I am a current student at BCCS. This school may be great academically, but its behavior issues between students and bullying speaks a lot louder than their academics. This school is full of drama. So if you do not want your child around drama or bullying, I personally do not recommend this school.

While this school is great in the academic area, you are nothing if you are not a teacher's kid or an athlete. Bullying is quite a buzz word, but it is like a plague at this school. A few teachers are very caring and supportive, but the majority pretend that this bullying is mere "play". Please be cautious.
