  • I go to this school, as an 8th grader in the class of 2015. (going in the 2010-2011 year). This school has become my home and supplies me with the best education. I thank you, BAMS, for all that you have done for me to prep me for BAHS, which will prep me for college, which will in turn, prep me for the real life.

  • I'm giving the school my children attend an A+ in curriculum and an A+ in their teaching abilities. I downgraded the overall grade because BAMS has a serious bullying problem and they do not do well handling it. This part of their agenda needs a SERIOUS upgrade.
