BMA is an awesome school. We moved from out of state and were disappointed to find out that Louisiana as a whole was behind academically by 1-2 years from our schools at home. However, we found that the curriculum at BMA surpassed all public and most private schools we researched. They were able to meet

The environment is also such a blessing, the principle is very kind, knows how to motivate and encourage every student, and keeps a safe and Godly environment in the school. I would not enroll my children at another school. My eldest has graduated and gone on to further her education. Graduating with honors and TOPS awards, as well as academic scholarship offers from in state and out of state schools. I would say BMA did a great job in preparing her to succeed. I would recommend this school to anyone who wants quality education and environment. Read less

Every now and then, the teacher may pick out some key points in the lesson, but overall the kids are doing the lesson by themselves on the computer. The classes are not separated they have 4th and 5th graders to gether and next year they will have 6th and 7th graders together, And so on. Now I know why the work is just being facilitated because the teachers do not have enough time to teach each grade accordingly. If your child is not a visual or self-learner this would be a waste of time and money for you! Read less
