I love BT! This is my daughter's first year, and she wakes up so excited and ready to learn and play! Not only is she blossoming academically, but spiritually! I am realizing that every rule and procedure set forth is there for a very good reason; and it is obvious how much hard work and dedication goes
... Read more into this "well oiled machine," by not only the staff, but the parents. There are two things that I can say that I dislike. One, uniforms are expensive and wear fast! There is only one place to buy them; and they charge way too much. The "used uniform sales" are just silly because these uniforms are always in bad shape. Three months in and my daughters shirts are so faded! Two, I wish that the student to teacher ratio was smaller. My daughter attended a school in kindergarten where she received a lot of attention and guidance from her teacher. Her teacher at BT is great, but is just too busy to give much attention to students individually, therefore not knowing them enough to give solid feedback to parents(also keep in mind it's 3 months into the school year). Overall, I am happy with this school and will keep my daughter there, and one day put my younger daughter there also. Read less

BT is a great school. There is no place else that I would send my child. The comfort of knowing that my child is being surrounded by like minded values is priceless.

We should have known from the start what we were in for. When your preschooler is getting written up for...being a preschooler, it's a bit ridiculous. My husband and I both grew up in catholic schools, so BT was an obvious choice for us. After four years of this it was obvious we had made the wrong
... Read more choice. The school and the church are about money. There is no tolerence for children acting like children, and the staff involvement and communication is not satisfactory what so ever. In our last year there our child was written up within the first week of school, and later in the year for putting stickers all over. We had requested several meetings with the teacher only to get demeaning notes home. We were on the fence about switching schools until our child came home with half of their hair cut off, and the principal dismissing it. Then we were called and asked to make a decision because they had children on the waiting list if ours was not returning! We're only two months in at the new school and our child is excelling tremendously (and hasn't been written up once!) Read less

It seems to me the reason that many of us make the commitment to a private education for our children is to ensure proper guidance, challenging and advanced curriculum, and an environment that provides a safety net to protect them from negative influences. It is true that BT is selective in accepting
... Read more applicants, but ethnicity seems to be diverse. The theory is to educate the whole child by including instilling morals and values and fostering lasting relationships among students. Bullying is not tolerated and the Ten Commandments are expected to be upheld. The goal is to educated child in all aspects of life,so that he or she may be a positive contributor to society in the future. The children know the rules as do the parents and we are all expected to follow them. Overall my daughter has done a complete turn around since entering the school five years ago, she was already doing well scholastically, but her ability to show concern for others and to be a caring friend and role model to others has blossomed beautifully though her teachings at school. Not every child or every parent will understand and appreciate the program, but we sure love it! Read less

I read some of the other posts with a negative tone concerning race and 'selectiveness' of race for the sole purpose of athletics and that is completely preposterous! This person sounds like a person with more excuses than a hard look at the reality of whatever his/her situation was with her child or

If you do it out of the love of your child's education, you will be all over the place and make great friends who are just as dedicated. If you go in with an attitude you will post like some of the other negative posters on this site. The school is fantastic and I love (as the other poster mentioned) how BT will not put up with bad behavior. Read less

Parent involvment is very high. I am appreciative (unlike other posters) that the BT administration personnel will not put up with behavior problems. Children are there to learn and our children have that ability. In addition, other than what other negtive posters wrote, there is cultural diversity at

My children are not even Catholic and have never been treated badly! The school is a Christian atmosphere who welcomes all families of all races. They also welcome any parent volenteer as long as they are willing to be finger printed for the safety of all our children!! My son was only in the 6th

I was very excited about putting my child there until he got there. This academic side of schooling is excellent The administration and staff are another story. You are called for the smallest thing your child does and threatened to be expelled if these 'minor disciplinary problems continue.' I feel

Blessed Trinity was once known for its high academic standards and family type of atmosphere. The current administration has reduced the ammount of volunteers allowed at the school and the emphasis is more on what your child looks like rather than what your child is learning. Likewise, the outward
