Being a student at BHMS was definitely an enriching and fulfilling experience - I enjoyed going to school every day! I don't recall being stressed at all, namely because I was able spend my time following my own interests every day. There was a perfect balance between structure and freedom, and I feel that my years of learning there contributed greatly to who I am today.
Looking back on my experiences they were overall very positive. While I definitely went through a few years of disliking homework (as I'm sure most children do), I still enjoyed everything else about school and in hindsight the homework was not a huge stress on me. The music program, annual theatrical presentations, and sports kept my involved in ways that went beyond the classroom. Other students were all very passionate about the school and I never felt disengaged.
