AS IRON SHARPENS IRON...
72% of BBS middle and high school students participate in athletics each year, and that number is growing.
Since 1952, athletics have been the "physical" aspect of the BBS mission, "to fully nurture the physical potential of each student." There are several exceptional benefits to participating in sports. The three schools are committed to this growth from elementary to high school. The principals along with the athletic directors at each school are "ALL IN" for the future of BBS athletics. GO BUCS!
