week my kids are coming home with candy in their backpacks or talking about how their teach gave them candy in class. It's not really neccasary.

We love this school! It has a great community that is very involved and wonderful teachers that really care about the students!

i left this school in 5th grade because it was boring, I didn't like most of the teachers, and the structure was to traditional and didn't allow students to learn anything worth learning. a complete waste of time.
