School Routines

Learning the importance of a regular schedule is a great asset in developing a good work ethic. At BSC, we have six 55 minute lessons per day with two breaks (morning and afternoon). After the sixth period, students are dismissed and have the chance to join in our extracurricular activities that we hold within the school.
