    "Would totally do this again. Except maybe the courses chosen would be different."

    "Overall, it is possibly the best high school in MA and also one of the top schools in the nation. Their emphasis on classics and traditional liberal arts education, along with very rigorous science courses, make them unique. The opportunities to take AP classes are endless, although it is restricted to 3 AP courses per year. The quality of the teachers are extraordinary and they genuinely care about the students' learning. The teachers are available after classes and usually very approachable. The stress level is quite high due to tons of homework and a constant barrage of tests, quizzes, and exams. But, in the end, you learn a lot. Be prepared to devote many long hours in the evening and perhaps some late night studying. However, if you are a dedicated student and wiling to put in the extra effort, you will come out of this school with the knowledge and confidence that is unparalleled. If you can excel at BLS, you can excel at anywhere (I truly mean it) else in the world."

    "Most teachers are knowledgeable and go above and beyond. Some teachers retain archaic beliefs that negatively impact the environment."

    "The teaching staff is a mixed bag. Half love their work, respect their students, and try their darnedest to do right by the kids. They're knowledgeable about the subject they teach and design their curriculum to be as comprehensible and engaging as possible. Their grading practices are well explained and consistent throughout the entire course (though there is no school-wide standard for grading). However, the other half display complete disinterest in actually teaching. They're disorganized, demeaning, and dismissive of students who try to ask questions in order to do well. These teachers are often egocentric, and will shut down their students in class discussions or spend more time making sure they are recognized as the smartest person in the room. Their grading methods tend to be inconsistent, if there is a discernible method in the first place. Grading practices vary between teachers; some teachers don't have a discernible method."

    "My AP teachers were the strongest. All the teachers are challenging in their own ways. They have high expectations and many different kinds of projects. Our school had a special emphasis on public speaking with our tradition of declamation. We had a separate grade on our report card just for how we recited a chosen piece. Most grading was fair."
