    BP is an unique school. The brand new facility is set up in 3 wings dividing the school into 3 mini schools. Each wing has 6 7 and 8th graders in blended classrooms. The students stay in their assigned wing for all 3 years and have the same teachers all three years. This allows the teachers to get to know the students and offer a program that caters to the needs of the student whether the student has difficulties or advanced skills. I highly recommend this system as a parent of children at both ends of the spectrum.
