There is no room for students who have individual needs and do not tow the "party line."

The close minded bigotry that we northerners associate with the deep South has permeated the Jewish community of Memphis and has spilled over into this school. Note that no positive comments have been posted since 2011. Is this before the current administration?




- a
Everything I have heard about this school is incredibly upsetting.



- a
I wouldn't send my worst enemy to this school. They are closed minded, and in the dark ages.



- a
The Head of School is a misogynistic tyrant. I don't feel that the children in his care are emotionally safe!


Effective school leaders: Strongly disagree

The headmaster is a bigot and neither the board nor community cared enough to remove him.



- a
I will never forget the suffering my family has and continues to endure because of the school administration, board and community.

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.



- a
Great teacher parent ratio and teachers and administrative staff really do love the kids.
