Description

  • 100% of BCCS’s graduating classes have been accepted to college. The majority of our students will be the first in their families to earn college degrees.
  • In 2018, 95% of BCCS students scored Advanced or Proficient on the 10th grade ELA MCAS exam, and 95% of BCCS students scored Advanced or Proficient on the 10th grade Math MCAS. Additionally, 88% of BCCS students scored Advanced or Proficient on the 9th grade Physics MCAS exam.
  • The school accepts students by random public lottery.


Current Opening

We are looking for a smart, problem-solving, self-reflective, and passionate Music Director who wants to be part of a dynamic team to help continue to BUILD a school and to SHAPE its future direction. This position starts in December and ends the first week of April and is created as the position responsible for teaching all of the vocal music for Freaky Friday the Musical to students in grades 9-12, for organizing and conducting a pit band (while playing keyboard 1) during tech week and performances. The role entails 3-6 hours per week on average between the hours of 3:00-5:00pm. Tech Week (April 1-5), the Director’s time commitment will increase to up to 4 hours/day for tech rehearsals and performances. There will be no work during school breaks (December 21-January 2 and February 16-25). Applicants must have previous experience in musical arts and in teaching secondary students. Ideally, applicants will have teaching experience in an urban school. In addition, all of our teachers:


  • believe in measuring student academic achievement in tangible ways;
  • believe that data should drive instruction and that curriculum should be based on clear and rigorous standards;
  • believe that everyone at a school should be held strictly accountable for their work: students, families, teachers, administrators, and Board members;
  • believe we must all do whatever it takes to make sure a student learns;
  • believe the best way we can instill confidence in students, and prepare them for college, is to ensure they first master a core set of academic skills before tackling higher-level, abstract material;
  • believe in having the highest expectations for all students and not making excuses for them, the school, or staff;
  • believe in building a positive school culture where respect, enthusiasm, effort, achievement, perseverance, community, and hard work are valued; and
  • believe that for every problem, there is a solution, that if we can’t find the answer immediately, we simply work longer, harder, and smarter.
