    I currently have two students attending BGJHS and am very pleased with their education. The needs of my children and all children have been and continue to be met on a daily basis. Thank you BGJHS faculty and staff for your hard work and dedication.

    This school fails to challenge gifted children and has no program suited to their particular needs. Many attempts have been made to discuss this issue with the principal but she is unmoved and refuses to acknowlege that this is an funcion of a school. Parent input is not welcome at this school.

    I am currently going to this school and I love every part of it. The school receives full marks in everything.
