Why We're Unique

s.t.e.a.m. focus

BCS inspires students to reach beyond
themselves to achieve their full potential.

BCS provides every student with an innovative, engaging and rigorous education.

Starting with an integrated curriculum that blends visual and performing arts with science, technology, math, and engineering, the BCS S.T.E.A.M (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) program offers a uniquely well-rounded education that is accessible to every student. Students not only gain a deeper conceptual understanding of the material but have authentic opportunities to apply their learning to solve real world issues.

Integrating Subjects

One of the core tenets of our program is teaching students about the interconnectedness of the world around them, and we fundamentally believe that starts with integrating curricula across different subject areas.

Technology

Every student at BCS has access to our FabLab and Makerspace, which are outfitted with the latest technologies and state-of-the-art tools, including 3-D printers, laser cutters, robotics kits, and rapid prototype materials that promote designing, scientific modeling, and computer programming.

Award Winning Model

Our S.T.E.A.M program was recognized by the California Department of Education as an exemplary practice in 2014. Our S.T.E.A.M program is aligned to the Common Core Standards (CCSS) as well as the new Next Generation Science Standards.

BCS, in partnership with the Santa Clara County Office of Education, provides year-long S.T.E.A.M. training sessions for educators from throughout Santa Clara County who want to transform their schools and districts. Through sharing our programs and best practices, BCS plays an important role in impacting and improving the educational experience for students throughout the county.
