Open Quote My oldest child has gone here since the doors opened in 2006. He has had, what I believe to be, a wonderful education. The staff truly cares about the kids and it shows. Any issues we've had over the years were always heard and handled well. We're sad that my oldest will be leaving the BLRA family to go to high school, but his little brother will continue to attend. I'd recommend this school to anyone looking to provide a quality education to their child while having an active role in that education. Close Quote

Open Quote This school focuses on the student and helping them to succeed in all their classes. The teachers are very professional and are more than willing to help their students. Our daughter's lowest mark was a 93% in English, and they were looking for ways to help her improve! This school is fantastic and I would recommend it to anyone. Close Quote

Open Quote I don't recommend this school at all. My son became very depressed and fell behind while at this school. 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.
