How has Bessemer Academy grown and changed from last school year to now?
There are 150 new students since last year. Mrs. Morrow, our guidance counselor, said that they all fit in very well, like they have been here forever, and are all individually amazing students who have brought in many new ideas. We also asked Mrs. Kelly, our headmaster, her thoughts on all the new students. She said that she is very proud of how focused they are on academics. That their general behavior is really impressive and they are very appropriate as far as dress code and manners. We have had to divide the honors classes in high school. Now instead of two regular classes and one honors class for each grade, we have two honors and one regular class. She loves that our school is moving in a direction of high level academics.
