My daughter is now in her second year at BC and she loves it. We, her parents, love it, too - particularly after the unsatisfying experience at Cynwyd Elementary. The principal, Mr. Potten, is engaged and energetic. The 7th Grade teachers are all enthusiastic (special note to the fabulous Latin teacher!) ...  Read more

Bala Cynwyd Middle School is a fantastic school and holds opportunity for any student to succeed. I have attended BC for the past 3 years, and I have had an incredible educational and social experience.

Great school, wonderful teachers, they want to make EVERY kid succeed. Great philosophy in dealing with 6-8th graders.

Dr. Andersen is an excellent leader and communicator. Most teachers have or are working on their advanced education degrees. The curriculum is robust with many offerings found only in private schools.

Lower Merion School District is all I've ever known for my whole entire school career, but Bala Cynwyd Middle School has certainly been the highlight, so far, of my sojourn to graduation. Academics are superior to most other schools in the region, with well-educated and caring teachers and three world ...  Read more

I luv Bala Cynwyd! I was new to this district but I got so many friends at BC. Teachers on team 6-2 are the best, and Dr.Pron is best computer teacher ever! There are great electives for World Language and the cafeteria food is awesome. There isn't a big amount of homework, and the music program is fantastic. ...  Read more

As a BC alumni, I have to say that this school isn't as great as I hoped it would be. The music program is better than most schools, but lacking compared to that of Welsh Valley (the other middle school in the district). Most teachers are good enough, some are great, but there are a good few who never ...  Read more

Mostly very good to excellent teachers. Strong principal. Music program quality has decreased with change in personnel, not as enjoyable for students. Math a strength. Latin, also strong, other language instruction not as strong, perhaps the curriculum and lower expectations for other languages in ...  Read more

Excellent facilities. Divisive principal limits acheivement by placating parents rather than enforcing discipline and supporting faculty. Faculty has excellent credentials and potential, limited by principal's devotion to public relations and elimination of parent complaints, even at the expense of ...  Read more

BCMS is the best school in LM! There are some weak teachers (like anywhere) and the scheduling of extras (like having to pull-out for orchestra and challenge) is bad. Scheduling is always a problem and even when they tinker w/it, it doesn't improve. Should also have sports options for 6th graders --teams ...  Read more
