Battle Ground Academy is a wonderful school. Our son attended public school before attending BGA and WOW what a difference. He loves BGA! The faculty is great and the 'family feel' you get from being involved in the school is a great feeling.

Battle Ground Academy is an excellent independent school. We have two children who graduated from BGA and have been very successful in college. Both attended top tier universities and graduated above a 3.5 grade point averages. We attribute their college success to the excellent college preparation they received at BGA. We would highly recommend BGA to any family who considers education a priority. Remember - you have one opportunity to provide your children with a good education - why settle for good when you can get great. Check out BGA, you will being doing your family a great service.

BGA is 'full of themselves'. They sell themselves as a college prep school, but when you consider where the kids go after graduation, most go to middle tier colleges (Univ. of TN, Midd. TN State). We have 2 children there and do not feel they have been challenged. It's not worth $13,000 a year for an 'adequate' education. Grassland and Franklin High offer wonderful programs and I believe challenge your kids.

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 »
