    "BPA (Biltmore Preparatory Academy) is Rated an "A" school because that's exactly who they are. I drive 50 miles from home to bring my daughter to school. We live 1 block away from a school in our district but they just don't cut it. BPA's principle, staff & teachers are always helpful, communicative, loving & most importantly forward thinking on education. My daughter was lucky enough to get into the Spanish immersion program & we love it because of it's diversity! BPA offers so many different programs for every age group & is always striving to focus on the children's needs. BPA is a GEM hidden in a small neighborhood & those lucky enough to find it receive great value! One things for sure, BPA is similar to a private school without the huge costs. There is a no-nonsense tolerance to negative behavior & things are always dealt with, with great care & fairness. This school also highlights excellent behavior & give kudos to students as part of their endeavors to reinforce positive behavior. No School is perfect, but for us: BPA is the place to be! Lastly, as a parent who is always looking for the best for her child, I highly recommend Biltmore Preparatory Academy."

    "My son is in the Spanish Immersion program for his third year. My son travels 30 minutes commute to get to school, but it is worth it BECAUSE there are ONLY 24 students in his second grade class. The former parent must not be hearing that other schools have drastically raised their class sizes. I currently teach at a school where 2nd grade classes have 34 kids in a class and the kinder and 1st grades have 31. (That is unacceptable and one of the several reasons my son doesn't attend the schools in my neighborhood.) It's just too bad the housing close to Biltmore is so expensive!!! We have been happy with all the teachers our son has had, we love the office staff and the previous principal and current principal. We plan for our second son to attend Biltmore next year. :)"

    "Too many students for one teacher. Currently there are about 24 students in my child second grade class! Personalizing my childs educational needs worries me with so many students. Yes I will be looking for a new school!"

    "Biltmore Preparatory is the school our grandsons attend. I have been impressed with the warmth of the staff towards the students, as well as visitors on the campus. Both of our grandsons are doing outstanding work learning self motivation, as well as team building. I am thankful that they have the opportunity to learn and grow at Biltmore Preparatory."

    "Biltmore Preparatory has turned out to be an excellent choice for us. We are approaching the end of our son's 2nd year (2 grade) there and we have no plans of moving schools in the future. We originally chose this school based on their curriculum and the genuine personality that principle Ms. Burtamekh has. I love that Burtamekh knows almost every family, says hello and makes us feel welcomed everyday. The office staff is always friendly and helpful. Every teacher my son has had has been professional and capable. Our son is in gifted & Spanish immersion and I am constantly impressed by the material he's learning. They even have homework on Apple Ipads a few times during the week, which is both fun for the kids and relevant in our technologically driven world. I feel that there is not a lot of hype surrounding BPA (as there is around other comparable schools in the general area) which is what I like about it. It's a great school that is known to be wonderful by the families that attend. I hope it continues to succeed and enhance the learning environment for the children."
