School Reviews

Our daughter enrolled at BCD this year as a 5th grader and we have had an extremely positive and supportive experience at BCD from the start! The campus and community is warm and welcoming. We were extremely impressed with the language, arts, music and extracurricular activities that are offered at BCD. It's as if the school were made for our daughter - she absolutely LOVES BCD, and the transition was virtually seamless. Enrolling at BCD has truly been the best thing we could have done for our daughter and our family.
