When Livia finished sixth grade in public school, we were determined to find her a place where she could be met where she is. Her experience there was inadequate. Her need for more stimulation and creativity were forced into a “disability” viewpoint. The best thing we did was take BJAMS up on the offer of having Livia shadow a student for a day, just to check it out. With fingers crossed we dropped her off. She was so welcomed and involved that when we picked her up “it had been the best day since kindergarten.” She now had a real experience to base a decision on, rather than what she had heard. From there we enrolled her in seventh grade. The result? She loves it!

I began teaching math for the Upper Level grades at Bishop Marshall School in 2013. The smaller class sizes allow for a more personal involvement with students and their parents. When you drive up to the school in the morning and see Carrie Wilson, and often another teacher welcoming each student, you know that this is a group of professionals who care about the lives that they are influencing each and every day. We would more than recommend BJAMS to anyone considering how to best serve their child’s schooling needs.
