I have no idea why people are complaining about sleep deprivation. Let's face it, when you get accepted into an advanced studies school you will not have 10 hours of sleep everyday. I studied in Korea for a little bit and there are MIDDLE schoolers who stayed up all night and got about 0-4 or 5 hours ...  Read more

Continuing from the previous post due to the character limit, I'd like to add that there is some unnecessarily tedious work assigned. However, I personally never suffered from chronic sleep deprivation, although some BCA students do. I generally sleep eight hours per night, which I think is a healthy ...  Read more

Having been a student at this school, I feel like the responses below don't truly reflect what BCA is all about. Personally, I feel like some of my friends love BCA, while others don't really like it. However, I'm going to tell you the objective truth. It is true that BCA is a competitive place to get ...  Read more

Don't come here. As a to be grad of AMST, I can say that these four years were truly horrendous. Teachers are subpar and laugh at you if you don't understand anything. Having a PhD does not give you the right to teach; most of the teachers with PhD have trouble explaining introductory material to students, ...  Read more

I am a sophomore student in ABF (the Academy for Business & Finance). Going into BCA last September, I was so excited to be a part of this great, prestigious school. My only hesitation was that I wasn't really that interested in the Academy I had been accepted into. However, despite my worries, my Freshman ...  Read more

I'm a parent who was fortunate to have two children at BCA. One was in the Academy for Science and Math, while the other was in the the Academy for Visual and Performing Arts. Both found friends, had successful high school careers, and went on to fine college programs that suited their interests. BCA ...  Read more

I fully agree with the student below who advised not sending a child here. The administration/teachers fuel this pressure cooker environment in which there is excessive quantity rather than quality homework in many classes. This results in dangerous chronic sleep deprivation especially in upper classmen. ...  Read more

As a graduate of this high school, I find that the environment was amazing. So many different types of kids housed under one roof with one commonality among us - the desire to succeed. I believe that the reason I enjoyed my time there was because being in a competitive environment made each student strive ...  Read more

Do not listen to these reviews. Unlike these parents, I actually went to school here, in AEDT (the Engineering and Design Academy), and graduated from this school. If you value your child's freedom, creativity, and especially if you want him to actually enjoy his high school years, I would not suggest ...  Read more

On the positive side the kids are mainly happy here and there's a great atmosphere in school with lots of freedom. The teachers also are generally quite dedicated and work hard. However the child is pigeonholed into whatever academy they chose and cannot change. The introductory science courses for 4 ...  Read more
