Open Quote not good for boys. Unresponsive to concerns, facilities poor, grades 4&5 neglected for middle school. Marketing excellent, reality poor. Stem/Program is not better than public school, nor is preparation for high school. Trips are more expensive and the 'donation' is way more expensive. Many parents pay and need to feel that they get value for money so are super enthusiastic. Reality is not so easy to accept. Bullying pervasive. Disproportionate punishments, kids not allowed to make age appropriate mistakes. Highly political. Close Quote

Open Quote BCS is an exceptional program for the whole child. Each day, my kids are excited to go to school and smiling when I pick them up. Their varied schedule makes sure they never get bored. Project based learning incorporates a bit of everything, including math, science, reading, writing, art. Drama, music, foreign language and PE round out the program. Thank you to the entire BCS staff for their dedication to the students. Close Quote

Open Quote Bullis Charter has been awesome for us. Our kids enjoy and look forward to going to school everyday. They are engaged, love to read and learn and like their teachers.

The homework is pretty easy and takes about 15-20 min a day or 1-2 hrs if you decide to leave it all for the weekend. The teaching methodology is great and we feel they really make an effort to teach the kids in a way that each kid learns their own way- but they make sure they do. All this without putting any pressure on the kids. I think they use some methods and call them 'Whole Child' teaching and there's 'Focused Learning goal' and 'Project based learning'. I'm not one for remembering fancy names (good thing I don't get tested). I just know its good and works.

There are lots of great extra curricular programs and not just for name. They are very serious about these and have dedicated and excellent specialist teachers for Music, Art, Drama, Foreign Language (Mandarin).

The school is pretty diverse. My guess is about 40% Asian (Chinese, Indian, Other), 40% Caucasian, 10% Black and 10% Hispanic and Latin.

Parents are very engaged and volunteer often. If you live in Los Altos, you should definitely check it out. They have a North and South campus now which makes it pretty accessible to most. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
