Boyd-buchanan School Reviews
Boyd Buchanan is a pre-K - 12 Christian School. BBS students have the widest range of religious backgrounds of any religious private school in Chattanooga. It is academically rigorous while maintaining an emphasis on community service and Christian values. Boyd offers multiple AP classes and fine arts activities, and the school has one of the most successful athletic traditions in the city. All of this from a private school that does NOT have a selective admissions policy. You will love the school, both of my children do.
Bouyd is a Church of Christ School. If your Christian beliefs fit their view of Christ- you'll likely enjoy it. If your child, fits their student model- then you're OK. Many of the teachers care... and communication is fair. However, should you have a child with challenges - be careful. In High School - one mistake and you're out - that was our experience.... Felt as if the school administration turned their back on our child. Suggest you interview many parents including those whose child is in their first year. I wish I had never set foot there. My view is the school is seeking atheltic kids who will do well at school. Non-atheletic kids - better find a nitch -and quickly. I found the kids are exceptionally brutal to those who don't fit the mold.
