The school isn't much for looks, not as nice as NSID schools. It has been a wonderful place for my son. He loves his pre-K teacher, Mrs. Hooti, she's an amazing teacher. He's learned allot, likes to come to school, learn, play with his classmates, sing and learn his letters.
My daughter has been@ BCA since Pre K3 she is now going into 2nd grade. She has learned so much @ BCA, Mr Sims is a very nice and he is very wonderful with the kids. Ms Jan, Ms Mc Kerrow, Ms Janet, Mr Nelson are also great teachers and staff. They are very kind and carring to the children. Ms Mc Kerrow has taught my daughter so much. Mr Smith is one of the after school teachers and he helps my daughter with her math and he has gotten her to understand it better. i love the school and the staff is great... Thank you BCA...
I love these kids and the staff at this school. I taught here and witnessed the commitment by the staff and teachers. Resources are scarce but the children liked it here and the size of the school allowed students, staff and teachers alike to get to know each other, and watch the children grow through each grade. I believe the children will be better off for the experience, despite not achieving Exemplary status yet.
I love this school my child has been attending BCA since Pre-k3...he will be going to 1st grade next year...the teachers are wonderful, the staff is amazing...its nice to hear 'good moring' when im dropping off my child and its nice that mostly all teachers and staff remember who u are and remember almost evert students name...my other child will be attending BCA next year....
I love bexar county academy charter school it is awsome and the teachers are helpful and the kids are nice!
I have twin daughters that are in pre-k and they have learned so much even though I was not sure about separating them. They both have learned a lot like their planets and much more. I really like the staff and love their teachers they both have a unique way of teaching.
So far i have no complaint everythingis been terrific, Ms. Morin is super nice & easy to talk to, this is my daughter's second year in p-k & i have to say she did learn different stuff,as for elementary i haven't been digging around to make comments. We love bca
My daughters are in Kinder & Prek3 this is their first yr. So far I have no complaints & I love it.
Very poor organization. No school nurse. However, Pre-K is awesome! They are like another school all together! Very well organized & structured. Good job Ms.Yazdani (my child's teacher) & all Pre-K staff!
My son attends bca as a pre-kinder and for the most part I am satisfied with the school. His teacher seems to be willing to teach and my son has learned quite a bit. Untill recently I had no reason to question the school but I came across some very rude faculty and staff. I did not appreciate the way I was treated as a parent and the way my situation was handled. I beleive that the faculty and staff need more training in dealing with parents and students.
I have got to say that this school never ceases to amaze me with their lack of organization. I don't think my child is getting the deal of a lifetime here. I understand charter schools do not have to follow 'normal' regulations, well, that shouldn't be reason to slip into the cracks. This school needs a major overhaul. My child will not return to Bexar County Academy.
I am a teacher at BCA and we teachers do spend quality one- on- one time with our students. There is no limit for the amount of time we can spend with your children. Many of us stay after school and on weekends to help our students succeed. We have wonderful faculty members and I would gladly send my child to BCA.
I think BCA is an below average class. The teachers are okay, but most of them seem inexperianced. My child likes school, but I find that the one-on-one teaching is not as great as I would like it to be. I was told that there is a limit on the time a teacher can spend on a student and I find that surprising. I thought that was a job of a teacher. I put my child's education first and formost, and for that reason I am glad I will be sending my child to another school next year. If you look at the schools stats, there not impressive. The bullying is an issue also. They need to make major improvements to that school!
My child is in Pre-K. BCA is a school where the children come first.Each child is encouraged to do their best. Ms. Yazdani always praised the children, greeted with smiles the parents and children. She is highly skilled and a graet teacher. My child learn more than she need. Also, the principal is kind, visible and a great leader. I love this school.
I would like to thank you all for the hard work you put in both my children's life. This year I have seen a huge change in my sons' work and respect. My kids both come home and look forward in doing their homework to gain an A. I never heard a 6 years old respond to a parent wanting to do his homework. Most kids want to play with toys and watch TV. But they way this year has been a different year compared from last years, way so much different. My son had a rough time last year and the faculty and staff did a great job this year, from the administration down to the staff, my sons have pride in themselves. They pay more attention and show lots of respect. Thank you teachers and staff for taking care of my sons, they are in good hands!
The quality of academic programs are great, the teachers are always updating me on my children s improvement, parents are always willing to volunteer to help out for every activity--great school--Im very happy with this school. All the faculty and staff are very good to work with. The school is very well kept and all children are treated equally. The staff/teacher aides are one of the reasons for its excellence (along with their unquestionable commitment and dedication); my children are very smart, thanks for your help. I also can t forget the most important part that is the principal Ms. Gemma, my children can t stop talking about how much they enjoy in the school, always visible and talk to the parents. Her plan of activities are magnificent like the Harvest Carnival and forthcoming Mama s Boy on November 30 and December 1. Ms. Gemma s ideas are outstanding and marvelous. The school is in good hand because she takes good care of the students, staff and parents. This year is an awesome! I will highly recommend this school to all my relatives and friends. You are all great!
This school had totally made a 360-degree turn around. I've been in this school for 3 years and I like the changes made by the new administration under the leadership of Ms. Hernandez. Many extra-curricular activities to choose from and the homework policy -Monday to Thursday had a great impact to my child. Parents Need TO Follow The Rules And Regulations Of The School. I believe they are organize. Their smiles are awesome and contagious! BCA keep it up. We are staying in this school now.
Great school with a positive environment! zero tolerance is very important among staff and administration.
Administration is very rude,not helpful,not aware of procedures. It is very unorganized as well. I'm very disappointed in this school.
