BSSS is the best school I have ever been to. It has a great dual curriculum where you learn about being Jewish and also learn about english, math, sceince and many other things. Not to mension that you learn a differrent language. It is eight years of terrific teachers and curriculum. The best school in Tenneessee. They have teachers who really want to help there students become smarter and well educated people. It has been the best eight years of my life. Great teacher who make learning fun and entertaining and interesting. I reccomend this school to any one who is Jewish. Plus in middle school you go on two great trips and at the end of middle school in eight grade you go on a wonderful trip to Israel. That I am looking foward to.

BSSS provides a student-centered education where support is provided so all students meet their potential in secular education, Judaic education, and socialization. The relationships between students, families, and faculty are like extended family.

this is my place of employment. I love the work and the children are my life. To just walk in the door each day and see the smiles on the staff and children's faces are such a joy. This is what it is all about! BSSS!

My son has attended Bornblum Solomon Schecter School for the last seven years and I have found the school to be excellent. One of most statisfactory aspect of the school's principles is the fact that almost 100 % of tutition is invested into the education programs at the schools..

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.
