BMHS is a Catholic, full service college prep school. It is extremely diverse with faculty and administration that truly care about each pupil and their respective families. There are numerous extra curricular opportunities and a wealth of resources for the students at their disposal. I am both an alumni and a parent of a current student. My child has completely bought in to the BMHS culture and he has thrived. I could not be more happy with our decision to keep BMHS as part of our family history. Go Knights!

I love the culture! I can truly said I had a great high school experience. The BMHS pride is so real. Having spirit weeks each semester really helped the student become more involved with each other and strived to work together. We always came together as a community. Each grade got to on a retreat and learn more about each other. Becoming a strong unit. I was fortunate to host a retreat and being able to share my experiences with my friends and learn about my classes shows we all come from different backgrounds. Plus learning to respect each other for who we are.
