Our Programs

Computer Science Immersion programs in BPS provide a deeper dive into computer science. The computer science Immersion program provides opportunities for students to learn computer science in the context of other subject areas, exemplifying computer science’s vast impact on all disciplines.

Computer Science Education

Our teachers integrate elements of science, technology, engineering, art, and math across the curriculum. In addition we host two STEAM Activity Days each year to offer special opportunities to students. We value our partnerships with Richardson Nature Center, Minnesota Valley National Wildlife Refuge, and Science From Scientists.

All grade 5 students have the opportunity to participate in band and orchestra.
