I love this school!!!!!!!! My child has gone to BSS for two years now and we love it. She is learning so much!! She also is really advance for her age b/c of this school. I couldn't say enough good things about the teachers and the enviroment at BSS.

BSS used to be a great school. For whatever reasons (probably financial), they lost some great teachers and took on some students that were not allowed to be in other schools. This created a very different (and unacceptable) learning environment. Unfortunately, after having children in parochial schools for over 20 years, we found it necessary to place our child in a good public school. We are amazed at how much more she has learned.

This school does have it's issues. I agree with the first review,but, My favorite thing about this school is the parent atmosphere, and my child feels safe at school. That means the world to me. They have the greatest First and Second grade teachers in the world. But this school does need to work on the administration part of it. too bad there is not a Fine Arts Program the students would benefit tremendously.

All schools have politics. My children have flourished in this school. Students graduate ready to excel in high school. Children are not students in this school, they are members of a family. A family that works tirelessly to help them grow academically and spiritually. BSS students consistently place #1 or #2 in diocesan standardized testing. Last year 100% of the students who applied to magnet programs were accepted. 50% of the graduating class applied for magnet program. They are definetly doing something right.

This use to be one of the best schools around for the money. The secretarial staff keeps secrets from parents - we don't have a right to know anything unless we brown nose to them. The priest takes no part or effort in children. Has gone down hill.

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 student 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.
