Principal Jason Potten

Thank you for visiting our website and for your interest in BCMS. I encourage you to explore our site to learn more about our award-winning school, and the people and programs that make Bala Cynwyd such an outstanding place to learn, work and grow.

Built in 1939, BCMS has a long and rich tradition of excellence and innovation. Our beautiful school building is on the National Register of Historic Places and recent renovations ensure that the facility is well-equipped for 21st century learning. We are a two-time, nationally-recognized Blue Ribbon School of Excellence. Our performing arts program is among the finest in the nation. Our TSA and Science Olympiad teams consistently excel at the state and national level. These are just a few examples in a long list of school points of pride.

Consistent with the mission of Lower Merion School District, our staff is deeply committed to continuous improvement for the benefit of our students and will work collaboratively to ensure that all students are challenged and reach their full potential. We strive to create a safe, supportive school environment where students are valued as individuals and are encouraged to explore their unique interests and passions. We are focused on developing the skills, creativity, and knowledge necessary for our students to be successful 21st century learners.

Thanks, again for visiting our website. We hope you'll return throughout the school year to read more about our extraordinary school.
