School Reviews

Our son transferred from a public high school to BGA and we couldn''t be more pleased! The staff, teachers (some doctorate level), and parents have been so welcoming to our family. Our son was coasting by with a 3.4 at the public school. At BGA, he''s fighting for his grades and learning vital study and time management skills. When speaking with college recruiters, BGA is a definite ice breaker. Recruiters are falling over themselves to get to our kids. I highly, highly recommend the BGA experience to a parent who wants their child to succeed in life and be around others who want the same.

My daughter has had a wonderful 5 years in the Lower School. She has been nurtured, supported and loved by the Lower School teachers. As well, Dr. Graham, the principal, is a tremendous administrator and the kids and parents love him! I would strongly suggest that you visit the school.
