    My daughter attended this school for kindergarten and it was simply amazing. I can't believe how much she learned the level at which she's reading and the math she's able to do at age six! The teachers are incredibly caring and dedicated. I feel very lucky that we "won" the lottery for her to attend BCMCS.

    I am currently a student at BCMCS. This school is so much fun! I love to work at my own pace and all summer I am preparing and getting excited for school. Each student independently works in the morning to finish their math grammar word study and geometry. The school also has history botany zoology art writing reading music computers library and several more. So glad I came to this school!

    This school is a treasure. The building itself is only a couple years old and plans are underway to make improvements to provide for more outside areas for recess. The children thrive in the Montessori environment. The entire student population is polite and respectful to the teachers and staff as well as each other. The kids are able to excel in their work without limitation have individualized care by the teachers and extraordinary freedoms in exploring their own talents and interests. Some may think the Montessori method of teaching is not structured but the children have clear routines and responsibilities each day and are accountable for completing their work. The foundation that this experience provides the children will serve them well throughout their lives.

    Hidden Gem in Bucks County. Teachers are caring intelligent creative - my children learn without feeling they are in school. At the end of the Summer they drive me crazy asking 'when do we get to go back to school'?? My child who graduated in 6th grade was a year or two ahead in math from Public schools in the area. Not crazy about appointed Board of Trustees but inside the four walls is something special!!!!

    Our students learn at their own pace and learn to love learning! Not only is no child left behind but all students leap ahead!

    The teachers and staff are wonderful. They make this school great. Kudos to them! This is the perfect school for a motivated self-learner. It is not however for the child who is easily distracted or who needs the more structured environment of a traditional school. My son loves that he can complete his daily work then go on to work on what interests him. I wish that the school looked more like a school and less like an office building. A parking lot is not an ideal playground for children!

    I wnet to this school last year and this school is the best school a child can ask to go to. Everything they teach you will help you in life. Viva la BCMCS!

    My daughter has been attending BCMCS for just over 5 years now. This school is great for kids that can work independently or need to learn to do so. The older kids mentor the younger kids and students are encouraged to help each other. This is a great environment and a wonderful community. I highly recommend this school!

    BCMCS is one of the greatest academically challenging charter schools in the Pennsylvania area. The teachers and administration do a fantastic job in administering and motivating the students in a true Montessori style.

    I love this school. My son is not an easy person to encourage to learn but he is very intelligent. Children's House gives him the opportunity to learn and grow at his own pace. And they also encourage new challenges. The teachers are awesome and have been through alot with my son I appreciate their patience.
