    "BAM is a school with a fully engaged principal, completely committed staff, and an active family community. It also has a very nicely run after school program with exciting after school enrichment offerings. Although it has little green space on the yard, it's nestled in a residential neighborhood on quiet streets in a lively and fun Berkeley neighborhood. Most BAM teachers do an excellent job of providing differentiated learning in the classroom and, with rare exception, are extraordinarily sophisticated and dedicated-- far more than you might expect but exactly what you would hope for in this college town. In addition, BAM has a lot of great connections with the University, including Saturday engineering classes for girls run by Cal grad students. What makes BAM particularly special, though, are its very talented, hard-working teachers and staff. Add to that, progressive ideals and a truly diverse student body, and it's near-perfect. You can't go wrong with any Berkeley public school, BAM especially."

    "BAM is a great school with a hard-working and thoughtful principal, creative and dedicated teachers, and a giving and involved parent community. We are a diverse group, with students from all different backgrounds and the principal and teachers work hard to create a welcoming, safe, and engaging learning environment for all the kids. BAM's parent community is dedicated to supporting the school with lots of volunteer coordination and crucial fundraising for critical programs such as PE, counseling, arts enrichment, field trips and more. We have had 3 kids go through BAM and are grateful to be part of this community."

    "This our first year at BAM, and so far we have been very impressed with our son's teacher and Principal Collins. Our son is sensitive and can be challenging at times, so we have made efforts to keep open lines of communication with his teacher. She is always very thorough with her responses, and she has made time to return emails and phone calls. The school seems very organized - newsletters, paperwork going back and forth to school, etc. We are so happy!"

    "BAM has a strong set of teachers, an amazing principal, and a very involved parent community. During my four years so far at BAM, I have seen things only get better for the kids, the school and the community. There is a very engaged and diverse PTA with representatives holding seats for African-American Affairs, Latino Affairs, LGBTQ Afffairs, Special Education, Asian and API Affairs, etc. We have been able to find help for anything we have needed - and here is a special Thank You to the counseling and special ed department - they are a talented and dedicated crew."
