  • In 2017, 100% of BCCS students scored Advanced or Proficient on the 10th grade ELA MCAS exam, and 97% of BCCS students scored Advanced or Proficient on the 10th grade Math MCAS. Additionally, 100% of BCCS students scored Advanced or Proficient on the 9th grade Physics MCAS exam.
  • The school accepts students by random public lottery.
