BMSA isn't for everyone. It's a relatively new school so things are still being worked out, but the staff is incredible and has always made it really rewarding. The campus is awesome and we have a lot of independence by senior year. I only gave it 3/5 because the stress levels were very high across the grades and sometimes the systems in place can be overwhelming. That said, we've done a lot of projects, met a lot of people, and had experiences I wouldn't have had the opportunity for anywhere else. It's thanks to Bio-Med I have an awesome internship and a lot of supportive community and direction, but I have to be honest and say it wasn't always a smooth ride to get there. My mental health often took a toll and it was hard to find support in the academy to balance it. Overall, it's a school with a specific set of pros and cons. BMSA has an amazing staff with a unique environment and hands on learning, but you have to know how to manage the workload/opportunities with your limits, too!

The best part about Bio-Med was by far the teachers and the community. The teachers here are very understanding and make this school have a unique community. Learning is fun and engaging but for anyone looking at careers outside of STEM or medical, they don't really offer support or classes for you to choose from. It also feels like the administration is only worried about protecting their image and will use certain students as poster children so they look better instead of congratulating the student.
Bio-Med Science Academy has been a wonderful experience overall. Getting to meet many people who come from different backgrounds with the same determination as you is a great experience. Being on a college campus with young and intuitive teachers has made the learning material much better and I feel very prepared for college. Being a school that is so heavily focused on academics and sciences, sports that I used to play was not an option so that is the only downfall.
