My child is in his fourth year at BMS and I couldn't be happier with the education that he is receiving. As a public educator, I can say that the education that my child is getting is heads and tails above that of the public school system. The elementary math curriculum that is used spirals so the students are continually being exposed to skills that are necessary for true understanding and students build upon each skill. Teachers are not forced to teach to a test and have the freedom to teach students skills that will help them succeed in the future, not just what they need to know for a test that year. My child is being challenged to THINK. Skills that are often overlooked in public education, such as phonics and spelling, are taught for true understanding of the written word. Small class size is one important key to the success of students. Students are able to thrive in a Christ centered environment. Extra curricular activities are available to middle and high school students, as well as musical and theatrical opportunities. I couldn't find a better school for my child and encourage any parent considering BMS to look a little closer. You will not be sorry.

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 »
