About BSM

As a graduate of Benilde High School and as a current Benilde-St. Margaret's parent, I welcome you to this website. We are very excited about our many events and the recognition and honors that we have received in recent years, and we have developed this website as a resource to keep you informed of all Red Knight happenings and highlights.

Bob-for-Website-Fall2011.gifIn the classrooms, on the field, in academic competitions, and in service programs, our students and staff have the opportunity to grow and learn from each other daily. Our Catholic tradition, continued pursuit of excellence, and thirst for innovation allow us to develop the highest individual potential in mind, body, and spirit. Working in partnership with parents and challenging our students with a college preparatory curriculum, we prepare young adults to be responsible decision-makers in an ever-expanding global society. Each year, as we send our seniors out into the world we are confident of their ability to continue to use the gifts and talents they so generously shared with us.

As I walk these halls each day, I have the opportunity to witness, first hand, the excitement that occurs when great teachers challenge our students to achieve beyond their expectations. To those of you who have entrusted your child(ren) to our care: thank you. I firmly believe that they are getting the best education possible. To those of you who are considering a BSM education for your child (or perhaps you are a potential Red Knight yourself): we hope that the enthusiasm from those of us already a part of the BSM community is contagious. I invite you to come and check us out and learn all that you can about this special place that we call Benilde-St. Margaret's.
