BCS learned this week that we have been selected by Microsoft as one of 80 outstanding Mentor Schools from around the world! Our application, video and other documents clearly showed our school’s passion for and efforts toward innovative teaching and learning. It was also clear to the external review group of educators that we are dedicated to improving student learning and mentoring other schools. We should feel immense pride toward this achievement as our application was judged by an external group of education experts among a group of extremely qualified schools.

The Microsoft Mentor School Program is an exclusive one-year program created to recognize innovative schools globally who are using technology to transform education. Mentor Schools will have access to technology, specialized professional development and will receive an all-expense paid trip to the next Microsoft in Education Global Forum. This is, at first, a tremendous recognition to our BCS community, though, most importantly, will prove to be a tremendous yearlong learning experience for us.
