School Reviews

  • Recommended October 16, 2014 - BCD is a great school filled with kids who love learning, parents who want their children to meet their potential and faculty to see, know and love their students. Our son has loved it. We moved him from Boulder public schools and he had three things to share: he''s more challenged which he likes; he gets to participate in class more because the classes are smaller; and he loves his teachers. We were worried about the size but that hasn''t been an issue. He''s made good friends and he loves it. We couldn''t be happier and we''d recommend it without hesitation! - Posted by Parent
