    BCAM is a school with a small student body so it has a family atmosphere. The teachers & parents work together to make sure the students reach their full potential. Honestly they have approx 4 Parent/Teacher meetings while most schools only have 2 in a school year. BCAM tunes into a child's creativity as well as academics. I might be a little bias but I am so glad my son attends this school. Many Regards
