Bullis Charter School (BCS), located in Los Altos, California, provides students and parents with an innovative, empowering and results oriented public school choice. At BCS, our programs inspire children and staff to reach for their full potential in an environment that nurtures collaboration, mutual respect, civic responsibility & lifelong love of learning. 
BCS has twice been named a California Distinguished School (2008 & 2014) for its signature STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) program and personalized learning in the form of Focused Learning Goals (FLGs) for every student.  BCS is one of only fourteen schools in the state to be recognized for having an Exemplary Visual and Performing Arts program by the California Department of Education and is a 2014 National Blue Ribbon School.
BCS is a Future Ready School

As a school that is educating students to be active participants in the global community, BCS is now recognized as a national future ready school. As part of this process, a team from BCS joined other schools and school districts from California and beyond to participate in the San Francisco Future Ready Summit and pledged to be future ready.

For BCS, future ready is:

  • Fostering/leading a culture of digital learning within our school so that our students think critically, behave safely and ethically, and participate responsibility in the digital world.

  • Empowering educators through professional learning opportunities and by developing teachers as leaders.

  • Providing access to quality digital content so that BCS students are high-school, college, career, and life ready. BCS students are empowered to drive their own learning through focused learning goals and their personal interests and passions.

  • Mentoring other school and districts and helping them transition to digital learning so that they can learn from our experience.
