"The teachers at BBS are amazing and the principal is very kind, supportive and involved. I started one of my kids at BBS last year and loved it so much I enrolled my other two school aged kids. The music, arts, PE and Spanish teachers are incredible. I really appreciate the low student teacher ratios as well. Its an amazing little school! I’m thankful to have found such a great school for my kids." -Niche.com
