This school is a very sneaky and secretive. There is a lot of unfair and immoral activity that I have discovered the administration is up to. The school hardly spends any money on each student. Students would receive better care, more financial investment, and a better overall education in one of the local public schools. I withdrew my child from the school and he is now attending a nearby public elementary school. I am much happier with the current school than I was with BCA.
A wonderful warm environment with amazing caring teachers. After homeschooling for 7 years this was a great choice for me to transition my kids to a private school. Highly recommended. Curriculum should be more stringent but it balances out with other activities the kids engage in. Many clubs after school and many competitions for chess, qualifying Math Team, Spelling Bee, Japanese School and sports.
Great school, high academics, excellent teachers with small classrooms--- all in all provide the perfect environment for learning. We switched from a much more expensive private school for "gifted" children to this school due to the higher expectations of their proven curriculum. Principal is the best---test scores on national tests are generally a grade or 2 higher across the board. This school does not disappoint!
Probably the best private PreK, K and elementary school in Washington State. Phenomenal principal who blends insights from all over the world: US, Singapore and Japan. Outstanding curriculum, only matched or exceeded by two schools the kids attended outside of Washington State. Bottom line: you want the best for your kid(s), this school comes highly recommended.
This school has excellent educational standards (1-2 grade levels above public) and offers a balanced approach to education (all students get art, music, drama, PE, spanish, world studies in addition to math, science, english, and social studies). I love that classes are 12 students or less and the teachers are allowed to be specialized (your homeroom teacher is either math/science or english/social studies and kids see multiple teachers for different subjects, while still having a home base all day). The only two drawbacks to this school are: 1. due to high educational standards, there is a bit too much homework, even for the PreK and K kids. 2. it costs a lot of money
