This is a great school and offers a great program of choice, and normal. The choice is a more hands-on community and normal Platt is what you would expect and more for education, support, and overall schooling.

Platt Choice is a horrible school and they failed our child. Our 13-year-old daughter was just diagnosed with dyslexia from private testing that we paid for. BVSD should have caught this in 2nd grade. She is two grade levels behind and will require private tutoring 3 days a week to catch up. The teachers and staff are awful and don't care about the kids. Our daughter can barely read and write but she is woke and thinks that she is a boy. Misplaced priorities. Don't send your children here if you care about their education.
